Recently I posted a call for new bloggers here at PublicSpeakingforGeeks.com. Hilari Weinstein was the first to answer the call. I am very pleased to announce I have a second
victim blogger for the site.
Michael Keen is our newest blogger.
Michael Keen is the Director and Senior Solutions Architect in the Enterprise Architecture group at Alliance Technologies in Des Moines, Iowa. He is an innovative, results-oriented architect and executive with over a ten years of experience using technology to reach business objectives and eliminate barriers to business growth.
Before his career in IT, Michael was a professional alpine climber. He spent over seven years in the highest peaks of the world and was the deputy expedition leader for an expedition to the South Face of Annapurna in 1999. He has learned what it takes to prepare oneself for large challenges and has taken those experiences and translated them into his successful career in IT.
Today, Michael spends most his time speaking in front of C-level executives and other business groups around the U.S. on the how to integrate IT and business. He brings his experience in strategy and execution from alpine climbing to the world of strategic IT automation and execution using dynamic IT concepts and the Citrix Delivery Center products.
I am very pleased that Michael is joining the team here at PublicSpeakingforGeeks.com. Michael has a wide variety of experience in technology and blogs a great deal about the lessons he learns each day in the field. The technology experience and his extensive moutain climbing background make Michael a very interesting person to know.
I am looking forward to seeing Michael’s cotnributions to the site.
