General Session: A Day in the Life of a Nerdy Door Security + Safety Professional

Presented by Beth Ziesenis: Author. Speaker. Nerd.

Thursday, May 11 | 8:30 – 10:00 am
West Ballroom, 300 Level

Technology is all around us. Countless times a day, we depend on gadgets, apps and software which didn’t exist a year or two ago. Between reading this and arriving in Phoenix, thousands more apps will have been created; many of which will be beneficial to you in your business and personal life.

Right now, there are statistically 2.5 smart devices within arm’s reach. From grocery lists to newspapers, personal banking and social media, people today are connected 24/7/365 and, more importantly, employing cutting edge technology to improve operational efficiencies. 

Is your company taking advantage of—or resistant to—new technologies? What are today’s best practices to improve productivity and reduce errors and unnecessary procedures? What technology, hacks and programs are you using today to make your staff, knowledge and products work at the speed of business?  Join your colleagues (and competitors) to get up to date with today’s technology and glimpse what is on the horizon to help propel your industry into the future.

What would your day look like if you took the advice of all your nerdy friends and implemented the tech tools and apps they recommend to make your life easier? This fast-moving, laugh-filled session takes you hour by hour through a day in the life of a tech-savvy door security and safety professional. You’ll learn how a professional nerd solves a security crisis before 10 a.m., learns to make more of a lunch hour with an extra set of virtual hands, saves money on software before the staff meeting and brings the team together online before the day is done.

• Understand how technology fits into every part of your day

• Learn about technology systems that streamline projects and tasks

• Discover dozens of free and bargain apps and online tools that put the ideas from the conference into action!
