He is widely recognized for his experience in helping shape the high-tech industry and has served on the executive councils of most major computer vendors including Intel, Microsoft, Apple and IBM.

Jim will be happy to answer your questions during Q&A. You are welcome to send your questions in advance of the event to Arlene
Jim will be happy to meet people, time permitting, during the networking portions of our event.
He will also have limited time to meet one-on-one with a few selected companies. These meetings will be with companies that can benefit most from his experience - companies that intend to use channels, whether brick and mortar or e-tailing, to reach customers. They should have a product on the market or be close to bringing the product to market, and should have the resources to embark on a channel program. If this fits your current situation, please send your requests before 5PM Tuesday, June 25th, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
