Tattered Cover Bookstore - LoDo (map)

Over forty Denver Business Series members and guests met for a lively breakfast discussion at the Tattered Cover Bookstore event hall in LoDo where Lisa Jasper and Jim Smelley led an interesting discussion on the major challenges faced by many companies today; chief of which is how a big, slow, “Goliath” organization can compete with a young, nimble “David” organization, especially when that Goliath has grown a second head (IT) and that David is armed with an arsenal of new, inexpensive and powerful mobile, collaboration and cloud tools.  In most Goliath type companies the two heads (“IT” and “The Business”) are rarely competing as a team, which makes it all the more difficult for them to prevent losing business to the David’s of the world. 

We had a great turnout and lively discussion.  Thanks for another great event!

Come enjoy breakfast and listen to a very interesting speaker.  Jeff Sherman, a corporate and securities lawyer at Faegre Baker Daniels LLP will recount how years of doing deals, advising senior corporate management, and reading business books (sort of) prepared him to practice law in a war zone.  From September 2010 until July 2011, Jeff served at a small forward operating base near the Iranian border in Iraq as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's Corps of the US Army.   Jeff will talk about how he used the lessons he learned from Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Lewis, Peter Drucker, Jim Collins, Daniel Pink , Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner during Operation New Dawn.   Jeff experienced the challenges of building the rule of law, advising strong-willed commanders, and counseling emotionally fragile troopers-all of which have corresponding challenges in the corporate world.  The presentation will include videos, photos, and small prizes.
