Dan Gordon Delivers Talk to DC CTO Summit

The first-ever DC CTO Summit was held at the headquarters of the Crystal Tech Fund in Crystal City, near Reagan National Airport in Arlington, VA. The event had over 70 attendees.

Dan's talk focused on how CTOs should present technical problems to a non-technical audience, and was very well -received by the audience.

"I really enjoyed your presentation at the DC CTO Summit," said one tech leader. "I could use some of your points in my presentations and sales pitches."

Dan's talk can be found on SlideShare here.
