FALL 2007 CURRICULUM SKETCH

The ISPCON Fall event will center on what's ahead and the transition to new opportunities. Emerging trends, technologies and success stories of those who are currently making or made a transition to new models, services and the next phase of business growth in the industry will be top of mind. Some will be a new spin on a bread-and-butter solution, some will find it hard to connect today's model to tomorrow's. Either way, selected faculty will unearth a vast array of ideas and challenge the thinking of every attendee to grasp the Internet and web services of tomorrow's successful businesses.

The overwhelming majority of selected sessions will include the hottest trends, technologies, strategies and case studies showing how the best and brightest are most successful in their given expertise.

Speakers and panelists will have real-world experience, operating knowledge and an open approach to sharing their process and results including the who, how and why - a.k.a. "show me the P&L" in every possible instance.
