Overcoming Overwhelmed for IT Professionals in Healthcare: How to succeed in spite of those blasted robots, pending job obsolescence, wicked-fast AI, and other threats 

Healthcare IT professionals today often feel overwhelmed with the fast pace of change, threats from robotics, the chances of your job being obsolete, and AI that is getting better all the time. How can you cope with this and overcome being overwhelmed with it all? Help is on the way as we look at what is happening with technology and how you can embrace a time honored way of thinking to overcome overwhelmed. Not just some fluff, you'll get practical, real-world ideas that can help you succeed no matter what happens. 

 

We've invited a seasoned professional to come and share his ideas that can help. He is Hall of Fame Speaker Terry Brock, who was Skype's Chief Enterprise Blogger and now Ace Hardware's Chief Retail Advisor for Global Solutions. Terry will share what is going on (yes, he feels your pain!) and how other professionals are overcoming overwhelmed in practical, real-world ways. If you've ever been concerned about too much to do, "can't keep up with it all" sickness, this is a session you can’t afford to miss. Bring your questions and get ready to see some light at the end of the tunnel. You’ll be glad you came and participated.
