Iona’s School of Business Spotlights Tech Shamanism

Iona College’s LaPenta School of Business recently spotlighted a talk on Tech Shamanism, by Tom Roberto. The 2022 MBA graduates, concentrating in Marketing, had a 60-minute interactive session on how to properly think about technology when designing future UX.  The talk included topics on Hypertasking, a modern replacement to multitasking, coined by speaker Tom Roberto as well as an expedition into life just prior to the Internet.  Students were given ideas on what retailers and enterprises were faced with in 2022, and how technology may or may not have the answers.  The recommendations were surprising!

Described as “an inspiring tech expert,” Tom has devoted his professional life to help advance a vision of a world that utilizes technology in meaningful ways; a world in which magic exists and the general public feel inspired, feel safe at work, and return home fulfilled. Tom is the Chief Technology Officer at Core Technology Solutions, a tech deployment and managed services firm based out of NJ.  He has been featured on Forbes and was voted one of the 10 best CTO’s in 2020 according to Industry Era.
