Episode Info:

On March 6, 2019, WRAL TechWire held its first TechWire Live event of 2019. Wells Fargo sponsors the event series, and this was the first of four subject matters scheduled for 2019. The content centered around leadership and the itinerary divided the night into two sessions. The first session took a macro look at how effective leaders move the ball forward in their communities. The second session took a micro look at how to make the most significant impact within each person's own organization.
 James Amato, the Strategy and Business Development manager of WRAL TechWire hosted the event to a packed house. The crowd at WRAL-TV's historic Studio A was comprised of community leaders, CEO's, serial entrepreneurs, and industry thought leaders. The audience gathered to discuss ways to realize their leadership potential in an increasingly divisive environment fully.
 This episode of Tech on Tap is an edited recording from the first panel discussion of the night featuring Jesica Averhart, of the Leadership Triangle, as the moderator. Brenda Berg, CEO and president of Best NC, was featured on the panel and spoke in depth on the gap in education and economic mobility within North Carolina as a hurdle that we as a community must take on to raise the profile of North Carolina in the evolving business and tech economy. Eric Boduch, the co-founder of Pendo, lent his expertise on the need to locally shift focus from competitors within our state lines to companies on the global stage. Both spoke on the region's diversity of thought and workforce as opportunities that make the Triangle, and North Carolina as a whole, attractive to businesses and individuals on the move.
 Listen to Tech on Tap and look out for the announcement of the next TechWire live event.
