In Their Element

The power of watching leaders “in their element”  – I had the opportunity to see the talented Karen Lightman, Executive Director of MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, host and facilitate a full day workshop at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. Being there to observe her greeting members, facilitating discussions, meeting many people in the industry, and pulling it all together in a one day conference gave me a much greater awareness of her talent, her challenges and the environment of her work. And attending CES is an experience! My mind was expanded seeing the technological future and how the use of sensors to provide in-time as well as big data to health and fitness, automobiles, home management, and virtual reality is already changing the way we live.
