In this virtual meeting, we’re going to have multiple guest speakers throughout Southern California join to share their teams’ thoughts & experiences.

Session 1 - The current state of IT staffing and hiring in a Covid-19 pandemic.
Diane "Di" Krehbiel, CEO, DKKD Staffing

- What jobs are most in demand?
- Are more businesses allowing employees to work from home?

Session 2 - The New Normal: IT Strategies Rising From The Pandemic
Kelly Sullivan, Senior Vice President & Lael Hester, Solutions Architect, Cyxtera

The Covid-19 effect on business has been massive. While many firms have seen substantial drops in revenue, technology companies have experienced growth in demand.

Adapting to these changes has created a “new normal” encompassing changes in operations, increased reliance on the connectivity, more remote work, and staying at the forefront of technology. In this interactive session, we will explore:

- Factors to consider when migrating IT infrastructure away from on-prem as companies reduce their office space
- Connectivity strategies to deploy as demands on bandwidth expand
- Methods of keeping your IT staff safe and engaged in a new distributed workplace model

Agenda:
- Opening Statement from The President
- News Round-up (Data Center World 2020 Highlights)

- Guest Speaker Session 2 (Kelly Sullivan, SVP & Lael Hester, Solutions Architect, Cyxtera)
