Stacy Griggs, CEO, El Toro is our guest speaker for Music Tech Connect. We officially met when he attended a Music Tech event in March, but i’ve been knowing OF Stacy for a while. He is hip to the idea of connecting our Tech Community around music and is spreading the word. Stacy doesn’t play an instrument but he loves music and has recognized that many of his techie friends, are indeed musicians as well.
If you didn’t catch his talk at DisruptHR – it’s a great one! Does the World Still Need HR? SuperMan / Human Resources / barefoot employees … The world has changed … have you?
Stacy is not only a leader in our Tech community, but a SERVANT leader as well. When he is not traveling, you’ll most likely find him running a call with the Volunteer Fire Department, making about 150 runs a year.
How he keeps up with travels, volunteering and growing El Toro is beyond me. Maybe he can share some of his time management secrets with us!
