Bob Roudebush - Technology for technology’s sake is not the answer. When applied properly, in the right amounts, technology can dramatically improve a company’s ability to provide their product/service, build relationships with customers and simplify day-to-day processes. For over 15 years, I have worked to help companies understand how technology can revolutionize their business without breaking their budgets.
Proven leader with over 15 years of technology marketing, sales, implementation and strategy consulting experience. A high-energy, creative approach to problem solving and a unique understanding of the intersection between what a product and service does and why customers should care. Exceptional leadership abilities, written communication skills and a passion for technical sales and product evangelism. Vast experience in public speaking, including presentations to audiences of all sizes at numerous industry events such as Microsoft TechEd, VMworld and DevConnections.
