University of Phoenix Brings the Power of 'Team' to Cleveland With Free Event Featuring Author Keith Ferrazzi

Author of Never Eat Alone introduces his second book, Who's Got Your Back, outlining a breakthrough program to build deep, trusting business relationships that create success

CLEVELAND, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In a world where business success depends increasingly on working effectively in teams, Keith Ferrazzi's new nine-step program for team-building has never been more important. University of Phoenix, an early innovator in team-based learning, will showcase Ferrazzi's approach in a free event it is sponsoring for the author on September 10, 2009, at Quicken Loans Arena, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Ferrazzi (www.keithferrazzi.com) will showcase the approach he developed in his newest book, Who's Got Your Back. In fact, he will start putting the principles and tactics into practice, right in the room. The seminar is an interactive, transformative experience for sustainable change. In the first part of the 60-minute talk, Ferrazzi will lead participants through a series of exercises to shift their mindsets from isolation to connection.

Ferrazzi will show attendees that becoming a winner in any field of endeavor requires a trusted team of advisors who can offer guidance and help to hold them accountable to achieving their goals. It is the reason Ph.D. candidates have advisor teams, top executives have boards, world-class athletes have fitness coaches, and presidents have cabinets. Whether one's dream is to start their own company, move up the corporate ladder, overcome the self-destructive habits that hold them back, or make a difference in the larger world, Who's Got Your Back will give people the roadmap they've been looking for to achieve the success they deserve.

University of Phoenix, the largest private university in North America, has long recognized the importance of working together in business and in life. University of Phoenix incorporates a Team Learning approach in its academic programs, where students work in small teams, helping each other accomplish shared project goals.

The event is FREE and requires pre-registration, as space is limited. To reserve your seat for the event, please pre-register at http://www.phoenix.edu/colleges_divisions/corporate_education/ferrazzi-tour.html.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
