Global access to a vast network of talented professionals and stunning advances in Information Technology is changing the way business is done. A growing pool of free information is just a mouse-click away. Fierce competition among service providers is heating up in all but the most specialized niches. Like it or not, The Cheap Revolution is here.
In this panel discussion we examine the questions:
- What are the driving forces behind our changing business world?
- What's different today from 2-3 years ago? 5 years ago? 10 years ago?
- How should we as service providers respond?
- How you can your business best take advantage of The Cheap Revolution?
Join us Tuesday, September 20, 2005 (8:00 - 10:30 am) at Villanova University (Health Building, Room 200, 800 Lancaster Avenue, Villanova, PA 19085) for this important conversation. The future of your business just might depend on it!

Lee Devin, Dramaturg and author of "Artful Making - What Managers Need to Know about How Artists Work"
Lee Devin graduated from San Jose State College and took his PhD at Indiana University. He taught at the University of Virginia, Vassar College, and Swarthmore College. In 1970, he founded The Theatre at Swarthmore. An experimental acting class in ensemble techniques, the first practical arts course offered for academic credit at the College, led eventually to an independent Department of Theatre Studies housed in a state of the art building. He retired from teaching in 2002. In 1975 he became a member of the artistic staff of the People’s Light and Theatre Company, acting, teaching acting, and doing dramaturgy. With Rob Austin of the Harvard Business School he wrote "Artful Making: What Managers Need to Know about How Artists Work". It’s about using theatre techniques to do creative work in business, replacing industrial teams with knowledge work ensembles.
