Thanks in part to insane amounts of coffee, Howard brings a level of enthusiasm and understanding to the extremely geeky world of technology. He presents topics, such as Internet strategy, social networks, and productivity, in a way that engages the audience by making it relevant, rather than just “gee whiz isn’t this cool.” He has leapt tall stacks of computers since age 4 (thankfully computers keep getting smaller) and professionally involved in Internet development since 1993.
Over the years Howard worked with a number of development companies, now working for his most stringent boss, himself. He worked and consulted on projects for clients such as AmeriHealth, AOL, Commerce Bank, Disney, Kaiser Permanente, Mattel, Medical Society of New Jersey, Microsoft, Samaritan Hospice, as well as start-up ventures and local small/medium businesses. In addition to his technology consulting, Howard teaches courses and seminars in web development for both undergraduate and Executive MBA students at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. Howard is on the board of directors as the Vice Chair of Membership for the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce.
Howard is a frequent presenter to a wide variety of audiences including the American Marketing Association Philadelphia Chapter, Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Philadelphia Chapter, BizBuzz On-Demand Business Conference, Burlington County Chamber of Commerce, Camden County Regional Chamber of Commerce, CPAmerica International, Directors of Volunteers in Associations, Florence Township, Garden State Council SHRM, Greater Philadelphia Senior Executive Group, Insurance Marketing and Communications Association, International Society of Special Events Greater Philadelphia Chapter, International Society of Weighing and Measurement, Key Executive Group, National Association of Women Business Owners, New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants, Northern Burlington Regional Chamber of Commerce, Partnership for Haddonfield, Philadelphia Business Journal, Rotary International Chapters, Synergy Works, Women of Wit and Wisdom, and the passing cars on Technology Way.
Howard hopes his boss will be impressed enough with his writing and speaking engagements to give him a raise.
