“Successfully Integrating Technology and Politics”
John Bonacci, P.E., PhD – Fibonacci Consulting, LLC
Ever wonder why there aren’t more technically trained people in politics? For those of us who are technically trained, interactions with politicians can range from simply frustrating to totally exasperating. This reality may dissuade anyone who is technically trained from entering into public service. Our speaker has managed to successfully resolve this issue and will share his experiences with attendees. Specific examples will be given of some of the things that give technical people headaches when dealing with politicians. The discussion will also offer challenges and advice to the technical person considering entering into public service. This will enable a distinction to be made between public service and politics as they are commonly perceived.
John C. Bonacci is a former Councilman from Berkeley Heights,NJ. He has a BS and MS from Clarkson University and a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, all in Chemical Engineering. He is a registered PE in New York and a registered US Patent Agent. He has worked for USAF, DuPont, Mobil Oil and Engelhard, his last position as a Vice-president.
