NEW YORK, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Davia Temin, founder and CEO of marketing, reputation, and media strategy company Temin and Company, has been tapped by the U.S. Department of State to serve as a Delegate in the Global Entrepreneurship Program's Entrepreneurship Delegation to Greece.
In partnership with Greece, the U.S. Department of State's Global Entrepreneurship Program (GEP) and the U.S. Embassy in Athens will lead an Entrepreneurship Delegation to Greece on April 28-30th, 2014. The delegation will be led by GEP Director Caron De Mars, of the State Department's Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs. As Greece takes on the EU Presidency and faces unemployment challenges, the U.S. government would like to take concrete steps to encourage further entrepreneurship and economic growth of our important European ally.
The U.S. Department of State has asked 11 prominent U.S. role-model entrepreneurs and investors, including Ms. Temin, to meet with senior Greek officials and the Greek private sector to discuss the key entrepreneurial opportunities and challenges for Greece. They will also meet one-on-one and with groups of local entrepreneurs to promote participation in key areas of entrepreneurship development, learn about one another's businesses, and establish lasting connections. These connections can add to the supply chain to benefit both U.S. and Greek businesses.
"Entrepreneurship is one of the most powerful catalysts in recovering from the effects of the economic downturn, and has proven to be critical in returning to economic equilibrium – both in the U.S. and globally," says Ms. Temin. "It is not surprising that Greece is seeing a dramatic spike in the number of entrepreneurial start-ups. With the recession still ongoing, individuals are finding new and inventive ways to make a living, while offering innovative services and products poised to transform the Greek marketplace and economy."
Founder and CEO of Temin and Company, a boutique management consultancy focused on crisis and reputation management, marketing and media strategy, and high-level leadership coaching, Ms. Temin will bring first-hand leadership and entrepreneurial experience, as well as insight gained through her consulting practice, to entrepreneurs in Greece. She started Temin and Company in the middle of a successful corporate career – finding herself driven to explore an independent, entrepreneurial venture. In her practice, Ms. Temin coaches CEOs, nonprofits, and businesses at the highest levels – on leadership issues, branding, risk and crisis management, and digital visibility.
Ms. Temin will co-lead a panel on marketing and public relations.
"Whenever one starts a new venture, the right kind of marketing is essential," she states. "But the wrong kind of marketing just wastes time, energy and money. I've spent my career learning how to effectively and efficiently help businesses grow, raise their visibility, and develop their reputation as the go-to expert in their fields. I am honored – and cannot wait – to share whatever experience I have gained with entrepreneurs in Greece."
This will be Ms. Temin's first time representing the United States on behalf of the U.S. Department of State.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
