Industry Engagement is Key

I recently heard a motivational speaker say, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” I couldn’t agree more and, in that vein, I’ve launched this blog as a repository for my thoughts on why passion and focus underpin my ambitions, goals and excitement about my candidacy for IEEE 2017 President-Elect. I encourage you to engage in my postings here over the coming months and welcome your valued input.

Even though I have developed far-reaching relationships within IEEE on a global scale, I think its also very important that voting IEEE members are well informed on my past experience and my intent as we work together to advance and elevate the organization’s profile worldwide.

A basis to my platform is that we need to understand that IEEE is at a tipping point for future growth. While we are still growing, the rate of growth is not what it has been in recent years. Now is the time to be proactive in charting a course that will further enhance IEEE’s leadership position and ensure the organization remains at the forefront of advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.

One area I believe essential to increase IEEE’s value proposition to its membership is to foster greater industry engagement. By leveraging our leadership position to become an even greater educational and career building resource for industry, we will not only increase membership, we will position IEEE to be more closely tied to rapidly evolving markets. Through my leadership roles in industry, and within IEEE itself, I have gained a good deal of understanding and insight on workforce-related issues, and I have developed a plan for IEEE to become more of a career development partner to industry. A proven model within the organization is mentorship programs, and I would look to expand these and make them more visible and accessible for all. Other areas where we can foster greater engagement are through seminars, tutorials, tailored certificate courses, multi-disciplinary training and educational packages that meet members’ needs for their career progression.

A firm understanding of how IEEE can better engage industry and build more collaborative efforts is of extreme importance to a comprehensive and viable plan – one that can greatly enhance IEEE’s value proposition. In effect, by better organizing, accessing and packaging the resources we already have on hand, and leveraging existing relationships, IEEE can also increase its value to industry as an informative resource on emerging technology sectors and markets.

Another area of focus that is fundamental to IEEE’s ongoing success, and increasing industry engagement, is initiating new and more value-added ways to manage, access and analyze the vast amount of IEEE information available. My platform will focus on developing more collaborative and more insightful ways to offer information to IEEE’s membership and to industry as a whole. By building a thorough and effective data-mining platform that delivers actionable insights to industry and others, IEEE will become an even greater source of trusted information that’s contemporized for application today. This is something that has to be prioritized as we move the organization forward.

Industry engagement is just one of the many areas where I’m bringing my passion and focus to bear as I share my ambitions and goals with you and work to gain your trust and endorsement as IEEE 2017 President-Elect. I will be checking back in to share more fundamentals to my platform next month. In the meantime, if you have any questions or insights to share, please do not hesitate to reach out.

  10. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

  15. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

  23. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.

  24. Excellent article. Keep posting such kind of information on your blog.

    it and in my view recommend to my friends. I am sure they will be benefited from this web site.
