Deep Impact: The Profound Effect Technology is having on you at Work, At Home and at School

Steve dives headfirst into the changes social media and technological advances are having on all aspects of our society.

 

Understanding these changes is critical to managers, team leaders, executives, teachers and parents:
• How to harness the power of the crowd
• Personal branding, navigating the dangers and pitfalls
• Online responsibility
• Generational issues
• Outsourcing, ethics, the advantages, the disadvantages

 

Technology has created a profound shift in how different generations think, act and work.

 

Steve will be entertaining, thought provoking and open the audience’s eyes to these differences. Along the way he cuts through the misconceptions and generational bias, to what is really important: how we take personal responsibility for our enterprise, our life, our brand and our family online.

Taking Control of your Tech

The promise of technology creates a siren song, luring us to engage in something new, something better. Were it only true! In fact deciding what technology not to embrace may be more important in the long run than choosing which tools you actually use.

 

The danger of all technology is we only learn enough, actually use enough to get by, never becoming “masters of our tech?” Instead we become “slaves to tech.”

 

Steve Dotto will take you on a journey of discovery, discussing how we can better evaluate everything from social media to the latest hardware, and how we can, and should gain control our own lives, through control of our tech.

 

A significant part of this presentation includes looking at some of the tools and tech in your industry or market. Steve works with each client to assure that your audience leaves with a greater understanding of what tech can help them, as well as marching orders to assure they use it effectively.

Vertical Markets

Steve harnesses his background of embracing the impact of technological change and designs a framework for a variety of vertical talks.

 

Recent groups have included:
• Real Estate
• Accounting (Both CGA and CA)
• Mortgage Brokers
• Financial Planners

 

Steve explores the deviations and opportunities that occur as a result of change wrought by technology. He also looks at the latest tools, gadgets and resources for your industry.

Educational Technology

“A talk every educator and administrator in the world should hear.”

 

Steve delves into the word of technology and education in this honest, hard-hitting examination of how technology impacts teachers, students and parents. He discusses the new rules and responsibilities thrust upon us due to massive change.

 

Focusing on social networking, and where this new phenomenon fits in our education system, Dotto probes a variety of important questions:
• Should teachers be involved?
• How do they protect themselves?
• What are the risks and rewards?

 

Steve’s presentation is thought provoking, challenging and sure to make a difference.

Cyber Safe

Steve delivers a wakeup call to everyone in the audience. The emergence of Web 2.0 and collaborative computing has changed the world. The youth, the working age and those still at home are increasingly at risk. Unfortunately, it is a unique risk they are not equipped to deal with, and those who should be protecting them from the risks are often oblivious to it.

 

In Cyber Safe Steve will outline the risks of social networking and Web 2.0, putting them into perspective and giving you the tools you need to come to terms with both dangers and inherent responsibilities.

 

This talk might be the best gift you can give your customers and employees. Without fail, the response of our audience is shock, concern and determination to take on the responsibility of our generation, namely protecting our youth in cyberspace.
