Wipfli is proud to sponsor Amplify Oshkosh and to support its mission to ‘Empower Your Business with Technology’.  But it goes way beyond that. Business owners and leaders are faced with changing technology and increased threats to their businesses every day. Amplify brings these issues to the forefront and provides tools and resources for business leaders to address these topics before they can negatively impact their business. The networking with local, like-minded business leaders is worth the time and investment alone.

Amplify Oshkosh has brought programs and speakers highly relevant to help our businesses understand the importance of technology. Awareness of efficiencies, risk and how to protect your business in this ever changing environment is extremely important. Building awareness and Connecting business owners to resources and talent that can help improve a company’s workflow, reporting and operational efficiency is how we compete and win in today’s world.  

I believe that the greater Oshkosh area has the platform with the number of technology companies, corporations and small businesses to retain and attract technology professionals to our area which in turn improves our community, and makes our businesses better able to compete, stronger and more sustainable.  

Amplify has helped to magnify this opportunity and brings us together to tackle these issues.

Growing up in Appleton, WI, I always wanted the opportunity to one day work with organizations in the greater Fox Valley area. Amplify Oshkosh has given me that opportunity. I’m excited to work with local organizations to not only help protect them against the ever-changing cybersecurity threats out there, but also to provide education and career opportunities within the community.

Oshkosh is a great community of industry, charity and schools that has spawned many great technology companies. Through participating in Amplify Oshkosh, I hope to attract people to the area and into the field of technology by turning up the volume on the message of the vast opportunities and variety of work available here in the field of information technology.

When I learned that the Oshkosh area is destined to be a hub of technological innovation and was known to hold nearly ¼ of Wisconsin’s technology jobs, I knew we needed to get the word out and connect our region’s business, education, and community with a tech-forward mindset.  I know that changing from a manufacturing, trades, and traditional education mindset and creating a community that behaves more like a technology startup will encounter some obstacles. I have a passion for technology, change, and human connection along with the knowledge and skills to advance change.  Amplify is a great opportunity to bring Oshkosh leaders together to advance how we address change in our businesses, careers, education, and community.
