The Low Tech “To Do” List

By Lisa Harrington - Feb 21 2017


I am a bit of a tech junkie. When the first PDA (personal data assistant) devices came out I jumped right on the bandwagon. I had a smartphone before Apple even made one. However, when it comes to my To-Do list, there is a simple, low tech method I’ve used for almost 30 years and […]

Lead from Within

By Elizabeth Lions - Feb 14 2017


Leadership is every bit an inward process as much as it is an outward process. I’ve been lucky in my career. I’ve had the pleasure to work with some of the best Directors and Vice Presidents in several major technology companies. Listening to what kept them up at night, taught me a lot. What I […]

Time Management: Discovering Your Priorities

By Judy Hoberman - Feb 07 2017

Since the advent of the world wide web, the world is now widely populated with thousands, if not millions, of “journalists.” But where are the ethical journalists?
