Meet the Boss - Tough Talking for Tough Times



    NEW YORK, July 24 /CNW/ - Austin Adams, former CIO for JPMorgan Chase,
spent most of his 35-year career in banking overseeing technology and
operations. In a period of dramatic consolidation, he was involved in more
than 90 mergers and responsible for almost 28,000 employees and a
multi-billion dollar budget.
    On Wednesday 20 August, the man Business 2.0 magazine called "one of the
16 most influential technology people in the world" will be sharing his
accumulated knowledge with a host of senior financial executives in a unique,
online and interactive interview on MeettheBoss.com, the next generation
business-networking tool dedicated to finance.
    "These are tough times and I cannot think of anybody better to learn
from," says Spencer Green, Chairman of GDS International, the company using
Web 2.0 technologies to revolutionize financial services networking through
MeettheBoss.com.
    "Austin will be talking about the role of IT in challenging times and
sharing his opinions on how the CIO can be a better business partner.
Registered viewers can ask Austin questions directly, about the issues that
are affecting them, and get the answers they need for their business."
    Austin's interview is part of the official launch week for
MeettheBoss.com. Other events include an expert-led discussion group that will
make full use of the communications tools offered by MeettheBoss.com.
