June 2012 CSE Group Meetup: Speaker Update
Here is a quick update of our Speaker Roster for This Month's Meetup: (As of 6/19/12)
Medical Voyce is on Stage !
This morning I confirmed the participation and contributions of the executive management team of Dirk Hobbs and Scott Casey of Medical Voyce, an innovative Monument, Colorado- based Healthcare services company, to speak at our Healthcare IT/Medical Services- Themed Meetup.
Medicalvoyce.com is a virtual platform for health care providers and consumers, supplying valuable tools, information and communication to connect physicians to each other and their patients. Within Medical Voyce are two unique web interfaces for two separate audiences: Public and Professional.
Medical Voyce was founded in 2006 by Dirk R. Hobbs after running MDNews in CO. Based on 10 years+ of close involvement with physicians and their struggles with practice management and other business challenges, Medical Voyce was created with the intent to give physicians the tools and information they need to better manage their practice.
Our Business Speakers:

His deep personal commitment to improving the professional experience of medical and health care personnel are the cornerstones of the organization’s Vision Mission and Values. The result is Medical Voyce, a unique online deliverable, which delivers powerful and intuitive Web-enabled toolkits, which provide revenue generators, peer communication platforms, and a venue that stimulates an element of peer gathering and collegiality, a long lost aspect of the medical profession. Additionally, the company’s IP has proven to deliver increased value for medical societies, hospitals, physicians, health-related consortiums, practice administrators, health departments, and of course, health consumers.
Dirk has been recognized in professional circles around the country as “one of the true advocates for medical professionals”, a designation he takes very much to heart and which is a guiding principle for the organization.

Our Entrepreneurial Speakers:
John Keeran, (who is a CSE Group member) and his associate Dr. Kailash Jaitly, will be co-presenters at our June 20th Meetup Next week where they will be doing a "re-cap" of the 2-day Creativity Seminar they launched last month in May here in Colorado Springs.
Their unique 2-day seminar format blends a form of "Creativity Science" that integrates humanism, behaviorism, neuroscience, and philosophy through physics and set theory. As John as described it, "They turn psychology into a “hard” science". Yet, their model is easy to understand with analogies of horses and cars used by John Keeran & Dr. Jaitly. If you can ride a horse or drive a car, you can understand this new and powerful model of the mind and emotions. Come to this Month's meetup and get an insiders view of this unique Creativity-Building process.
For More information on their Seminar: http://www.johnkeeran.com/the-seminars/
John is an industrial strength geek with over 30 years of experience in computer systems. From assembler programmer to systems integrator to database administrator to development manager and project manager, John has been a part of the growth of Information Technology from the “punch card” days of the 1960s into the 21st century and the World Wide Web of today. Much of his career was spent as a contractor, and he has worked on systems for Oracle, MCI, Agilent, Current, HFSI, AFSPACECOM, and many others.
Fascinated with the workings of the mind and emotions as a teenager, John applied his new expertise in boolean algebra and set theory to formulate a new model of the brain, the mind, and emotion based in thermodynamics, evolution, and economics. John realized the close ties between creativity and emotions. Armed with his new mind model and his understanding of the importance of creative problem-solving, John joined with two partners, Ed Scott and Gary Love, to invent the Creativity Game, a tool to reawaken and enhance innate problem-solving skills.
Finding that his terminology was alien to specialists in the field of psychology, John turned his attention toward learning the jargon of psychology and neuroscience.
