You have seen Social Media grow from a trend with teens to a robust communication tool. What is the next "Big Wave" of technology to affect you and your business? Mobile Apps! Mobile Apps and Smart Phones are changing the way we do business as consumers and enterprise organizations. Look at the rise and fall of GPS units and Flip Cameras as examples of technology that have been replaced by the App and Smart Phone. “From Social Media to Mobile Apps: The Next Big Wave” addresses the trends, changes and the reasons behind the changes that are rippling though our society. Through Apps and Smart Phones we have the information of the world at our finger tips, all the time, anywhere and very quickly. We now do searches “in the moment” as soon as a question can form in our mind. You may not have used your desk top computer while lying in bed but many people have their phones and tablet at their side, all of the time. How can you capitalize on the next “Big Wave” of technology to push through our society? Either learn to “ride the wave” or miss the opportunities bought by the wave. J.R. Atkins will inform, entertain and inspire you to grow and use technology to further your business and organizational goals.
