What Not to Miss at NY Tech Summit 2015


When I attend a conference, I always review the agenda to look at what would interest me. I look at the sessions, round tables, speakers, or workshops that would benefit me. I wanted to point out a few sessions at the 2015 NY Tech Summit that I am excited to attend.

Thursday June 4th – 11:45 - 12:30 p.m., “The Epiphany of Effective Leadership”, by Eric Caballero, from Byrne Dairy.

I had the pleasure of hearing Eric speak at last year’s Tech Summit. I was very impressed with his presentation skills and found that I shared a lot of similar management philosophies. I was very excited to hear that he will be presenting again this year. I think this session will be worthwhile for any person in a leadership positon to attend. 

Eric will be presenting on a trend that I’ve experienced within the IT industry: the importance of soft skills within IT and how these skills align with business strategies. This definitely will be an informative and valuable session.

Eric will be presenting again on Friday, June 5th at 9:30 a.m. on, “The Problem is You.” Another session I’d recommend. 

Here are a few more sessions that have caught my eye:

I’ll be facilitating a networking roundtable on Friday at 11:30 a.m. on, “Proper Use of Managed Services.”  We will be discussing optimal use cases of managed services firms and the value add they can bring into any organization. I am looking forward to hearing feedback from what others are doing in their organizations and where to “draw the line” on internal resources vs. external resources.

Finally, I frequently find that networking with like-minded peers is really a priceless aspect of any IT conference. Hearing others’ success stories, their challenges, and learning from my peers is worth the admission price.



We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
