Principal bloggers will be SAMC President/Founder Andrea Simon, PhD, and SAMC Consulting Partner Andrew Simon, who bring decades of experience in healthcare, financial services, entrepreneurialism, education, consumer marketing and nonprofits to infuse each blog with rich content.   

The Simons have recruited other leaders in their fields as guest bloggers, including:

The healthcare-focused blog, a spin-off and complement to the very popular webinar series: "Healthcare Innovation: Trends From The Trenches," will cover a variety of pertinent topics, including those introduced in the second Webinar series, which starts on September 19.

Dr. Simon, Ms. Barlow, and Ms. Silard have contributed early articles to the Trends From The Trenches blog, including:

·      Your Brand Story: What Does It Say About You And Is Anybody Listening?

"Our Trends From The Trenches blog will serve as a true mirror reflecting what's really happening in healthcare right now," said Dr. Simon. "The blog won't just be interesting, it promises to be very helpful. Many of our bloggers share their best advice to maneuver around problems they're currently facing and establish new best practices."

Business Change Management has a much broader focus, spanning many different industries and everything from the latest effects of economic forces to entrepreneurial trends, successes, and the lessons learned along the way. The early blogs kicking off Business Change Management, include:

·      Games: Building Engagement Into The District Budgeting Process

"I've had more than four decades of experience in the corporate world at L'Oreal, Citicorp and other companies, and as an entrepreneur starting and growing Questar Assessment, Inc. into a major player in the summative state assessment space." said Mr. Simon. "While I've been fortunate to have many successes, like everyone in business, I've fallen a few times, learning valuable lessons along the way.  Business Change Management will have a series of articles that help people in all stages of their career to make the best moves and roll with the inevitable changes."
