The Power of Human Networks in the Information Age
In the age of the Internet, any of us can reach just about anyone in our networks almost instantaneously (most of the time), no matter where they are on the planet. This also enables us to do humanitarian work which was heretofore less feasible. Dr. Bego Gerber will discuss the portfolio of exciting opportunities that Chemists Without Borders are able to pursue as a result of the generous volunteerism of our members — chemists and non-chemists alike — and the benefits of the Information Age.
Bego Gerber is President and Co-Founder of Chemists Without Borders. He is an Executive Associate accredited by the Institute for Independent Business and a founding member of Advice That Works. He is Managing Director of Business Development International, a lifestyle marketing company.
Dr Gerber’s experience ranges from academic medical research to patented new product development in a no-walls start-up and in Fortune 100 R&D; and from idea processing and information management to entrepreneurial lifestyle marketing and the development of B-quadrant businesses on the Internet.
