Top execs to share thoughts on 2020 and upcoming opportunities

Our Washington Technology Power Breakfast on Wednesday offers an exclusive opportunity to hear some of the leading executives in the market share their views on the challenges and opportunities of 2020.

The lineup includes presidents and CEOs of some of the most recognizable large, small and mid-sized companies in the market.

The event is this coming Wednesday, Nov. 6 at Convene in Tysons Corner, Virginia. Here is a link for more information and to register. Reminder: WT Insiders get a discount.

The executives we have speaking include:

  • Tim Hurlebaus, president of CGI Federal
  • Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse
  • Paul Dillahay, CEO of NCI Information Systems
  • Dolly Oberoi, CEO of C2 Technologies
  • Todd Stottlemyer, CEO of CNSI

Each executive will for about 15 minutes each lay out their view of the market and where they see opportunities for their companies. Then we’ll bring them back for a Q&A with the audience. This will be a great opportunity for the audience to directly ask executives for their thoughts.

I’m moderating the Q&A panel, so I’ll follow up on the remarks made during the formal executive presentations. I’ll listen for information on their strategic plans and why they think those plans make sense in today’s market.

A  topic of keen interest to me is anything on what technologies they are interested in or those they see as the most disruptive over the next few years. I know we’ll hear about artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and the cloud. But those technologies are in their second or third generation and evolving evolving.

In following company and market trends, I’m also fascinated by the ability for companies to adapt -- or not adapt in some cases. I plan to ask something along those lines.

Other questions rattling around in my head are what concerns they have about the 2020 elections, how the non-existent appropriation bills impact the market, and of course the possible impeachment. It is having an impact whether it actually goes through or not, so what contractors feeling? 

I’m expecting a lively discussion; you won’t want to miss it.

Here is the link again with more details.
