Opening Discussion Topic:
Having the talent you need to operate your business processes and projects continues to be a major issue for many of our members. Additionally, getting and maintaining the level of engagement you need from them – to keep things on track – has recently emerged as another major issue. While we’ve discussed, over the last six months, various approaches for continuing to grow, they all require a talented team that can continuously adapt better approaches for working together, to avoid being disrupted and derailed.
This month, we’ll have a brief presentation of broad research into some additional approaches that can be utilized to better position your firm as an attractive leader for attracting, engaging, and retaining your key talent.
Then, as always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?” – and serve as Strategic Advisory Board Members to ABL’s Malik Arshad, President of Canoga Perkins Corp., as he makes his Featured Presentation.
Malik Arshad is President of Canoga Perkins Corp., which makes innovative and reliable products, helping service providers to build modern, high capacity, reliable, scalable, and adaptive network connectivity solutions, for 5G, 4G, and industrial networks. Malik has been in his current role at Canoga Perkins since August 2019. He joined the company in 2010 as Manager of Field Programmable Gate Arrays until 2014, where he led a technically and geographically diverse team to deliver a “world’s-first” 100-gigabit ethernet network interface device.
Our San Gabriel Valley Technology Round Table meets on the 1st Friday of the month (with the exception of some holidays, like Jan. 1st ). We have been meeting via ZOOM since April, and look forward to meeting again in person – once we can do so safely, hopefully early in the New Year.
"I probably would have to pay 16 consultants to get the kind of great information I get from the Round Tables and the people in my group."
"ABL has been a great pay-off for me and I have found great value. It has brought me help in financing the company, resolving financial issues, and customer problems. And it’s served for personal growth, too."
"The big thing that ABL provides to us is that it’s companies of like interests, as opposed to other types of groups that have CEOs with maybe very divergent interests."
"The best thing for me about ABL are the great people in the Organization. It’s a caring group of people, they are very open in sharing their own problems, and that leads to an environment where you can share your problems back. And they’re non-judgmental. They’ll give you the best advise they can. You can take it or not."
