September 9 Meeting Notice

In August we heard from Yuval Tarsi concerning the Web 2.0 capabilities and how the company he helped found, Worklite, plays in that space. In September we will get another perspective on Web 2.0 from Chuck Pendell from Connectbeam. Chuck writes “Enterprise users of Web 2.0 technologies are creating new information silos of valuable user generated content which cannot be widely accessed. Connectbeam Spotlight enables the capture and management of this content into a single repository, making it easy to share across the entire organization. As a result, employees gain immediate access to knowledge and expertise which previously they never even knew existed.” Chuck will discuss the issues, demonstrate his product and engage the group in questions and answers.

Chuck Pendell is Vice President of Sales for Connectbeam. Chuck brings more than two decades of high tech sales and management experience to Connectbeam. Most recently, he was VP of Sales for Active Decisions; a consumer product guided selling technology. Active Technologies was acquired by Knova. His career includes sales and management positions with Burroughs/Unisys, Saros/Filenet, Action Technologies, Movaris, and Selectica (NASDAQ: SLTC), where he built the worldwide sales and field support team from three members to over 100, resulting in the highly successful Selectica IPO in March of 2000.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Chuck graduated from Washington State University with a BS in Business Administration.
