Smart Governance

Hey North America!

We’ll be touring North America until December 11th, visiting Toronto, Washington DC and Chicago.

We have a lot of new stuff to share and after our meetings in Toronto and DC, we’ll be heading to SharePoint Fest Chicago.

If you’re in Toronto or Washington, DC, and want to improve your Organization’s corporate governance, compliance, hierarchical decision-making processes while attaining a new level of agility, reach out (click here) – we’d love to meet 🙂

Smart Governance

Visiting London, UK to present at Future EdTech

Next week we’ll be in London, from June 1st to the 4th to present at Future EdTech, an event for Higher Education Institutions.

Our session is on Jun 2nd 17:05, on the Future EdTech Business Incubator track and is titled: “How to achieve lean-decision making with Smart Governance?”

Universities struggle with many challenges, but the biggest is the rising non-traditional competition.

You’re doing your best but the established organization and its governance do not feel agile enough to keep up with the demand – the worst experience comes when something is proposed for decision, the time that process takes to complete and finally action can be pursued.

Your ideas feel trapped and entangled in the hierarchy and you just know that the amount of resources committed to this jungle of successive ranks, committees, councils and boards must come with a forbidden cost and resource consumption that could be being used in unleashing your collective potential.

The hope of doing something about this and changing this reality is the discussion we wish to engage on. The hope of you doing something about this, breaking free from the status quo and unleashing your potential, is the brainstorm we want to develop with you.

Last century governance practices are shackles and together we can change that.

Come to our session where we will share on how we believe this evolution can start.

Want to learn more about Smart Governance? We still have free slots for meetings on June 1st and 4th, so reach out to us 🙂

We’re looking forward to landing in the UK again 🙂

Enabling a Smart City through Smart Governance

More than ever, competitiveness is of utmost importance for Cities. It is the difference between attracting the right ingredients for an healthy population, thriving economy, or loosing these.

A City must be agile, fast to act, deliver swift reaction when required, sharp and engaging.
A City must be the pulsating living organism that attracts all good that life has to offer to its citizens, a beacon of prosperity and security.

A City must be the living symbol of the potential that each of its citizens can unleash.

Fact is, if you’re lagging on decision making, if you’re not delivering decisions when they’re needed – when you finally do, your actions towards execution will come when it’s too late… and while you keep adding each one of those laggard decisions with their faltering executions happening when relevance is degrading, nothing hurts more the economy of a place than the passage of inconsequent time. While others are going at it and getting to the best piece of the pie.

Ultimately the faster your decision making processes, the better your adaptability ratio is, and hence competitiveness.

So why Smart Governance?

You may throw as much money and resources at it as you wish… if you’re slow deciding, when you finally act the bandwagon has already passed.


Smart City Expo World Congress 2014, Barcelona, Spain

Next week we’ll be re-visiting Barcelona for the Smart City Expo – the key meeting point for experts and leaders of the world’s most innovative cities, companies, research centres, universities and international organisations. 🙂

We’ll be on the Microsoft booth, right in the middle of the exposition area. It’ll be a good opportunity to be with friends again and meet a lot of new people and learn and contribute from and to their experiences.

Our contribution to the event will be on Smart Governance, with Board Meeting Enterprise.

We look forward to connecting with you there 🙂


Visiting Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: 4th – 6th November 2014

We’ll be traveling to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from the 4th of November to the 6th of November 2014 to present Board Meeting Cloud (Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Azure) and Board Meeting Enterprise (Windows 8.1, Office, SharePoint Server, Lync, Outlook, SQL Server, Microsoft Azure, On Premises or Private Cloud) at Microsoft Device Day 🙂

Board Meeting Cloud is a self-service agenda management solution with a modern & touch user interface that stores you data geo-redundantly in the Cloud.

Board Meeting Enterprise is an enterprise grade solution that allows the implementation of Smart Governance on large & structured organizations, enabling agility in end-to-end hierarchical decision making workflows (from the hierarchies to the Board), cost cutting while reducing drastically the environmental impact and time consumption on non-value adding tasks. This can be implemented either On Premises, on a Public Cloud Provider or on a Private Cloud Provider.

If you’d like to meet us while we’re there, we still have some slots free for meetings and would very much appreciate that 🙂
