Join us for "How to Lead IT Experts without Being an Expert in Tech" with Jennifer Naughton, Co-Founder and CEO of Radiant Resources and Mayor of the Borough of Spring Lake, NJ.

Can you build a thriving tech business if you don't have the technical skill set needed to make your vision a reality? Jennifer Naughton, Co-Founder and CEO of Radiant Resources, has done just that - successfully scaling her company into profitability. She will share the key choices she made, obstacles she faced, and how she became a role model for entrepreneurial women everywhere.

Careers in technology are as varied as the people who pursue them and one of the most satisfying can be running your own IT organization. Many talented women are reluctant to consider starting a technology business if they don’t personally have all of the expertise to build hardware, software, algorithms or platforms. Not so, according to Jennifer Naughton, President and CEO of Radiant Resources. If you understand how technology can improve business performance and you can communicate that value, you are well on your way to building the foundation of a successful IT company
