I am an experienced and energetic public speaker. I have presented at conferences sponsored by organizations such as the Association for Strategic Planning, the
Society for Computer Simulations (SCS), the Institute for Electrical and Electronic
Engineers (IEEE), and the Security and Risk Management Association (SARMA).
I have participated in panels and conducted conference workshops for the National Science Foundation, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), MIT's Chief Data Officer and Information Quality, Net Markets Ground Zero, Society for Applied Learning Technology (SALT), and TechLearn. I have lectured on decision support to executives at Boston University Symposia, Computer Science Corporation’s Leading Edge Forum, Defense Acquisition University (DAU), IBM’s Information Governance Council, the Boston Knowledge Management Forum, and the Boston Chapter for the Association for Strategic Planning (ASP). I've also taught students as a teaching assistant in Physics at the University of Illinois (Urbana), an instructor in Philosophy as the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis), and a guest lecturer at Suffolk University’s Sawyer Business School.
I currently focus on the topics of critical decision-making, tools and methods for decision support, and solutions for specific types of decisions. Examples include competitive drug marketing strategy, disruptive growth, enterprise risk management, counter-terrorism (risk-based resource allocation), enabling organizational change, and knowledge management strategy.
