On the Road at U.S. Cellular Tech Tour

U.S. Cellular Tech Tour 2018

Over the last two months, I have had the pleasure of traveling the Midwest with U.S. Cellular as a part of the U.S. Cellular Business Tech Tour. Stopping in Des Moines, IA on October 30thand Milwaukee, WI on November 15th, 2018, the tour hosted more than 1,000 attendees and offered interactive experiences and insightful panel discussions, all about the Internet of Things and the latest technology designed for business operations.

I had the distinct honor of hosting the panel sessions and the main event – and a big one at that! Headlining the Tech Tour was a fireside chat and Q&A session with tech giant, Steve Wozniak.

A business innovator, philanthropist, and most notably, the Co-founder of Apple, Wozniak spoke of early days getting started in the industry and shared his predictions on the future of technology and how it will be shaped by IoT. While Wozniak’s 1977 Apple II computer was a disruptive force that changed society as we know it, modern tech advances have an even greater potential to impact the world. From Blockchain to connected cars, these developments will alter how people live their daily lives – and this is just the jumping off point.

My overall key takeaway is that U.S. Cellular is excited to be a part of connecting the technological world, and their partners/customers are equally as intrigued in learning more about IoT and how it can shape their lives and the world around them. More than just a phone company, U.S. Cellular has been forming partnerships with developing tech names such as IoT America to provide an enhanced suite of IoT solutions for business customers and rural communities.
