A Langley IT professional is speaking at an exclusive business event at Harvard University.
Coleman Technologies founder Darren Coleman is scheduled to speak at the Harvard Business School Business Expert Forum later this month.
“To be speaking at Harvard is truly fantastic. But also a good lesson. No one would have ever predicted that I would end up on a bestsellers list, let alone speak at the most prestigious university in the word,” said Coleman.
Coleman contributed to Technology Press’s #1 bestselling book, Easy Prey: How to Protect Your Business from Data Breach, Cybercrime and Employee Fraud. Ultimately, the book ranked as a number one bestseller on Amazon in the computers and technology category, he said.
Coleman, a cyber security expert and Information Technology Professional, founded his company in 1999.
His company has three technicians and two other staff.
Everything from marketing, accounting to call answering is outsourced, he said.
Being part of such an exclusive forum full of experts and entrepreneurs is exciting, said Coleman.
“Being featured as a speaker for the Business Expert Forum at Harvard University is a huge honor,” says Coleman. “I’m eager to take part in an event that is designed specifically to bring entrepreneurs together to learn, collaborate and better themselves professionally.”
“Connecting with other professionals to share experiences and expertise is a priority that I take very seriously.
“Learning from the experiences of others and connecting with a variety of perspectives is crucial in the development of any professional.
“I am honoured to be sharing my experiences and am eager to learn as much as I can to enrich my own approach to business.”
Coleman said he is incredibly honoured to not only be taking part in the event, but for the opportunity to speak and share his business insights with attendees.
The Business Expert Forum will bring together a variety of international professionals, from countless industries for three days of networking, workshops and engaging keynote speakers.
The forum is designed to bring together thought leaders and entrepreneurs of all kinds to engage with one another, collaborate and enrich the larger business community for the benefit of all professionals.
Coleman is the first speaker set for Friday, July 28 and his talk will offer insights into his journey as an entrepreneur and important milestones that helped him grow as a professional.
He will also speak to attendees about how personal values like commitment, character and exceeding expectations are the fundamental tenants of his business philosophy.
Coleman Technologies is located at #210-6323 197 Street.
