Kevin Price, CEO/President, AccuCode and  Colorado Companies to Watch Winnerenclosure-voice 1091_ 10/10/11 - We first interviewed Kevin Price, CEO and President of AccuCode, back in the early 2000s. He's built a winning team and a great organization, gone through all sorts of challenges and has really done super well. Their catch phrase is 'Technology at the speed of business' and they have won the prestigious honor of Colorado Companies to Watch award for 2011. Kevin said, "We're pretty diversified" with seven different business units, three SaaS products and two different managed service business units. And they are [still] one of the largest value added resellers and integrators of industrial mobile computing and automated data collection technology in North America. Larry recalled Kevin was a leader in the early RFID development environment. Kevin said when he got started, "Bar code scanners were $2,000 a piece and now, they go for about $50 to $75. And/but now we ship them by the pallet full instead of two at a time." AccuCode supports small and really huge organizations, Larry asked Kevin, "What do you see today as some of the biggest challenges organizations are facing today?" Kevin's reply, "At the moment, I think, the misconduct of our government and the associated fiscal irresponsibility that goes along with it, that represents the biggest risk to every business in the U.S. right now. I don't know how quickly that will get resolved, but it is what it is.We actually love recessions. During recessions, resources get cheap; as I like to tell our employees, it's really easy to ignore inefficiency when you're growing and profitable. But when you're shrinking - losing money, efficiency becomes paramount and people become receptive to change. We at AccuCode are change agents. Our job is to go in and drive efficiency through application of technology and so these are fairly favorable times for us. Cloud computing and mobility are going to impact every industry, every vertical on the planet over the next decade." Kevin goes onto offering more timely advice...listen for more...

Kathleen Quinn Votaw, CEO, TalenTrust and Immedate past president, ACG Denver We have to respect both ends of the spectrum
enclosure-voice 1093_ 10/10/11 - She is well known to the w3w3® Colorado audience as past president of ACG Denver, but Kathleen Quinn Votaw is also the CEO of TalenTrust, a unique, local recruitment firm - Kathleen has 25 years in this space. At TalenTrust, they help small and mid sized companies attract the very best people so they can grow their companies to the next level, using a very unique methodology that is not out there in the recruitment universe. At w3w3.com, we regularly receive the TalenTrust Newsletter and the last issue was a great reminder for those firms looking to hire new employees, as well as the rest of us. The Newsletter talked about ‘respect’. Kathleen said, "Sometimes, not intentionally, there is a lack of respect in the candidate process. Candidates are also looking for the right culture to join, so respect during the candidate process is key. Then once you actually hire someone, treating your team with dignity and respect is of the utmost importance." Kathleen points out that they're fortunate to deal with the clients, the firms needing to acquire talent, and then they have another whole group - business people that we serve and those are our candidates. We asked Kathleen what prompted her to write about this subject. She offered an example of a company that approached the recruiting process in an arrogant manner. You know, 'who are you and what value will you add to the company?' and didn't provide any opportunity for the candidate to understand what value the company would bring to them. Kathleen said, "As we continue to change as a culture, we have to respect both ends of the spectrum, the employer and the potential employee. When you're building those relationships you must know that all relationships begin and end with respect." You can find more articles on the TalenTrust web site that focus on hiring for character first and competency second. Check this out...

Larry Gray, CEO, Assist Group and CCTW Winner 2011 Evaluating catastrophic medical claims is a very complex process
enclosure-voice 1087_ 10/3/11 - We're talking with another winner today, that's a Colorado Companies to Watch winner, Larry Gray, CEO of the Assist Group. Larry has a fascinating background - he's been the CEO of three successful startups, COO of a $500 million publicly traded company, president and CEO of a $2 Billion traded company and the list goes on. The Assist Group reviews and resolves catastrophic medical claims for a number of markets in the reinsurance area. So, reinsurance companies, health plans, managing general underwriters and large self insured employers. These claims get over $200,000 to $300,000, they go into the reinsurance layer and that's where the Assist Group takes over, above that layer. Evaluating catastrophic medical claims is a much more complex process than just running them through a technological coding audit. They actually have nurses, clinical specialists and coding experts take the claim apart, look at it from all the angles and then they report back to the clients on what they've found. the goal is to find trends, educate the market and then provide this good data coming back. One thing to note is catastrophic claims have tripled since 2005! Claims around the million dollar mark are growing and growing rapidly. Most of that is due to implants, drugs and technological invention and the aging of the population. Larry said as employers get larger and larger, they think of themselves as entities that can take some risk and have some clout in terms of dealing with physician groups and hospitals, and writing their own contracts. Many of them are trying to establish a good direction before we either become or get away from more federal intervention in terms of the healthcare world. Larry offers observations, important opinions and great advice as well as dealing effectively in our current economic environment going forward. You will want to hear the entire interview, so listen now!

ACG Denver, New and Past Presidentsenclosure-voice 1090_ 10/10/11 - The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Denver, the premier community for middle market M&A dealmakers and business leaders, is proud to announce that Todd Roebken, Managing Director with Jones Lang LaSalle, has been selected as President of the Denver chapter. Mr. Roebken’s two-year term began September 1, 2011. At the October ACG Denver meeting, we cornered Todd, Dave Mead [past president], and [immediate past president] Kathleen Quinn Votaw. We asked for an overview of their companies and what they do.

I look forward to the next two years, which is when I believe we will see some aggressive growth in this region.” .

Whatever you give out you get back 10 fold
Michael Jones and Larry McKeogh - 2nd Annual Product Camp - October 29thenclosure-voice 1092_ 10/10/11 - The Second Annual un-conference - Product Camp is coming up on October 29th. Wondering what a non-conference is? It is your opportunity to develop the agenda and create the value of the program to coincide directly with your own needs, extend your network, and get as much out of the conference as you put into it! We spoke with Larry McKeogh and Michael Jones the creators of this unusual, no fee, interesting event that draws a few hundred folks from up and down the front range. Larry McKeogh is a product manager, which means he takes products and creates the best possibilities for them in the market place. Michael Jones says he's sort of a product manager and the vice president of a startup in Boulder - they make manufacturing equipment. And Michael added, "Because we are small, I clean bathrooms and do everything else at the same time." Larry asked one of his favorite questions for business leaders, "What are the biggest challenges people, leaders and organizations are facing in this economic environment?" From Larry McKeogh's point of view it is 'innovation'. Many companies are asking their employees to do more with less. They need to break into new markets and they're asking them to be very innovative. Michael Jones has a different view as a startup at a unique juncture where they have a new product, they have acceptance and a down market. Without capital it's difficult to fund the ramp up [probably will happen next year]. "It is difficult to innovate because they're developing at a slower rate than if we had investment." So for an overview of the un-conference. Larry says, "It's a complete meritocracy - it's driven by the people, for the people and ultimately what you get out of it is what you put into it." This particular un-conference is centered around product management, product marketing and innovation type themes. Registration begins at 8:00am, a keynote speaker at 9:00am and three sessions in the morning and two sessions in the afternoon. It's completely free and lunch is provided. Michael points out that this [un]conference is free money wise - but it's not free on your time - you are supposed to come, present, learn, network - but there's no entrance fee...listen for more...
