Security & productivity was the name of the game for SMB owners and Entrepreneurs at the recent Accelerate your Business Event in Boston.

On April 5th, a congregation of small and medium business owners and entrepreneurs joined Microsoft and Intel in Boston for the latest Accelerate Your Business event.
This worldwide series of inspiring business conferences is designed to give participants insight into the latest technology trends, marketing know-how and management innovation needed to grow their companies.
Participants heard from Bill Taylor, co-founder of Fast Company, who shared highlights from his book “Simply Brilliant: How Great Organizations Do Ordinary Things in Extraordinary Ways.” In his session, Bill focused on examples of companies who go above and beyond with their customer experience to ensure they stand out from the competition.
My favorite quote from Bill’s speech (which he impressively delivered with zero slides) was, “Great entrepreneurial companies are simply prepared to do things that other companies in their field can’t or won’t do!”
Media Personality, Carol Roth provided tactical suggestions on how to grow revenue through customer loyalty using her 3.0 framework, and Gene Marks, Author and Columnist, facilitated an expert panel with representatives from Carbonite and NeuroMetrix on how to grow your business through shrewd marketing, uncovering some common pitfalls and suggestions for ensuring a secure, productive workforce.
Microsoft Partners; Lenovo, Samsung, Acer and Connection were on hand to answer questions and showcase some of the latest devices running Windows 10 Pro. Participants left with new ideas for growing their own businesses and with new contacts from the networking opportunities!
