  • Tackling Accountability in Asia

    by Sam Pfeifle on July 17, 2018

    Many of us probably use the term often in our personal and professional lives: accountability. Who doesn’t value accountability? In my travels, I have found that Asian cultures, specifically, incorporate accountability into ideas of honor and responsibility.

    by Sandra Toms on July 10, 2018

    Each year, the Conference team pulls together music to play during keynote “walk-in” and “walk-out.” The team even has a discussion based on science around what is the best music for when someone walks into the keynote room and takes a chair vs. when you want to encourage the audience to leave the room.

    by Tony Kontzer on June 28, 2018

    Given the sensitive nature of healthcare information, and the fact that we have an overarching regulation, HIPAA, that dictates how that data is handled, it would seem safe to assume that cyber security has been established as an ongoing top priority.
