Keynote Speakers Announced for Boomer Technology Circles and Talent Development Advantage

Rebecca Ryan, Founder, Next Generation Consulting, Inc., and Rick Richardson, managing partner of Richardson Media & Technologies LLC, will be the keynote speakers at the 2013 Boomer Technology Circles Summit and Talent Development Advantage August 1920, 2013, at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Due to the growing importance of aligning firm management, technology, and talent, the Boomer Technology Circles Summit and Talent Development Advantage will be a joint conference.

Ryan will provide attendees insight about the future workforce, next-generation technologies, trending social and workplace norms, family configurations, and more to help attendees shape (or reshape) a firm that's future ready. Attendees will also learn how to think like a futurist, so you and your firm are not caught flat-footed.
 
Ryan is a human spark plug. She's one part economist, one part futurist, and one part humorist (that's right  economists can be funny). Ryan inspires audiences to think differently about the future . . . their future. Author of Live First, Work Second and ReGENERATION, she's earning accolades as "a voice for the next generation."
 
Richardson will provide attendees with his vision of both the short-term and longer-term future for technology, including technologies important to the accounting profession. Topics will include a review of prior-year predictions, what major-market companies are doing, and how their actions will affect the industry. He will also discuss current trends in hardware, software, and communications as well as emerging technologies that will bring those trends into reality. Richardson will highlight how technology is impacting training and learning and will conclude his presentation with his personal forecasts on our technology future.
 
Richardson has been a technology futurist to CPAs for over thirty years. Prior to forming his multimedia and strategic technology consulting company, he had a twenty-eight-year career in technology with
