About the speaker
Ann M. Marcus brings two decades of experience in communications and technology to the topic of networking. For the past several years, Ann has divided her time professionally between Collaborative Strategies in San Francisco, where she is an analyst and consultant, and with her own business communications consulting practice. Ann’s studies in sociology (ethnomethodology), linguistics, and business systems analysis form the underpinnings of her life-long interest in the ways people work together, communicate about their work, and establish processes and tools to streamline their efforts.
Ann holds a B.A. in Sociology from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)/San Diego (UCSD) and an M.B.A. in Decision Sciences from San Francisco State University. She is currently doing coursework toward a PMI (Project Management Institute) certification.
Ann has served on the program committees for Women In Technology International (WITI), Computer Human Interaction Forum of Oregon (CHIFOO), and Fast Company Magazine’s Company of Friends. She also participates in communities of practice in knowledge management, organizational storytelling, and video ethnography.
