Increase Your TQ - Technology Quotient
As a professional speaker, I've met thousands of business executives every year since 2009. There are exceptions, but the vast majority of these men and women grew up in a world before technology was pervasive. While they were heads-down building their businesses, they missed the tech revolution that is now upon us.
Today, every business is a technology business even when you don't deliver a technological product or service to your end customer. If you and your team are not harnessing technology effectively, you're risking being disrupted by someone who does.
As such, it's time to increase your entire team's TQ, technology quotient, becoming more comfortable and proficient with not just today's technology, but tomorrow's.
Unlike many other professional speakers, I do not sell technology. I'm not "rep-ing" a product or service. Instead, I seek to educate, often about tools that you already own (e.g., smartphones).
Everything I talk about I talk about because I love it. You won't necessarily love every idea I share, but you'll find so many immediately actionable takeaways that your business will be stronger tomorrow.
If you want your business to be successful in the future, your team will have to be more analytical, with better digital skills.
However, this is not a once-and-done activity. Instead, we must all become continuous learners. Get started by inviting me to spend a morning or afternoon with your team. They'll come away with new energy for engaging with and applying technology. In short, higher TQ!
