PowerPoint Presentation: AmeriQuest Symposium Inspires Business Leaders to Embrace New Ways of Thinking (1888 PressRelease) The 2014 AmeriQuest Symposium brought together nearly 300 executives for two days of thought-provoking sessions on innovation, technology, the economy, and more. CHERRY HILL, NJ - The 2014 AmeriQuest Symposium brought together nearly 300 executives from around the country for two days of thought-provoking sessions covering topics including innovation, technology, generational strengths, cybersecurity, and the economy. "This year's Symposium was transformational for attendees, as it brought together a powerful lineup of visionaries to challenge and explore the most pressing topics facing business today", said Kate Freer, AmeriQuest Business Services Vice President of Marketing. The Symposium, which took place in February at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, opened with a keynote address by well-known futurist Jim Carroll, who gave a frank assessment of where technology is taking the world. "Change is happening faster than ever before," he said, noting that successful companies will be those that define themselves by agility and the willingness to change. He was followed on the podium by Theresa Payton, a former White House CIO and respected cybersecurity expert. "Your business is going to get hacked," she bluntly told the audience. "Companies which have a detailed plan in place for dealing with that reality are those which will be the most successful." One of the most well-received presenters was Curt Steinhorst, a 30-year-old communications expert on the topic of intergenerational differences and the misunderstandings that have arisen among the groups of employees known as Traditionalists, Boomers, Gen Xers and Gen Yers. In a humorous way, he described each group and their attributes to show that recognizing and accepting the differences can lead to a more productive workplace. Later in the day, Dr. Martin Regalia, Senior Vice President for Economic and Tax Policy for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, spoke of the positive trajectory of the economy and urged businesses to examine closely their hiring and expansion plans. PowerPoint Presentation: At the end of the first day, Marshall Doney, Senior Executive Vice President and COO of AAA, tackled the issue of connectivity as it applies to the "connected car," which has already begun to exist through the use of GPS, internal diagnostics and Internet connections. "The connected car is actually the logical extension of the smartphone," he said. The second day opened with renowned business advisor Ram Charan, who spoke on the future of business in a global and connected economy. The old business models that companies built upon are gone, he told the audience. He listed things a company must master to be truly digital, including digitization; mobile technology; analytics/algorithms; sensors which allow for machine-to-machine learning: and the use of cloud computing. His session was followed by Brian Cota, Vice President of Sales for Daimler Trucks North America, who spoke about the future of truck technology, including electronic logging devices and engine telematics and other advancements in the works for the transportation industry. Next up was the AmeriQuest Industry Panel, made up of professionals with various perspectives who discussed the transportation issues they are tackling today. It was led by Terry Young, President of Advantage Truck Leasing. The most emotionally riveting speaker at the event closed the morning session. Marcus Luttrell, the author of the best-selling book "Lone Survivor" and the person portrayed in the current hit movie by actor Mark Wahlberg transfixed the audience as he related his youth, wanting to become a Navy SEAL, and the horrific story of the mission he undertook with his team in the mountains of Afghanistan. The 2014 Symposium also marked the first meeting of the Corcentric Users Group, where COR360 accounts payable automation customers gathered to share best practices, challenges, and solutions. Rob DeVincent, Vice President of Product Marketing for Corcentric, presented a product roadmap, including enhancements and release dates, as well as a host of best practices.
