Chance Heads Up New IT Security Sector at Total Security Summit

xavier chance.jpgThe Total Security Summit is launching an IT/Network Security sector as part of the 2016 event program headed by Event Manager and Specialist Xavier Chance.

By adding IP and IT security to the list of areas covered, the Total Security Summit will become a more inclusive event focusing on topics ranging from physical security to IT, including audit security, computer network security, data security and information security management.

“It’s important for us to acknowledge a need within our audience and then tailor it to our events,” says Forum Events CEO Steve Parsloe, “We see that IT security plays a massive part in protecting today’s largest companies, and I’m confident that Xavier will make the latest IT technology and solutions his passion in this year’s program.”

With a background in communications, Chance has experience in numerous industries including human resources, training and development, contact centers, customer service, and physical security. His interest in new technologies and solutions makes him the perfect candidate to drive the latest addition to the Total Security Summit.

“With technology advancing at a fast pace, we need to be prepared for any security threats. By focusing on IT Security, I want to bring in new ideas that can lead to solving the security threats of the present and the future as well,” says Chance of the new expansion.

The Total Security Summit is a complimentary appointment-based event for senior-level executives in the security industry. The Summit hosts one-on-one meetings between solution providers and security executives based on their profile, along with a seminar program and numerous peer-to-peer networking opportunities.

Summit Recap: Training & Development Summit - New Orleans

laughing delegate.jpgNEW ORLEANS, LA - A vibrant city set the scene for an energetic group of C-level, VPs and Directors at the Training & Development Summit at the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans on September 14th and 15th. With targeted appointments, attendees benefited from the perfect balance of productivity and entertainment including networking, book signings, seminars, gala evenings and lively giveaways.

Starting with the pre-event cocktail reception taking place on Sunday evening, attendees did not hesitate to make new connections while watching a lively corner of the French Quarter from balconies. 

Early Monday morning, following a brief registration and after chatting over breakfast with other attendees, vendors and delegate attendees begin to meet for the first round of meetings. "If I was looking for the opportunity to have a serious conversation with vendors and truly understand their products and services, this was the place," recalls the District Director of Talent Development at Dallas County Community College District. "I've already scheduled meetings for next week to review the activities that I participated in and to look at vendors."

For new attendees at the Summit, the set up is oddly unfamiliar in comparison to a trade show. The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans grand ballroom played a decadent back drop as the room took off with enthusiastic introductions. "I made some really great connections because of you! (An) excellent way to expose those with needs to companies that offer solutions - the format that features 'appointments' is much better than the traditional 'expo," says the Division Director at Mississippi State Department of Health.

Monday continued with a busy schedule of seminars led by industry experts including Laura Putnam, a celebrated author specializing in workplace wellness, and hiring experts Teresa Faoro Sertic and Johnny Keone Simmons - who are in search of the purple squirrel -  familiar lingo for the 'perfect' candidate. Also leading a seminar, Lisa Reuth - a prized speaker who shared her insight into training, development and retaining staff. 

By five o'clock Monday evening, new acquaintances were already preparing for the night's festivities - a cocktail reception, gala dinner followed by casino night. The aroma of garlic filled an entire elegant room set with black table cloths and red roses - Creole style shrimp simmered in a cajun sauce at a food station as guests mingled over cocktails. Following a dinner of short ribs, beautifully tender fish and sweet deserts, the true gamblers struck out for a test of their luck at casino night.

Attendees gathered around black jack and roulette tables, laughing and shaking hands as they celebrated big wins. The grand prize? A free year's worth of movie tickets from Fandango. By 10:30 that evening, guests were cashing in their chips for a chance to win and retiring for the evening for an early start again the next morning.

On day two of the Training & Development Summit, meetings picked up bright and early as attendees continued with their itineraries of meetings and seminars. An equally busy day continued throughout Tuesday, ending with a closing luncheon and prize giveaway. The Forum Team drew door prizes from Trainer's Warehouse, the Ritz-Carlton, Seiko and Laura Putnam.
