The event is focused on how quickly the world changes around us and how we, as professionals can keep up. The theme is around a glut of stimulation that we get from more sources than ever before in the history of the world. The stimulation comes from ever changing world of technologies, like Web/enterprise/search/offshore 1.0, 2.0 - X.0. For the most part when stimuli bombard us the message is to respond, do, or take some action. The messages tell us that we would be happier and our lives would improve if we did something different.

Steve is the Founder and Chairman of Propel Software, CEO of Abaca Technology. He is also the Chairman and Founder of Infoseek, now acquired by Disney. The second keynote will be addressed by Sanjay Mehrotra, Founder, President and COO of Sandisk Corporation. In addition, event consists of two networking clinics -- 'Building Lasting Relationships' and 'Super-charging Lasting Relationships' by Rajesh Setty, the President and CEO of Suggestica and the Chairman of iPolipo. Rajesh is also the author of the book 'Beyond Code'. Panelists include Ajit Nazre, (KPCB), Inderjit Banerjee (Applied Materials), Muralidharan (Arikara Co-Founder; VP, Sales/Marketing), Gregory Pal (Senior Director, Corporate Development), Sanjiv Parikh (Microsoft), Gopi Kallayil (Google), Ashu Garg (Microsoft) and Bhupen Shah (Sling Media).
