About this event

Featured Expert: John Rossman, bestselling author of The Amazon Way series guides us through a practical approach to tackle the technology, business and internal challenges in innovating with the Internet of Things (IoT). As an early and formative leader at the retail giant, he shares key methods to success from Amazon’s master playbook.

Overview: More than just remote-controlled gadgets, drones can be used for marketing, real estate, cinematography, photojournalism, data capture, precision agriculture, law enforcement, and more. But if you want to fly a drone for your business, there's a lot to consider -- what kind of drone to buy, the basics of airspace management (our speaker is a student pilot), how to get your remote pilot's license (our speaker is a licensed remote pilot), drone pilot insurance, and regulatory protocol.

What You’ll Take Away: - Drone basics -- what's a drone and what kind of drone should I buy? - Airspace crash course -- what does it take to be a pilot? - Drones for business -- what is part 107? why use drones for your business? how do I get my remote pilot's license? - Other considerations -- insurance, asset/fleet management tools, logbooks, etc. - Regulatory protocol -- how not to get in trouble

Why It Matters: In the next 10 years, drones will create over 100,000 jobs and $9 billion in social benefit. Learn the foundations of using this cutting-edge technology to add value to your business, safely and responsibly.
