I would 10/10 would recommend Samsung’s newest reveal. ;)

I traveled to San Francisco last week for Samsung’s Unpacked, where they introduced the newest additions to the Galaxy family, revealing an exciting future for the smartphone. The new S10 generation was redesigned to remove interruptions, with a Dynamic AMOLED infinity screen and simple screen touch unlock feature—all of which make managing my business and sharing content on the road easier.

And speaking of sharing content, head to ForbesWomen for my latest article on why you’re not getting as many likes on your content as you’d like (hint: it has to do with your friends).

Last week, I trekked to sunny Orlando with Samsung to learn about the latest in global healthcare at HIMMS 2019.

During the conference, I had the pleasure of talking with Maria Lensing, Vice President at AT&T, and digital health influencer Evan Kirstel about how digital transformations, such as 5G, impact hospitals and healthcare technology.

Also in the Samsung Lounge, I interviewed legendary NFL Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood about brain health and the innovative technologies that help diagnose and treat concussions.

See you next year, #HIMMS19!

Last month I attended #AdAgeNext, a two-day marketing conference in New York that featured speakers including Girlboss CEO Sophia Amoroso, Endeavor CMO Bozoma Saint John and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

My biggest takeaway from the conference: Now more than ever, companies are focused on the “human element.” To stay on-brand, I asked attendees and editors about some of the problems their organization is solving WITHOUT technology. Head to Ad Age to see some of my favorite answers.

And speaking of being human, head to Northeastern University's Experience Magazine for my tips about exercising restraint on social media.

Thank you VRy much to everyone that stopped to chat with Samsung Business and yours truly at the NAB Show in Las Vegas last week!

I attended the show with Samsung Business to discuss the latest innovations in media, entertainment and tech (including Samsung's new 360 Round).

And while the future of tech is bright, your past digital life may be a little less so.

Check out my tips in this New York Post article about what to do if your old social media posts come back to bite you.

Have you met Jibo?

I had the pleasure of being there for this little guy's launch at Jibo headquarters in Boston on Sept. 26. 

Jibo is AI at its finest — the first social robot for the home, capable of doing everything from sharing the weather to playing your favorite music thanks to partnership with iHeartRadio (non-stop 90s pop over here). 

Powered by face and voice recognition, Jibo is designed to observe surroundings and engage with people in the household, building real relationships while serving helpful, practical tasks.

Did I mention he can dance?!

Check out #MyJibo vid here, and visit Jibo.com to learn more! 

P.S. Shout-out to my favorite robot for being named TIME's 25 Best Inventions of 2017!

I couldn't be prouder to spend the day with my friends at Dell HQ in Austin last week learning more about their commitment to innovation and design. 

But one of my favorite things about Dell is their commitment to sustainability.

Like the fact that Dell is committed to removing 16,000 pounds of plastics out of the ocean. Learn more about their sustainability initiatives here.

It's been an exciting summer exploring innovation with Samsung.

Back in June, I had the chance to check out FedEx's new, first-of-its-kind Samsung-authorized repair center in the heart of New York City.

I also talked to Samsung director of marketing Jon Wong about the costs associated with losing a phone for both the individual and businesses. 

Can't imagine a reality without your phone? (Me either.) So I spoke with Accenture's wearable technology leader and pioneer Brent Blum about the best use cases for virtual reality and augmented reality.

And when it comes to VR, it's no surprise that Samsung leads the pack.

In July, I got to tour Samsung Bus, which features everything from the Samsung DeX station to the Knox security platform to virtual reality.

The bus will be going on a nationwide tour to spotlight Samsung's latest products and business solutions, so stay on the look out!

Outsmarting Smart Devices

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Samsung. The opinions and text are all my own.

Some devices are smart, but not all are intelligent and certainly not all are secure. 

Back in May, I traveled with Samsung to the Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit, where I spoke with Erik Bjontegard, founder of Spark Compass, about how the company is maximizing the capability of smart devices with new information-based technology. See the full interview here

I also had the pleasure of speaking with Samsung's SDS' business development manager for enterprise wearables, Gabe Murphy, about how Samsung works to protect data on not only phones and tablets, but smartwatches and other wearables.

Talking AR, VR with Samsung

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Samsung. The opinions and text are all my own.

Last month, I traveled with Samsung to San Diego for the Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit, where I had the opportunity to chat with a dozen technology experts to discuss the impact of virtual reality, augmented reality and wearables in business.

The future of VR is bright, from improving public safety to training employees and everything in between. Check out my full interview with Librestream Technologies' Jereme Pitts and Samsung's Gabriel Murphy. 

And with VR comes great possibilities. Bharat Saini, founder and chief technologist of Hipaax, shared with me some of the advantages of wearables in the workplace. (Fun fact: Samsung recently announced its partnership with Hipaax to advance the incorporation of smartwatches in the workplace.)

I also spoke with Samsung's Wonjin Kim about what makes smartwatches help businesses run efficiently. Still don't believe the benefits of wearables? Just watch.

Shifting Gears with Samsung

Very excited to announce that as of this week, I am Samsung's new video correspondent, creating enterprise content for their blog and social channels!

We kicked off our partnership at the Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit in San Diego last week, where I interviewed several wearable experts and also asked them: What’s something you can’t do on today’s smartwatch that you wish you could?

Check out all of the answers here, and stay tuned for more on my latest partnership!
