Global Product Management Talk With Angelo Firenze, VP BizDev, Ascendle

Angelo Firenze, Vice President of Business Development, Ascendle, Discusses How To Innovate Your Way Into Your Customers' Hearts

Today’s high-tech businesses don’t really sell technology anymore. Rather, they use the high-tech innovations they create to disrupt existing mature markets. This means that every business out there, whether a barber shop or the next Facebook, needs to be constantly thinking about and working towards new products and services that positively impact their customers’ lives. This innovation is not optional. Today it is a business imperative as critical to long-term success as having sound finances and good people. Fortunately, High-Tech innovation isn’t as hard to do as you might think. It is rarely the product of an individual genius or a single moment of inspiration. Instead, like anything else worth doing, innovation simply requires a defined goal, and the willingness to pursue it.

Angelo Firenze, Vice President of Business Development, Ascendle is the featured guest joining host Cindy F. Solomon who is broadcasting live from Studio132 for the Global Product Management Talk on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12:00 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.

Angelo says, "I'm so grateful to the Global Product Management Community for their work on behalf of product people. The greatest and most meaningful innovations are rarely, if ever, the work of just one mind. It is the product manager who acts as the great facilitator among many disparate stakeholders, and for this he deserves our praise and our thanks."
