Used with permission One of my favorite days of the year is when the AZEC photos are posted by our photographer.  This year, looking back at the photos on Flickr from the Fifth Annual Arizona Entrepreneurship Conference on 11/17/10 at the Desert Willow Conference Center is no exception.   Over 200 entrepreneurs, investors, and community leaders gathered to connect, share, and engage while raising money to help others in our community find new hope and opportunities along the path of entrepreneurship.

Mark Goldstein, a well known market research professional and founder of the International Research Center helps with market research and analysis, actionable intelligence, and critical strategic support to guide us through  tumultuous times. On 11/17, Mark again stepped back behind the camera to be our official AZEC10  photographer.  And once again he did an awesome job capturing our speakers and attendees doing what they do best.

A plug for the man behind the camera:

Mark Goldstein

Mark-Goldstein Running a global consulting and information firm like  The International Research Center is a full time job.  But somehow Mark Goldstein finds time to serve  our community in many ways, both behind the camera at industry and non profit events and  in leadership positions at ATIC and the AZ Tech Council.  Mark is always ready with a helping hand and a smile when his friends ask for his skill with a camera but more important for so many of us, he is a  source for critical business information when organizations need it most.  It has been my pleasure to  work with Mark in his professional capacity at both CorePurpose and ASBA and when I need accurate and current research information – he is the man I call.   His company tag line says it all.  Mark Goldstein is an expert in Harnessing Global Information Resources for Informed Decision Making .
