Shift Happens: MIT Enterprise Forum Event to Focus on Adapting to Changing Market Conditions

Jason Spievak

For any growing company or competitive business leader engaged in today's fast paced world, shift definitely happens. Whether it is changes in market conditions, changes in technology, changes within your own company structure or changes on the competitive business landscape, change is inevitable.

The general public is invited to join the MIT Enterprise Forum from 5 to 8 p.m. this Wednesday at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center, 1118 E. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara, to learn why shift happens, and why it is good for you and your organization to adapt to change and find a strategic advantage in doing so.

This presentation is the first in a series that will focus on the topic of change and how local, successful technology companies have experienced the challenges of change, embraced it head on and shifted their company structure and business strategies to capitalize on the opportunities which change create.

The keynote speaker for the event will be Jason Spievak from INVOCA, and a panel of experts including Mike Pugh from j2 Global, Albert Oaten from Secure Docs and Bryan Coryat from Local Market Launch will round out the presentation.

The program will be moderated by Michael Holliday of DMHA Architecture + Interior Design.

The cost is $30 for general (online pre-registration only) or $40 at the door, and $15 for students. Parking is $6. Registration includes appetizers and refreshments.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
