09:40-10:30 Change your Words, Change the World – talk by Lawrie Golding
About the talk:
Technology is a rapidly moving beast. And the pressure to move forward, fast, is right there, always. It’s part of our culture, from the advertisements to the neatest, newest, coolest phones and iPad, to the new TV you should have. And then there are those of us in the nonprofit technology community who are constantly on the bleeding edge of the next thing, whether it be hardware, software, or web services, are constantly talking about it, and how it’s going to make it easier/better/faster to change the world.
- How do we address these changes?
- How do we stay relevant in this aggressively developing world?
- How do we cope with all the demands we are facing and still maintain a positive attitude?
“Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.” – Norman Vincent Peale
