About Us

Welcome to "IT Coach for Small Business Leaders," a podcast by InfoSystems, where we believe strong business leaders don't avoid technology conversations, they get educated and get involved. Strong business leaders today aren't running away technology conversations, they are engaged and want to take charge in their company. The problem is, there just aren't a lot of good resources out there on a local level to learn about IT topics. That's why we started the podcast IT Coach for Small Business Leaders. Hosted by Aaron Swann, one of InfoSystems' senior IT consultants, this podcast features practical advice that small business leaders can use to make great IT decisions. So if you're interested in learning more about IT, tune in to our podcast, IT Coach for Small Business Leaders.
