BCTIA Grub in the Hub: Brave Leaders, Bold Futures
On Friday, September 18, 2015 Berlineaton co-founding partner Richard Eaton presented at the British Columbia Technology Industry Association's (BCTIA) Grub in the Hub event. BCTIA is a not-for-profit organization that supports development, growth, and advancement of technology companies in BC. Grub in the Hub features expert speakers presenting on topics relevant to busy tech entrepreneurs.

As founders of technology start-ups successfully grow their companies, they commonly find it challenging to transition from working with a founding team of 2 to 3 partners to leading a team of more than a dozen employees. Richard's presentation provided advice and strategies for these entrepreneurs transitioning to a leadership role.

During his presentation, Richard also shared some of the secrets of success he has gleaned from hundreds of consulting assignments serving alongside visionaries working to improve the effectiveness of their organizations in the face of daunting challenges, and who share Berlineaton's battle cry: Be Bold. Participants also had the opportunity to participate in a simple, dynamic activity intended to help them chart their own course for the future.

Will your organization exist five years from now?
Organizations that thrive excel in three areas: 

  • Direction: a clear, widely shared, and aspirational vision of the future and a compelling road map to get there.
  • Process: clear, effective and efficient steps that create meaningful outputs. Daily tasks and deliverables yield their best results when processes are clear and strong, and aligned with organizational objectives. Processes facilitate the alignment of action with direction.
  • People: People make it all happen. People have the skills, capacity, and impetus to translate strategic intent into reality. Ultimately, people and the culture they create drive an organization towards its chosen future.
