SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- In a recent Forrester Research paper, they predicted that all companies will become either digital predators or digital prey by 2020. What are you doing to "Keep Pace" with the technologies that are disrupting the marketplace so that you can successfully manage your career? Your career curriculum is the answer.

On Thursday, Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m., George Pace will be at the Scotch Plains Public Library to discuss this topic with the Career Networking Group. During this interactive presentation he will examine various digital technologies by identifying the disruption they are causing – and the opportunities they are creating, review the root causes as to why it’s hard to stay current, introduce the concept of a career horizon and why it’s critical to evolving your career, help you develop a career curriculum and identify core and elective classes specific to you, and teach you which techniques and technologies you can leverage to begin implementing that curriculum.

George Pace has more than 33 years of Information Technology experience spanning a wide range of disciplines. While he "Keeps Pace" with many different technologies, he has a particular interest in social networking as well as big data and its organizational value. Pace holds a bachelor's degree in computer science from Seton Hall University and an MBA from the Rutgers School of Management. Follow him on Twitter @keeppace.
