You might say that today Apple had a good day...a very good day. That story and a look at affordable housing and the fact that more and more people are living in their...cars. What? $1,000 iPhones and living in the sedan? On the housing front we've got another issue. Young people do not want to build houses...so guess what fewer houses are started. We'll check the activity on Wall Street on this final day of July 2018, take a look at something called "Heartland Headwinds" and then a conversation about Dwolla and a look behind the curtain at Tero International. Go on...click through.
Recently Des Moines played host to Techna a conference for organizations that support a wide variety of technology groups across the United States, Canada and now Mexico. It was all made possible through sponsorships and the work of the Technology Association of Iowa. The Keynote Speaker for the event was Ben Milne the founder of Dwolla. While he was on the podium we sat down with Stephanie Atkin for a brief update about the company.
Even the trainers get...trained. Here are several conversations with trainers from Tero International. We think you'll find this interestin. The back-story is that we were invited to go and be part of the training session for Tero and then sat down with several of the Tero Trainers to ask about the experience. What is it that makes Tero International different when it comes to culture and to education….and, to the broader point…what does this mean to the clients they serve. We kick it off by asking the founder of Tero International, Ro Crosbie, "Why train trainers?"
