Major General (ret'd) Lewis Mackenzie
General MacKenzie Enterprises Inc.
When it comes to being a leader, few people—anywhere in the world—can approach the level of experience and credibility that Major-General (ret'd) Lewis MacKenzie has reached. Considered the most experienced peacekeeper on the planet, MacKenzie distills four decades of experience into ten practical and enduring lessons that will enhance anyone's leadership style.
Dr. Steve Liang
Associate Professor, Department of Geomatics
University of Calgary
Rapid advances in a number of technologies, and the impact of these advances on the availability and applications of software/hardware tools, are driving a fundamental reconsideration of how we innovate and create value. In this talk, Dr. Liang will share his experience and views on the Internet of Things revolution and crowd-sourcing growth. Both topics are significant for applications of the next generation geomatics technology. Dr. Liang presents some projects in sustainable resource development and discusses the small data challenges in the era of big data.
Director, Services for the Americas
The Open Geospatial Consortium
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international industry consortium of 473 companies, government agencies and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available interface standards. In this talk Mr. Taylor will speak to implementing geospatial standards in your business, with a focus on how it improves operations, client communication and business profitability.
President and CEO
It's the universal business challenge: how can I grow my business faster? There are no silver bullets but there are proven strategies that achieve results. Whether you are a small growing business or a unit within a larger established enterprise, how you approach growing your organization and growing your customer base plays a major role in the success of your organization. Jim Roche, President and CEO of Stratford Managers, will speak to this topic, focusing on three main points: amping up the organizations culture, bringing in different perspectives and harvesting untapped assets.
Customer Service Manager
This talk will present the way that technology is being used to explore one of the most important, and least understood places on our earth: the ocean. Mr. Nicholson further discuss how the technology we use to map the oceans is evolving and how data standards are critically important in mapping, charting and enabling data discovery.
This is also your opportunity to meet with TECTERRA and some of our partners to learn how your company can benefit from our full range of programs that support each phase of your geomatics product development and commercialization.
TECTERRA's mandate is to help your geomatics business grow and enable you to bring your technology to market.
