Thank you to everyone who joined us – past attendees, friends and all those who are new to UP!
Ankit Fadia took the stage first for a fast 20 minutes on the many risks of using the Internet. He had the audience on the edge of our seats as he demonstrated again and again just how easy it is to access “secure” information on the web, on your computer and on just about any device connected to the Internet. Anything from your saved passwords to emails and the images being recorded by your webcam can be uncovered in seconds.
As Fadia said, if everyone understood the dangers of the Internet it would be a safer place. Thanks to him I think we can all say we’ve increased our knowledge. And, for details on his recommended security solutions and practices, you can download an additional presentation at www.ankitfadia.in/solutions.pptx
The evening’s second speaker was Mathew Knowles. Most recognized as the father of Beyonce, Knowles shared his own incredible rise to success and some of the tips and advice that have helped him along the way. The entrepreneurial spirit he learned from his father while growing up in rural Alabama has been a driving force in a career that has taken him from his childhood through several very successful sales jobs and into the music industry.
He discussed several keys to his success, including taking the right risks, always having a high “talk-to-do” ratio and thinking outside the box. Visit CultureMap for more details on Knowles’ talk, we couldn’t say it better ourselves!
