NewStart Solutions, L3C:

First off, I will be providing an update about NewStart Solutions, L3C (The developer of the CrimeSuspect.NET solution for Community Policing) that is fresh from its USA and International Trade Show introduction in Fort Worth, Texas last week at the IAATI conference, (International Association of Auto Theft Investigators).

We were introducing our new Exclusive USA Personal Property Asset MicroDot Distribution program and some innovative solutions for tagging and tracing personal assets and vehicles with our TAGnTrace and CSN PropertyVault Solutions.  Exciting things are happening with this new Colorado Springs-based company, so come and see what we have accomplished in the last several months.

We will also be hearing from Brian Siravo from Accinctus who will be introducing a new service offering from his company called "EAP Workshop".  These are the development of OSHA required Emergency Action Plans (EAP) to educate your employees on their actions and responsibilities during an emergency or unforeseen accident or critical incident.   As many of you know, Brian has over 20 years of experience in business continuity, contingency planning, and preparedness functions and is a Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP).  Brian is an ex officer in the US Air Force after graduating from the Air Force Academy.

TEDx Colorado Springs is Coming in October !

And finally, I have the pleasure of introducing the exciting news that TEDx is coming to Colorado Springs !

After reading about the upcoming event being planned for the Springs several weeks ago in the local media, I reached out to Managing Director Dan Cichello to see if I could help and assist the volunteers that have come together to help plan, organize and host the event.   And after a few emails, calls and meetings I'm happy to say... I have volunteered to be part of the team!   We are also actively looking for additional Sponsors and in-kind Support services so if you are interested in supporting TEDx in Colorado Springs, contact me. 

So, come by Wednesday night and will fill you in on the details !  In the meantime here is a recent press announcement that just went out this week:

About TED and TEDx:

TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, three broad subject areas that are, collectively shaping our futures. The ideas showcased contribute on matters from any intellectual discipline. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa.” In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program independent from TED Talks. Created by local, self-organized people brought together to share a TED-like experience with their communities.
