Bill Soards, President, AT&T Colorado - Chairman of the Board, Colorado Technology Association Bill Soards, Public policy initiatives and wireless radio spectrum
enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - Wireless radio spectrum is probably the hottest topic in the industry today! Twelve years ago Bill Soards began working with Indiana Bell... aka, Ameritech, SBC and became AT&T over the course of time. But the company has been around over 100 years and Bill has had the opportunity of being in a couple different places. He's been here in Colorado just over three years now, and is the president of AT&T Colorado. As we learned last week, he is also the chairman of the board of the Colorado Technology Association. "A fabulous organization that advocates for all the various software, hardware, IT companies all across the state - it's a great organization to be a part of." he said. The state legislature is wrapping up their activities for the year. Bill said, “AT&T and a number of communications companies and stakeholders across the state were heavily involved this year. They worked to support a piece of legislation called, Senate Bill 157, a kind of telecommunications modernization act of 2012 - but it failed, unfortunately. For the last number of years there's been a lot of conversation about the telecom regulatory environment in Colorado. Most states update their definitions and telecom laws about every two or three years. Unfortunately in Colorado, it's been nearly two decades. That's been the subject of debate for the last two years. There's a lot at stake here, technology and communications are at the heart of our economic engine. Whether it's physical infrastructure or wireless infrastructure, we just need to update our state statutes to recognize that traditional telephone service isn't what it used to be. We need to clean those things up to encourage investment and jobs, and deployment of technology across Colorado. It's a competitive market place and as states and countries all across the world are doing everything possible to try to get infrastructure and broadband dollars into their various locations - we need Colorado to pay more attention to this. Nationally most of the conversation is about wireless. The CDC estimates that nearly 1/3 of Americans no longer have a traditional telephone in their home. We're seeing just amazing growth in wireless. It's not just telephones, it's tablets and GPS devices, it's gaming systems - there's just a massive explosion of all of these new devices that utilize the wireless network and that's causing quite a bit of congestion. Wireless radio spectrum is probably the hottest topic in the industry today.” ...listen now...

Benchmarking: Are women leading alongside men?
Marie Wilson, Lucy Sanders & Larry Nelson782_ 2/1/2010 enclosure-voice
In 1998, Marie Wilson founded The White House Project in recognition of the need to build a truly representative democracy – one where women lead alongside men in all spheres. Since its inception, The White House Project has been a leading advocate and voice on women’s leadership. An advocate of women’s issues for more than 30 years, Marie Wilson is founder and President of The White House Project, co-creator of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work ® Day and author of Closing the Leadership Gap: Why Women Can and Must Help Run the World (Viking 2004). The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) hosted the White House Project Benchmarking study. Marie led the eye-opening program. Lucy Sanders, the CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) along with Larry Nelson from interviewed Marie after the program. The White House Project, a national, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization, 501(c)(3), aims to advance women’s leadership in all communities and sectors, up to the U.S. presidency. By filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women, we make American institutions, businesses and government truly representative. Through multi-platform programs, The White House Project creates a culture where America’s most valuable untapped resource—women—can succeed in all realms. To advance this mission, The White House Project strives to support women and the issues that allow women to lead in their own lives and in the world. When women leaders bring their voices, vision and leadership to the table alongside men, the debate is more robust and the policy is more inclusive and sustainable. Listen, there's much more...

Larry Nelsoon and Aaron Harber, The Aaron Harber Show on Channel 3, Sunday Evenings at 8:00pm Aaron Harber, what government could learn from entrepreneurs
enclosure-voice 1210_ 5/14/12 - Our political environment is in a shambles and there is little opportunity to learn about the issues or the candidates in this super charged, unhealthy atmosphere.'s policy has been to avoid politics in favor of following the people and affirmative activities that make our business and economic environment work, and grow a healthy future. As we face another presidential election as well as state and national elections, we have discovered Aaron Harber, who with his TV show, presents non-partisan, mutually respectful, civil conversations about controversial issues in the political arena. It sounds like a dream come true and the opportunity for to help bring light to a very important area of our lives. This information has a tremendous impact on our business and local communities. Aaron tells us about his show, "The program is really an opportunity for people to see those opinion leaders, people in government, in business and academia and the media, talking about the key issues of the day. The show's effort is to always be non-partisan, so you see as many republicans as democrats on the show. And", said Aaron, "we wanted to be a place where people could come with confidence, knowing that they're going to get accurate information. The whole purpose is to demonstrate that you can have a mutually respectful, civil conversation about controversial issues. Which of course, you don't see a lot of on television today." With his entrepreneurial background we asked Aaron what government could learn from entrepreneurs and business. His answer, boiled down to learning efficiencies and setting priorities. One of the advantages in the free market is you rarely can do everything you want to do. In business there is a much greater distinction than government, between doing what you absolutely have to do vs. doing what you would like to do. You see more the necessity in business than you do in government. Government entities, while well intentioned, there is a tendency to do as much as government entities would like to do, and feel is a good thing to do. So the intention is positive but the decision that really should be made in government is what is it that we really have to do. You can find The Aaron Harber Show on Sunday evenings on Colorado TV Channel 3 at 8:00pm.

