Technology Talent from a Serial Entrepreneurs Point-Of-View
October 24, 2017
SIM CGN: Career Growth & Networking Education - October 2017 Monthly Call

Beginning in November 2016, SIM National began holding monthly conference calls to help educate our members on various topics related to networking, job search, and moving your career forward. This program is now known as SIM CGN: Career Growth & Networking Education.  These calls are directed to all our members who wish to learn more about growing their careers and how to better network, and is especially helpful to our members-in-transition.

For the October event, please join us on Tuesday, 10/24 at 12 PM EST for a call led by Bryant McBride entitled “Technology Talent from a Serial Entrepreneurs Point-Of-View


Bryant is a seven-time successful serial entrepreneur. Six of the companies he has started have been technology based. Yet, Bryant is not what you would traditionally call a "Tech Person".


With such a proven track record of being so repeatedly successful, how has Bryant partnered with and then further hired the IT talent he needed (CTOs, CIOs, CISOs, Developers, IT Directors, etc., etc.), to create so many valuable companies based around new technologies? During this unique and casual conference call, Bryant will give us insight into what he looks for when seeking out a solution to a  problem that creates a new business, the technology talent he needs to build that business, and the partners he works with.


I will further add as the moderator/founder of the SIM:CGN calls. I am very excited about having Bryant talk to all of us. I have known Bryant for over 19 years and he is a very close and personal friend. I will guarantee a very no-holds-barred session unlike those you have experienced in the past. It will be fun and informative! - Mitchell Schneider
