More Information


Julie Lenzer Kirk is the former CEO and president of Applied Creative Technologies, Inc. (ACT), an IT solutions firm that she founded in 1995. In this in-depth interview conducted by Denise Graveline of Don’t Get Caught, you’ll hear about Julie’s experiences starting her IT company solo in the basement of her home, and building it into a 24-employee, multimillion-dollar company with Fortune 100 clients. Julie will also detail how she successfully cashed out of her company after 10 financially profitable years. Learn how she grew her company, the challenges she faced, how she structured her team and company for growth, and the tremendous opportunities that resulted from the sale. You’ll also learn about Julie’s newest venture as president of Path Forward International, an entrepreneurial consulting company and as author of newly published The ParentPreneur Edge: What Parenting Teaches About Building a Successful Business. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing after the event.

Arrive a little early for networking.

A reception will follow the program.
