The second episode of the Episteme IT/InfoSec Career Portfolio Teleseminar & Podcast Series will feature my brilliant colleague and friend Tim Keanini (aka TK) of nCircle Network Security.
I first met TK when he joined nCircle in 2001, and I was immediately amazed by his ability to synthesize technology and manage people. While lots of people are good at one or both, TK manages to combine the two in a way that is beyond rare. The longer I got to know TK, I realized that he does three things better than almost anyone else I have ever met.
- In moving up the corporate laddder, he has managed to stay an incredible technologist, as well as maintaining his passion for technology
- TK has an incredible ability to use "synthetic thinking" - he is as likely to pull a great technical idea out of a book on sociology or history as out of a technical book. He can use ideas from anywhere to start up his creative engine.
- He has an incredible network of people around him - it's impossible not to love TK, and so he makes friends where-ever he goes. It has created a group of incredibly smart people around him who are available to help whenever he needs it.
The teleseminar is going to take place at 1PM PST/4PM EST on Tuesday, November 28. Click here to sign Up For the Mailing List to get the call-in info.
