Building a Technology Staffing Firm of Enduring Value: What it Takes   

(additional registration required)

Co- Presenters

  • John Larson - Consultant, TechServe Alliance M&A Marketplace 
  • Steve Norris - Consultant, TechServe Alliance M&A Marketplace

While many owners of technology staffing and solutions firms have built businesses that provide them with good, and in some cases great incomes, they have not taken the necessary steps to build a company of enduring value.  For those management teams that want to truly build a firm of extraordinary value that will be highly sought after by future acquirers, what does it take? Spoiler Alert: It is not easy and requires investment!    

This interactive workshop will do a deep dive into what is necessary to build significant enterprise value.  Delivered by industry veterans with a track record of success and drawing upon insights gleaned from the TechServe Alliance M&A Marketplace Program, this workshop will explore what is necessary to achieve a high value exit.     

Topics to include:   

  • Accelerating growth and scaling revenue   
  • Client diversification 
  • Driving above average gross margins & profitability   
  • Investing in a leadership team   
  • Creating a remarkable company culture   
  • Differentiation in a crowded marketplace 

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Workshop on Diversity Management - (Limited spots available)

What Every Technology Leader Should Know About Diversity Management

Presenter: James O. Rodgers - Founder & CEO, The Diversity Coach  

Whatever you thought you knew about diversity management and inclusion, be prepared to think again. Diversity management pioneer, Dr. James Rodgers, has an intention to “promote the commercial value of diversity and apply it to every member of a team.” 

Participants will be invited to learn that:

  1. Diversity leaders must first be leaders.
  2. Identity is not a competence
  3. Dispassion, logic, and relationships are keys to success.
  4. It’s important to define terms and keep it simple.
  5. Diversity management is a relationship and performance discipline.
  6. We need a unified purpose, principle, definition, and intention for diversity management.
  7. Who should lead DEI? Not who you think.

Much of the accepted dogma of D&I is not effective nor is it sustainable. Based on thirty years of observation as well recent empirical research, Dr. Rodgers will invite you to rethink the intent, the approach, and the attitudes about D&I so that it benefits everyone and produces tangible commercial value. This will be a facilitated learning session rather than instruction.

Stories are the most invisibly powerful tools you already own.
