Introduction to Discovery Driven Entrepreneurship

Startups and innovation initiatives are not a smaller version of an established company. Established companies execute on a known business model within a known market and have history as a guide. Fundamentally, startups and innovative entrepreneurs are dealing with the unknown. They don’t ‘know’ their market and may even be evolving their solution. They certainly have no history on which to base the predictions necessary for a ‘business plan’. It is time to look to a 21st century mindset and tools built on discovery driven entrepreneurship.

Internet of Things - What You Need to Know

The Internet of Things (IoT) age is upon us and with it the biggest disruption in technology, society and economy since the printing press. It will touch us all irrespective of our sphere of endeavour or way of life. It’s poised to deliver great benefits, but with it also cautionary side effects.

So what does IoT mean to you, and for you?

You have no doubt heard of IoT, but what is it – really? How can you take advantage of it? What do you need to know and do to capture its benefits for yourself and others? And, what are those side effects, and how do you mitigate.

The workshop will answer these questions, whether you are new to IoT or need to close gaps in your understanding to see it’s full breadth. Learning about IoT is important if you are

  • In a business or organization pursuing efficiency improvements,
  • Policy analyst seeking to balance public benefit against side effects from new technologies,
  • Entrepreneur or product leader hunting for new investment or revenue opportunities,
  • Social entrepreneur or activist looking to elevate social good or minimize social disruption from new technologies.

VO Executive Seminar Series: Turning your Strategic Plan into Operational Objectives

The Volunteer Ottawa Executive Seminar Series is designed exclusively for senior leaders of Ottawa-based non-profit organizations and charities. Come network with your peers and learn from thought leaders in the non-profit sector, what you need to know to keep your organization ahead of the curve in these changing times.

Each year senior management and the board of directors spends many hours setting out the future direction and priorities for their organization in a strategic plan. All too often this is considered a job well done that sets the bar and can be put into the quarterly and annual reports; however, for a truly effective organization this is just the beginning.

The next task is to translate the strategic plan into a concrete set of measurable operational objectives. An organization that can effectively measure progress toward its objectives will be able to adjust its course of action to meet targets and support the success that was so very carefully planned. This seminar will provide guidance and tools to effectively translate your strategic plan into operational objectives.

In this seminar, we will discuss how to:

  • Create an effective dashboard
  • Uncover some of the critical failures to obtaining your objectives
  • Understand three factors critical to helping your organization reach its objectives

Cyber Security 2017: Securing the Smart City of the Future

Cities. They are the engines of the Canadian economy as well as the place that the majority of Canadians call home. And they’re continuing to grow: according to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) City Science Initiative, cities will soon account for 90% of global population growth, 80% of wealth creation, and 60% of total energy consumption.

As Cities in Canada and around the world continue to evolve, many municipalities are looking towards a future of Smart technologies, with the goal of improving efficiency, accountability and public services. By 2030, two thirds of the world’s populations will live in Smart-enabled mega-cities.

Cyber Security 2017 will take on these questions and many others, with the goal of creating a shared vision for the Smart City that is secure, sustainable and entrepreneurial—a city that protects not just its infrastructure, but also its people, its economy, and its future.

Successfully Navigating your Career Transition(s)

Many of us have been told we were our organization’s “greatest asset”, only to then be laid off. Others have spent countless hours firing off job applications we saw on job boards, only to get little or no response. And of course, too many people find themselves trapped in unfulfilling roles without a clear path to something more meaningful and challenging.  

Navigating career transition successfully is something most of us never think of, until it’s staring us in the face. We get laid off, want to change jobs or go into a different field, and only then do we start to realize that it is harder than it looks to be.  

Tim Ragan of Career Constructors will present you with a dramatically better way to manage your transition successfully – one that builds your confidence, knowledge, personalnetwork, and ultimately leads you to your perfect job. After his presentation, Tim will lead us in a fun round of speed networking and show us how to put his method to work.

Open Data and the Data Revolution: Challenges and Opportunities for Global Research

Research and data collection activities are increasingly globalised, but there remain major challenges in the availability of quality, usable data. Although ‘big data’ poses challenges, just as significant are those posed by ‘small data’ and ‘no data’ as Christine Borgman has put it. Simon will speak about a number of international initiatives of CODATA and the International Council of Science to address issues relating to research data which are global in scope.

These include the Science International Accord on Open Data in a Big Data World and a related initiative to encourage a coordinated approach to mobilise African research data capacity. He will also speak about the activities of CODATA in the fields of research data policy, sustainability of data infrastructure, national and institutional data strategies as well as issues of data standards and essential data skills.
