Keynote Speakers: 


10/22 Opening Dinner: "Business Security in a Connected Society"

Lynn Child is an accomplished entrepreneur, speaker, and philanthropist from northwest Ohio. Her catapult into the information technology industry is driven by her love for technology and the people who are impacted by it. For over a decade, she has been a driving force behind the technology companies CentraComm, focused on networking, security, and data management and Aardvark, focused on web and application development. Today, Lynn continues to be a trusted IT advisor in board rooms and public forums throughout the world.  


10/23 Conference Opening Session:  "Enhancing partnerships between universities and local government" 

Aaron D. Montz was elected Mayor of Tiffin in November 2011 as the youngest ever Mayor in the history of the city. Montz attended Columbian High School in Tiffin and graduated from Heidelberg University in 2008 with a degree in History and Political Science. His political career began in 2007 with his election to Tiffin City Council to represent the City’s Second Ward.  Tiffin has certainly become one of the leading communities for job growth in all of Ohio. In 2013 alone, more than 400 industrial sector jobs and 250 retail jobs were created due to the positive leadership of Montz at City Hall. In fact, Tiffin was rated #30 out of nearly 600 micropolitans for economic development in 2012 and then jumped to #10 in the nation on that same list for 2013. Tiffin collected a record number of income tax revenue in 2013 and is expected to see that number rise again in 2014.
