Event Secondary Body

Join ACG St. Louis for an Elite Speaker Series event with Dave Nelsen, President of Dialog Consulting Group as he discusses technology for executives - doubling productivity using tablets, apps, and smartphones.

The rate of change in the business world is accelerating … exponentially! Darwin observed that “It’s not the strongest or most intelligent that survive, but those that adapt to a changing environment most quickly.” Few people appreciate how precisely this describes the world of business but on a hyper-accelerated timescale. Adapt or die! Remember Blackberry?

According to Microsoft, the average corporate worker now loses more than 76 hours a year manually looking for notes and documents. That will no longer be you because you’ll discover the amazing world of non-hierarchical organization management and “tagging”, nothing short of an information management revolution. 

In addition, thanks to this pandemic we all have to be better with our virtual meeting skills. Indeed, in the future, it’s predicted that a surprising 22% of US workdays will be "from home", a 4X increase from pre-pandemic levels. Dave will show you how to take Zoom (/Teams/Webex/…) meetings to a new level using a virtual studio powered by OBS, the Open Broadcast Studio. And you’re going to love the price. It’s free!


We will be hosting a networking happy hour from 5:00 - 6:00 PM immediately following the presentation.
