At some organizations, the morning chatter in the hallways is about a big game from the previous night or the most recent episode of a popular TV show. But at Atrion, the latest technology trends are usually the chosen topic of conversation.

And as an organization devoted to providing the ultimate client experience, we are committed to passing those conversations on from our hallways directly to you. With that in mind, here are a few thoughts recently expressed by some of our subject matter experts:

**This ongoing series profiles female powerhouses who are making their mark in their leadership roles. In the spirit of paying it forward, each profiled women is asked to nominate another peer to fuel the series.**

Prior to meeting her, I had heard great things about Theresa Moore, who came referred to me from a fellow Women in Leadership nominee Maeve Donahue. “You are just going to love Theresa!,” Maeve promised. And she was right.

There is something refreshingly authentic and grounded about Theresa, while being balanced with an insatiable zeal for life, work, passion and adventure. Theresa tells me about her plans to “own the 95 corridor from Boston to DC” through her work at her company T-Time Productions. And I have no doubt this woman will continue to make considerable impact through her media production company.

What follows is a glimpse into our conversation about giving voice to your story, being an advocate for others and learning from your mistakes…

A Busy Fall for the Atrion Academy…

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” ― Socrates

Here at Atrion, we are committed to the notion of lifelong learning and continuous improvement. We search for fresh frameworks and methodologies that will challenge our existing processes (e.g. The 4 Disciplines of Execution and LEAN); we canvass business-centered best-sellers that we can bring into our organization to evolve our thinking (e.g. Jim Collins’ “Good to Great”); and we stretch our minds in pursuit of educational opportunities that we can bring to our clients, prospects, employees, partners and the great community.

The creation of the Atrion Academy is perhaps the strongest validator of our commitment to learning.

Take Two: Atrion Gearing Up for the Second Annual AlwaysOn Technology Symposium

 

aos_technology_2016

 

Here at Atrion, we are fueled by a commitment to ensure that today’s IT leaders—from the CIO to the CTO to the IT practitioner—remain relevant and influential within their organizations. And we believe a chief way to do that is to ensure that IT is at the forefront in controlling and driving the innovation that happens in the business.

In fact, last year we introduced the AlwaysOn Technology Symposium, a one-day event centered upon equipping IT leaders with the visions, insights, perspectives and strategies to help emerge as strategic business assets for their organizations. The inaugural event was a massive success. We assembled over 150 of our clients, partners, employees and community members for a day dedicated to teaching attendees about existing and imminent technology trends that they could take back to their business.

Embracing Personal, Professional and Technological Change

“Don’t be afraid to change.  You may lose something good but you may gain something better.” – Anonymous 

There is so much truth in this quote. Whether it be in your personal or professional life, being afraid of change causes you to miss out on great opportunities. Recently I experienced a reinforcement of how imperative it is to embrace change. Ever since I was a little girl I always had an eye for the arts and design. I was always fascinated with how a doodle could be turned into a magazine cover or a billboard.  (more…)

**This ongoing series profiles female powerhouses who are making their mark in their leadership roles. In the spirit of paying it forward, each profiled women is asked to nominate another peer to fuel the series.**

I had the pleasure of heading to downtown Providence the other week to meet with Jamie Scurry, Roger Williams University’s Dean of the School of Continuing Studies. I spent an incredible 45 minutes with this education luminary—picking her brain about her day-to-day responsibilities, thoughts on female leadership and advice she has for the next generation. But it was something that Jamie said at the end of the meeting that really stuck out to me.

“I really enjoyed sharing space with you today,” she said.

What an incredible poetic way of describing exactly how I felt about her—inspired and nourished by being in the presence of someone who was equally appreciative of rich, meaningful, personal dialogue.

What follows is a glimpse into our conversation…