Chris Coughlin, Revenue North Chris Coughlin, Business Conference Focused on Revenue Growth
enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - Meet Chris Coughlin. Chris has a fantastic, interesting background. He is an entrepreneur and while this isn't the subject of our discussion today, Chris is involved in football coaching. His most successful business actually trains 35,000 football coaches each year in conferences across the country. Chris also does a little high school coaching in Colorado Springs. With that as a background, we're talking to Chris about his conference business, Revenue North - they have a conference coming up here in Denver on June 27th. Chris has a high interest in the "Blue Ocean Strategy" taken from the book of the same title (written by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne). What it did for Chris was to give a word picture to the way he's approached business his whole life. The word picture is, a red ocean, full of blood, representing a market with a lot of competitors fighting each other over the same ground. It's everyone competing along the same dynamic. If you can break into a blue ocean (the name of the book and a great word picture), out of the red ocean to the great blue sea, where there is unbounded opportunity to travel and cover as much ground as you want. Now we all have competition, but if you can develop your product or your pricing strategy - ideally both - you can make it so really you don't have competitors. Then, you're in the blue ocean. A great example is Apple / iTunes - they didn't approach the market in the same way as the people operating in the standard red ocean. Larry asked, "How does that strategy translate into value for your customers today?" Chris replied, using the Revenue North Conference here in Denver as an example. Chris was going to take his staff to a marketing conference about 18 months ago. The cost was staggering, a conference fee of $895 per person, plus air fare and hotel. It was going to be a $10 - $15K operation, plus a lot of coordination and a lot of headaches. "So" Chris said, "there are tons of business training options, the w3w3® website is one - it's great." Chris had to find a blue ocean strategy. How could he train business people including his own staff - but do it at a spectacular price, get a much better product than they could get anywhere else and make it local. He created Revenue North. "We've got 42 different sessions a person can hit in a day, seven concurrent sessions. Compared to $895 we can do it for $99."

Dave Allen, Associate Vice President, 
        Technology Transfer, University of Colorado Future success meant David Allen
had to give up his tenure

enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - David Allen, Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer at the University of Colorado is featured in the Profile of a Leader Series here on w3w3® Media Network. Before they got into the Leader Profile, Larry asked for David's forecast for the coming year. David said, "It's going to be a tough year. The economic horizon is looking a little brighter than it has for the last 12 months or so, but we're not seeing any finances, very little activity in M&A at our level; We see some of the ice starting to crack and hopefully melt; But for new companies and new ventures, which is our bread and butter, there's very little. I'm an eternal optimist and I know it's going to get better. For years we've known we would be in a revenue trough (we talked about this on your show before), we planned for that, we're going to be able to make it through that." David has a very interesting background and Larry had many questions including, "Who influenced you the most, he said his parents more than anyone else. But he thought about Elinor Ostrom who has won the Nobel Prize for Economics this year. She was David's advisor when working on his PhD at Indiana University. She is an absolutely wonderful person. What I learned from her was a sense of patience, to challenge yourself and surround yourself with bright intelligent people. I am immensely pleased to see her win, the first woman to ever have done that." Larry asked, "Can you imagine a failure you couldn't overcome, you had to live with?" David was a professor at Penn State, he had an opportunity to go to the Business School - in order to do that he had to give up his tenure. Tenure is hard earned a torturous process and he was turning his back on it. His friends and colleagues thought he was insane...there are many leadership suggestions...listen for more...

Bill Soards, President, AT&T Colorado & Chairman of the Board, CTA Bill Soards, we're fortunate in Colorado to be at the epicenter
enclosure-voice 1209_ 5/14/12 - Bill Swords serves as Chairman of the Board for Colorado Technology Association, started in 1994 originally called the Colorado Software Association. Over the years, like so many organizations, it's gone through some name changes. But there was a group of entrepreneurs in the early 90s that felt like the software industry in Colorado was really burgeoning and in need of some formal organization and so the Colorado Software Association was born, later they adopted the word Internet into the group as well. And just about a year or so ago, we became known as the Colorado Technology Association. At AT&T, appointed in April of 2009, Soards is responsible for all external affairs for AT&T in the state which includes state and local government relations, community affairs, regulatory and legislative activities, and initiatives before the Colorado General Assembly and Colorado’s Public Utilities Commission. Bill said, "It's interesting, the industry has been around for a long time but the association historically, has been one of networking. You know, it's largely an organization of entrepreneurs, and as these small business people so typically do - they're off running their businesses, trying to make payroll, trying to secure capital, funding for expansion and growth." About two years ago, the Colorado legislature passed a software tax, which didn't apply just to software companies but to all businesses in the state, so that suddenly their software products that they would purchase, would be subject to state sales tax. That kind of woke ‘the sleeping giant’ that is the technology industry in the state. So it became a natural for the association to begin increasing our activity in the public affairs and legislative arena. We found very quickly, there weren't many legislators around the capital that had a really good understanding of technology or all of these companies in their districts that are hiring people, investing and creating jobs. So the first kind of public policy mission of CTA became to repeal that Colorado software tax. ..There's much more, listen now...
