    About the webinar:
    Technology can do many things, but organizations must drive the strategy for executing on their vision. Learn how to implement a plan that enables communities to know exactly how to adopt the technology and optimize processes that will produce tangible results.

    Presenter:
    Katie Griffith, Principal, Bright Solutions, LLC
    After earning my degree in Management Information Systems (MIS) from the University of Georgia, I began my career in implementation and support services for a food service technology company. As the company rapidly grew and changed, I enjoyed an exciting career, moving from support to client relations management, and, eventually, sales. I continued my sales career at an Enterprise Mobility Management software company. I started Bright Solutions in 2015 when I saw a need for senior living providers to have an unbiased advocate help them evaluate and implement technology solutions in a way that produces tangible results for the organization.
