Hi-Tech, Small Team, Big Results

Hi-Tech, Small Team, Big Results

With ITPalooza just 8 days away, I want to take a moment to thank the team that’s putting this year’s event together.  This year we changed the name from Organizing Committee to Team 2014 which really reflects the enterprise as a whole – it’s a team.

I would like to note that technology has made it possible for a small team of people to deliver an enormous amount of productivity in short space of time, something which even a few years ago would not have been possible.

The ITPalooza website continues to evolve year-on-year with improved user experience and behind the scenes management tools – If you haven’t visited the site in while, I invite you to click around and view the list of speaking talent that will present this years sessions.
