It’s always great to learn that someone is actually reading these blog posts. In the case of my friend, Ari Ioannides, the President of Emerald Data Solutions, the blog was more than simply read. After coming across my posting on Three Ways to Escape A Cul-de-sac, Ari invited me to speak on these ideas at the 2015 eGovLIVE! Conference held just outside of Chicago, IL in early September 2015.
The following video is my 35-minute keynote address that not only references my posting on the creative Cul-de-sac but also incorporates ideas articulated in my July blog post on What It Takes to be successful as a composer.
