SMB founders, experts, and investors address growth strategies and technology at the Oracle OpenWorld Executive SMB Central program, October 3 – 4 in San Francisco.


This year, Oracle OpenWorld, an annual technology and business conference featuring more than 2,500 sessions and programs on the latest industry and product news, will include Executive SMB Central – a new, invitation-only program for owners and executives of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The two-day program offers a variety of educational sessions and panel discussions for both startups and growing businesses.

“For key decision makers attending Oracle OpenWorld, Executive SMB Central will answer many of the tough questions you face every day,” said Brian Moran, CEO of Brian Moran & Associates, a New Jersey-based agency dedicated to helping owners and entrepreneurs run better businesses. Moran will be part of a panel discussion at Executive SMB Central on October 3 at 4 p.m. PST. The panel, The State of SMB, will cover many of the challenges SMB executives are facing this year.

“We’ll focus on the four key areas affecting growing entrepreneurial companies,” Moran said. “The panel will cover topics like An SMB View from Capitol Hill, How SMBs are Making a Digital Transformation, Cultivating Talent in Today’s Workforce, and Improving Cash Flow for SMBs.”

On the panel, Moran will be joined by Karen Kerrigan, President and CEO of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council; Tallia Hart, President and CEO of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce; Justin Shriber, Vice President of Marketing at LinkedIn; and Chris Germann, Vice President of Cloud Applications Strategy at Oracle.

In addition to the State of the SMB panel, Executive SMB Central will feature panel discussions on a variety of topics, including From Startup to Enterprise: Follow the Path of Companies with Explosive Growth, How Future Technologies Can Influence Your Business Now, Five Mega Trends that Will Impact Your Growing Business in 2018, and When Growth Becomes an Obstacle for Business Success.

Executive SMB Central at Oracle OpenWorld is a complimentary, invitation-only program. To request an invitation, call 1-800-633-0738. To learn more about Executive SMB Central at Oracle OpenWorld, view the full agenda.
