    Speaker Backgrounds:

    Laura Kubisiak serves as the Venture Catalyst for Washington County. She is an “on the ground” resource for helping traded-sector companies start-up and scale-up. She meets one-on-one with entrepreneurs, assesses their business needs, and then connects them to people, programs and financial capital to help fuel their growth. Laura also leads programming to educate entrepreneurs and give them an opportunity to network with others in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Prior to this role, Laura served as a senior executive in marketing, sales and business development at companies ranging from start-up to Fortune 500.

    Ana Chaud started her career as a financial and business manager in the San Francisco Bay Area. In January 2014, Ana co-founded Garden Bar, the first fast casual, salad concept restaurant in the NW. In five years, Garden Bar grew ~600% in revenue and expanded from 9 to 120 employees. In 2019, Garden Bar was acquired by Evergreens, which provided Ana with a full circle experience – from concept to exit. Ana recently joined the Board at TiE Oregon and will share her insights on being an entrepreneur, as well as investing in new ventures through TiE Angels and Elevate Capital.

    **Choosing the Right Cloud Environment**

    Online Webinar

    RSVP: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/2731951442299603715?source=Morgan

    In pursuit of enhanced connectivity, scalability, and efficiency, cloud migration is hastening across all industry sectors. In order to unlock the cloud’s benefits, these environments – public, private, and hybrid – must be explicitly architected and engineered to suit the respective applications they will host, while also meeting security and compliance requirements.

    How do businesses determine their ideal cloud environment and optimize it post-migration?

    In this presentation, we will review and compare: - The physical and virtual components of public, private, and hybrid cloud environments; - The business considerations that differentiate each environment, including storage space, workloads, compliance, internal staff, and other business requirements; - The relationship between organizations, cloud providers, and MSPs; - The best practices organizations should consider keeping their cloud environment secure, compliant, and optimized post-migration.

    Presenter: Scott Harvey VP of Operations & Engineering, Atmosera

The workshop defines and clarifies the roles of leaders, first-line managers, middle managers, and executives using materials drawn from over a decade of Agile and Lean adoption experience covering tens of thousands of people within Fortune 100 companies.

    Agile Finance for Agile IT: How trends in IT pose challenges to traditional acquisition models and accounting methods and what to do about it

    Thursday August 25, 2016 10:00am PST

    Recent trends in IT like mobile and cloud computing, and Internet of Things, are creating pressure on IT organizations to respond to the demands of the business in ever shrinking planning and implementation cycles. In the era of agile IT, the infrastructure is only as nimble as the least agile component and that typically is the network. The challenge of creating agile systems on legacy networks is compounded by the constraints of legacy acquisition models and accounting methods which force IT to estimate the future needs of the business in 3 to 5 year intervals. Finance should be an enabler to creating agile IT systems that deliver the most value to the organization by ensuring the network’s capability matches the immediate needs of the business without network resources sitting idle or being overly constrained due to poor planning. Please join us for a webinar hosted by Greg Buchanan, Sr. Manager in Brocade’s office of the CFO; and David Aden, Territory Manager for Oregon and SW Washington at Brocade, to discuss how businesses can better equip Finance to help IT meet the demands of the New IP.

    About Managing Professional Services Firms

    Online Webinar

    WHAT YOU'LL LEARN - The three types of Professional Services firm and the management at each - The emphasis that clients and employees put on values and culture - Using your influence, passion, and vision to lead the organization We will also have a live thirty-minute Q&A period after the presentation.

    This webinar series is a world-first: a dedicated professional services manager course with a dedicated focus on management—this exclusivity of focus is designed to strip away the redundant training that comes with other options, such as the MBA: - Eight 90 minute webinars covering the fundamentals of professional services management - Topics include areas such as estimates, engagement scheduling and KPIs - Available to watch online on all internet web browsers

    About Kayne McGladrey I have always had the good fortune of not being the smartest person in the room. Much of my understanding of professional services management has come from mentoring by the vice presidents and senior partners I had worked with over the years. I am fortunate to be currently working with one of the three most influential mentors in my career. However, many of the hundreds of consultants and former professional services managers I have spoken with have identified a lack of available training to manage a professional services organization. I believe that the only way to demonstrate mastery of a skill is to teach someone else. I regularly write about my experience managing a worldwide professional services organization.
