On Top of a Flat World
In his book, The World is Flat, Thomas Friedman asserts that the dynamics of recent technological forces and global events have leveled the competitive playing field for players from all corners of the world.† The ever-expanding digital revolution, in combination with the lowering of trade and political barriers, has made it possible for almost everyone to conduct business across the planet instantaneously.†
What, you might ask, does this mean for in-house counsel?† The short answer is that to keep your career and your corporate client on top, itís more important than ever to know something about everything right now.† In-house professionals who continue to expand their knowledge base and who can reach out to reliable resources when the need to know arises will continue to excel and succeed in their careers no matter how flat the world becomes.
Thatís precisely where ACC gives you the edge. The Colorado Chapterís mission is to provide you with high quality resources to enhance your professional skills.† The Chapterís educational programs are targeted to address the unique needs of in-house counsel and provide all sorts of opportunities to connect with your in-house colleagues.† ACC gives you access to the expertise of close to 25,000 members in 75 countries throughout the world.† All for an amazingly low annual investment.
Iím pleased to have the opportunity to lead the Colorado Chapter in 2008 and to be a part of an effort to keep the in-house profession on top in this increasingly flat world. Your suggestions for improving our programs, events, and resources are always welcome.† Please let me know how ACC Colorado can best serve you.
