On February 28th, the IE USA Club and IE AI club hosted it’s first tech speaker session. It was an interesting opportunity to meet our guest speaker Joel Curado, a technology Strategist at Cisco and get inspired by his 10 years + experience in this field. Here are some highlights from our event…
Mr. Curado gave the IE community a glimpse of the latest trends in technology as well as how corporations innovate, strategize and engage from an internal and external perspective.
Being an expert in digital transformation, he shared some real experiences from his current position in Cisco Switzerland on how they deal with high tech customers in enabling their digital strategy with their latest software.
Joel also talked about his involvement in new solution creations and strategy in the IoT space for Smart Cities, to create new business models and market strategies, together with startups and accelerators around the world.
After this, we discussed career opportunities with the aim for Joel to educate and connect IE students to this sector by giving them insights on how to position themselves in the field and what skill-sets are valued in the IT sector.
We hope everyone enjoyed the event as much as we did and look forward to seeing you all at our next one!
