Of course there are serious problems we are confronting now, and some people and businesses are not doing well. Yet some people and businesses are doing alright, and some are actually thriving.

While luck certainly does play a role, what can we do to maximize the probability of coming out of this better than before? Obviously sitting on the couch, watching TV and lamenting what is happening doesn't help, and saying "take care of yourself, stay healthy" and other platitudes only goes so far.

This talk covers concrete things you can do to weather the pandemic and thrive, both during and afterwards.

Some of us are taking this as an opportunity to reboot ourselves and our careers and come back better than ever. You should too!

Thank you!

Ted Demopoulos

Ted Demopoulos' first significant exposure to computers was in 1977 when he had unlimited access to his high school's PDP-11 and hacked at it incessantly. He consequently almost flunked out but learned he liked playing with computers a lot. His business pursuits began in college and have been continuous ever since. His background includes over 25 years of experience in information security and business, including 20+ years as an independent consultant. Ted helped start a successful information security company, was the CTO at a "textbook failure" of a software startup, and has advised several other businesses. Ted is a frequent speaker at conferences and other events, quoted often by the press. He also has written two books on Social Media, has an ongoing software concern in Austin, Texas in the virtualization space, and is the recipient of a Department of Defense Award of Excellence. In his spare time, he is also a food and wine geek, enjoys flyfishing, and playing with his children.
