Keynote Announced for Expo: Dave Beckman 

ISA Hamilton is pleased to announced that the keynote speaker for our 2015 Expo will be David Beckman. Mr. Beckman will be presenting at talk entitled Think for a Change, which will present overview of changes taking place in our sector and how technology continues to initiate change in our various industries.

Mr. Beckman is the Senior VP of Marketing with Emerson Process Management. Before taking his current role, he has held various senior executive roles within the Fischer  Controls, Systems and Solutions, and other units within Emerson. Prior to his career at Emerson, he held several roles at Honeywell and Siemens, including manager of Honeywell’s European operations.  Mr. Beckman received his BSEE from LeTourneau University (Longview, Texas), and has an MBA from Harvard and several other advanced degrees.
Some of the ideas Dave will talk about during his "Think for Change" keynote address:
People who live imaginative lives are “What If?” people.  They respond to ideas and events with a “What If?” attitude.  They behave in “What If?” ways.
What If – we could build a plant where we had no surprises?
What If – we could complete a project under budget and ahead of schedule?
What If – we could predict with bull’s eye accuracy the needs of the market?
What If – we could create an environment within a plant where innovative ideas are welcomed and solicited from every pay grade?
What If – we could seamlessly connect to subject experts wherever they are, regardless of who they work for?
What If – we could make a clean break from the legacy of the past and find new ways to collaborate with vendors, contractors, consultants and end users?
What If – we as automation professionals could imagine an empowered engineering and operational force, which would change the face of our industry?
What If – we could THINK DIFFERENTLY from the usual approach of design, build, operate?
