Wylie Blanchard: Business Technology Consultant and Speaker 2020

Wylie Blanchard is a speaker, IT consultant, digital strategist, gadget enthusiast, analytics professional, and adventure seeker.

His mission in life is to better the lives of working professionals by educating them on how to use technology as a tool to amplify their expertise and business lives.

As a Technology Leader, he has 20+ years of management and software analysis experience, has expertise in Digital Marketing, Product Management, IT Service Management, Data-Analytics & Cybersecurity and has developed a reputation for explaining technical concepts in ways, which non-technical audiences can make informed and timely decisions.

Today, more than ever before, independent business owners and organizational leaders need to understand the advantages of integrating technology into their businesses. No longer can they rely on one person or one department to maintain the infrastructure and leaders simply react to the competitive demands around them. Leaders need to have an understanding of the technology currently available to them, what it can do for them now and in the long-term and how they can maximize the full potential of their current tools. Being passionate about this subject, Wylie actively researches the business impact of current trends in the information technology industry and actively shares how professionals can utilize technology to improve their business lives.
