Distinguished Speaker Series “More Than I Ever Knew”

Join us as Mr. Adrian Blakey recounts his experiences with software start-ups and large corporations alike, and offers “lessons learned” for current and aspiring entrepreneurs. Adrian Blakey, Chief Solutions Architect, Delta Dental IT Mr. Blakey has enjoyed a long, varied and successful career in software technology. Beginning in the early ‘80s, he worked for several start-ups, large software vendors, his own consulting company, dot coms, and health care IT. Seeking fame and fortune (neither of which, he says, occurred in real abundance), he immigrated to the US after graduating with a degree in physics from a UK university. Since then, he has found his niche as a valuable contributor in this rapidly-evolving industry as a technologist, salesman, developer, consultant, founder, and engineering manager. High points of his journey include being the first employee of a dot com that developed a Pay Pal-like system (ultimately acquired by Amazon), developing a mobile emergency room app, and innovating a cloud storage solution for medical images.
