Chris Beall – Chris is the CEO of ConnectAndSell. Chris has been participating in software startups as a founder or at a very early stage for most of the past 30 years. Chris’s focus has consistently been on creating and taking to market simple products that can be used successfully the first time they are touched, without taking a course or reading a manual. Chris deeply believes that the most powerful part of any software system is the human being that we inappropriately call a “user,” and that the value key in software is to let the computer do what it does well (go fast without getting bored) in order to free up human potential. The process of finding these solutions is more one of discovery than invention, and it has been a joy for Chris to have been lucky enough to have stumbled on a few of them.
