WHEATON, IL--(Marketwired - Jul 19, 2013) - Tom LaMantia, Managing Director, Magenium Solutions, gave an invited talk on the topic of managerial leadership at the Society for Informational Management's (SIM) Regional Leadership Forum (RLF) that took place in Chicago on July 16th.

Mr. LaMantia shared insights and lessons learned, both professionally and personally, culled from his vast experience as a CIO and IT Professional, entrepreneur, inventor, business owner and investor.

SIM's Regional Leadership Forum is an intensive, ten-month leadership development program focused on creating authentic leaders. Since 1992 over 3000 graduates and more than 300 sponsors have found RLF the key to developing leadership effectiveness.

"It was a pleasure to be asked to speak again at SIM's RLF. Fundamental to SIM's RLF Executive program is peer-to-peer learning. Being asked to speak again to a new class of my peers and share the lessons I have learned from others and in my own experience is an honor," said LaMantia. "Personally I believe the benefits of RLF and its collaborative training structure and techniques are instrumental in developing exceptional executives. This collaborative approach helps participants better understand the subjects, and challenges we all face as executives, as well as trains you for the collaborative work you will do in your profession and throughout your career."

"Tom's personal story as a successful serial entrepreneur mixed with responsible corporate citizenship is compelling to any audience. Many insights were taken by the rising executive leaders growing through the RLF program," said Scot Berkey, RLF Facilitator and Managing Director of FullPeak, a technology executive management firm.
