Austin Jewish Business Network Features Teamwork Speaker
By Jennifer Lava
Austin Jewish Business Network’s next speaker and networking event will feature Joshua Lawton, co-founder and managing partner of Health Hat, who will present “Getting the Most Out of Your Team.”
The event will be held April 17 at the Frisco Diner.
Being a Texan, it is hard to not fall into the individual ruggedness ideal that permeates Texas based on vaqueros and cowboys roaming the plains, roping longhorns, driving them to market and making Texas what it is today. But that is because the closest most of us have gotten to a cattle drive is watching a show at home. It took a team to get those longhorns to market, and it takes a team to get your product or business off the ground. Come learn lessons that will help you form your own team while enjoying stories of success, failure, and humor from an individual who has led efforts for White House programs and built teams in the private, public and startup communities.
Lawton is a recovering Trekkie, full-time entrepreneur, lifelong investor, part-time writer and a once upon a time combat medic. He is currently the co-founder and managing partner of Health Hat, a healthcare technology company that assists hospital networks and clinics quickly mitigate operational problems thereby increasing revenue and patient satisfaction.
He has built products and teams in both the private and public sectors and has testified before the United States Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs. He is an alum of both Johns Hopkins University and McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. Follow him on Twitter @alertingmainst.
