Speakers
Sarah Thomas, Director, Women In Comms

Catherine Michel, Chief Technology Officer, Sigma Systems

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.

 

Sarah Thomas, Director, Women In Comms
Sarah Thomas’s love affair with communications began in 2003 when she bought – and bedazzled – her first cellphone, a pink RAZR. She joined the editorial staff at Light Reading in 2010 and has been covering mobile technologies ever since. She got her start covering telecom in 2007 at Telephony, later Connected Planet. Her non-telecom work experience includes a brief foray into public relations at Fleishman-Hillard and a hodge-podge of internships, including at Ingram’s (Kansas City’s business magazine), American Spa magazine and the tweens’ quiz bible, QuizFest, in NYC.
