  • Running Your Business In A Mobile World -- October 18

  • Remember when “business hours” ended at 5pm? Or how about when “I was away from the office” was a perfectly acceptable excuse for not responding to customers? In the 21st century, business is 24/7 and the Westchester County Association knows it...

    ...That’s why the region’s preeminent business membership group has assembled a panel of top technology professionals to outline how business owners can more effectively access their core applications remotely, juggle multiple mobile devices, keep in better contact with customers, all while minimizing technology costs.

    According to a recent survey, 90 percent of small businesses use mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. However, only a handful of businesses use these same devices in ways that can give their companies a strategic advantage. And with technology changing every six months it seems, it’s clear the successful business owner needs to stay tech-savvy.

    To that end, the WCA will present Running Your Business in a Mobile World on Thursday, October 18, 11:30 am to 2 pm at the Doubletree Tarrytown as part of its popular “Lunch & Learn” series. A panel discussion will be moderated by Anton Hios, vice president, Executive Programs, Uptime Institute, and will feature Greg Briggs, technical advisor, Microsoft; Rob Kissner, president, The Digital Arts Experience; John Nunes, chief information officer and partner, Compufit; and James Oliverio, president, Another 9. This Lunch & Learn event is sponsored by Mahopac National Bank and Mercy College and is open to the public, although pre-registration is required.

    The session will begin with networking at 11:30am, followed by a panel discussion over lunch at 12:15 pm. A full 45 minutes has been allotted for detailed responses to participant questions.

    To register for Running Your Business in a Mobile World, click here prior to October 18. For event inquires after October 18, please contact Laura Montopoli at events@westchester.org or 914-948-6444. The cost is $50 per person ($40 per person for WCA members).
