Technology has the ability to empower business owners, but according to technical business coach Stephanie Gaddin of Rocking Rose, there can indeed be too much of a good thing and that can lead to overwhelm.

Stephanie will explore this topic in depth when she attends the Small Business Skills Summit this August to cover “Dealing with technology overwhelm”.

“This topic is something very close to my heart and I’m passionate about,” Stephanie says.

“Technology is part of everything. It’s part of our personal lives, it’s part of our business lives, and there isn’t actually a part of our lives that isn’t touched in some way by a tool or technology that we use trying to make things better or more enjoyable, or trying to make it work faster or more efficiently.”

“The problem is we are overwhelmed sometimes by all this technology. We can feel that it is invading our lives.”

Stephanie will teach business owners practical steps for dealing with this overwhelm when she presents at the Small Business Skills Summit on August 10.

Her session will focus on:

  • How to critically evaluate the business stage from a technology perspective
  • How to critically evaluate what tools business owners need to stop paying for
  • How and when to add automation to business in a way that matches the business plan.

Stephanie will also explore the addiction to technology such as Facebook and smart phones, along with offering tips on scaling back without guilt.

Stephanie has over 15 years experience in IT and Technology across multiple verticals.

She currently works with select clients as a specialist technical Business Coach, drawing heavily on her own experience as the Global CEO of Dolphin Worxs, a niche software company operating across three continents selling into the commercial printing industry.

She is also available as a consultant, specialising in the rapid scaling of business operations during what she calls ‘the flip’ from small to large business.

Now she joins a host of small business experts sharing their insight at the Small Business Skills Summit.

Small business networking community Business Business Business is the organiser of the event, and founder Clive Enever explains that the 11-day Skills Summit was created to offer small business owners relevant skills, delivered directly to their door.
