The SIGUCCS 2022 Conference recently announced the opening plenary keynote speaker. SIGUCCS Hall of Fame award recipient Chris King will share his insights on leadership, organizational change, communication, and customer service & support.
Chris attended his first SIGUCCS conference in the fall of 2004. As an English major who got drawn into IT work, the idea of having an IT paper published ticked off all the right boxes, and he presented his first paper with SIGUCCS in 2008. Since then, he has had many roles in the organization (while still writing papers), including reviewing papers, participating on various conference committees (Social Media in 2015, Program co-chair in 2016, and Track Chair in 2017), participating in the Mentoring program (his true love), and even a brief stint as a Board member.
When asked to comment on his recent Hall of Fame award, Chris shared:
Chris owes so much to SIGUCCS. It nurtured his love of technology, honed his skills at speaking, writing, and reviewing, and showed him a view of how technology can promote higher education across the world. The relationships formed through SIGUCCS were lifetime friendships, and he will always cherish them.
Many of us have enjoyed Chris’ presentations at previous conferences. His engaging talks include “The dirty Hungarian phrasebook of tech support”, “The path to Google: selling ice to eskimos”, and “Logos: the power of the word in IT support”.
