Vancouver, B.C.—September 12, 2018—This year’s iQmetrix Meetup boasts two of the tech industries most coveted opinion leaders; Shelly Palmer and Reshma Saujani.

The 2018 iQmetrix Meetup is focused on providing actionable solutions for the problems wireless and repair retailers face today. In addition to hosting sessions with industry leaders to generate meaningful discussions about the topics that matter to attendees, this year’s event will have two inspiring keynotes that are sure to leave the event audience in awe.

First on the event agenda is Shelly Palmer. Named LinkedIn’s #1 Voice in Technology for 2018, Shelly is the CEO of The Palmer Group; a strategic advisory, technology solutions, and business development practice focused at the nexus of media and marketing with a special emphasis on machine learning and data-driven decision-making. He is a trusted strategic advisor to the C-Suite of leading digital media, content, broadcasting, and technology firms and a key driver of market, technology, and strategic direction.

At Meetup, Shelly will be touching on how businesses can create a competitive advantage with human and machine learning partnerships. He’ll explore the big questions: will wireless retailers start hiring dispensing opticians or will eye class stores start selling wireless devices? One way or another, AR, AI, and related technologies are going to change everything you know about selling wireless devices and services. The tech guru and CES whisperer says that “the way most people think about AI is mythological” and that beyond the myth, a technology is emerging that has the power to change everything. Interested in becoming an expert in AI and machine learning in under an hour? Well, then Shelly Palmer’s iQmetrix Meetup keynote is a must-attend.

The second keynote on the docket for this industry-powered event is Reshma Saujani. As the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, Reshma began her career as an attorney and activist. Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization who works to close the gender gap in technology and change the image of what a programmer looks like and does. Reshma works to inspire, educate, and equip young women with the computing skills to pursue 21st-century opportunities—and with the 2018 year-end projection of 90,000 American girls enrolled in her programming, she is well on her way to changing the world for the better.

Reshma has a lengthy list of awards and accolades derived from her hard work in and passion for the technology sector, and since her endeavors began, she has sparked a national conversation about increasing the number of women in tech. It’s no secret that this sector has a serious gender imbalance. We live in an era in which girls are told they can do anything, so why aren’t there more women in leadership roles, inside and outside the industry, to look up to? When Girls Who Code was founded in 2012, Reshma and her team vowed to strive to correct this disparity—they have since inspired nearly 40,000 young girls, 90 percent of whom have declared or intend to declare a major or minor in computer science. Reshma is an active advocate for a new model of female leadership focused on embracing risk and failure, promoting mentorship and sponsorship, and bolding charting your own course, both personally and professionally. iQmetrix is excited to have Reshma inspire our audience at the 2018 Meetup.

 

These two keynotes are sure to leave any team invigorated, ready to make waves and try new things to see success in wireless and repair. Be a part of the future of the industry be attending the 2018 iQmetrix Meetup.
