Hear from:

Dave Hartman, President and Co-Founder of Hartman Executive Advisors, founded Hartman with his wife Marie to transform executives’ long held, traditional views of IT and demonstrate how a technology-aligned business strategy is critical for long-term success. This pioneering approach still catches some by surprise; he continues to hear from executives that conversations with Hartman are often the first business discussions they’ve had that include technology.

During his eight years as a Naval Flight Officer, and in his early career in IT supporting the healthcare, commercial, retail, government and nonprofit industries, Hartman developed strong leadership, analysis and execution skills. He’s also a dedicated collaborator and lifelong relationship builder, expertise he strengthened as an IT management consultant with Andersen Consulting, now Accenture. Hartman earned a bachelor’s degree in urban studies from College of the Holy Cross and a MBA from Embry Riddle University.

Ryan LaSalle, Managing Director – North America Lead, Accenture Security, leads the North America practice for Accenture Security. He is responsible for nurturing the talented teams that bring transformative solutions to better defend and protect Accenture’s clients. He is also accountable for delivering on Accenture’s commitment to clients for high-quality, innovative delivery to address their most critical issues.

During more than 20 years with Accenture, LaSalle has led client engagements across commercial, non-profit and the public sector by integrating emerging technologies into advanced solutions to drive agility and meet business needs. His recent engagements with Media, Energy and Banking clients help leverage new models and practices across the unique business challenges of each industry. He consults with customers on focused solutions that bring together analytics, knowledge discovery, and cyber-security to improve threat assessment and response methodologies.

LaSalle is a Ponemon Institute Fellow, active with the Greater Washington Board of Trade and sits on security innovation advisory councils for clients across multiple industries. He holds patents in human resource management, knowledge discovery and establishing trust between entities online. He is a frequent speaker at international security conferences and has authored numerous articles on cyber security. LaSalle earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University.

Robert Wallace, President, CEO and Founder of BITHGROUP Technologies, Inc., Bithenergy, Inc., and EntreTeach Learning Systems, LLC, is an internationally-known entrepreneur, author, speaker and consultant. With more than 30 years of business experience spanning engineering, energy and IT, Wallace blends decades of research with practical real-world advice to educate and inspire entrepreneurs and executives worldwide. His rags-to-riches story began in the Baltimore projects amidst poverty and racial segregation, before overcoming obstacles to establish three companies: BITHGROUP Technologies, Bithenergy, and through, EntreTeach.
