If the saying goes, “Lead, follow or get out of the way,” Charles Henson has definitely decided to lead. As the Managing Partner of Nashville Computer, Mr. Henson is in charge of daily operations, business strategy, marketing and sales.
Charles has trained with and taken inspiration from many of today’s top business leaders such as Nido Qubein, President of High Point University and motivational speaker, Robert Herjavec, star on “Shark Tank” and CEO of Herjavec Group, (a global IT security firm), Verne Harnish, author of Mastering the Rockefeller Habits and Scaling Up and many other thought leaders as well as motivational and inspirational people.
In return, Charles mentors and collaborates with a whole network of colleagues throughout the world who share the same interest of using technology to help their clients build businesses that are efficient, productive, secure and profitable. He communicates with these IT experts on a weekly basis, sharing information about technology developments, tools, security threats, and overall best business practices.
In February last year Charles joined 16 of these colleagues to publish the book titled, The Business Owner’s Essential Guide To I.T. and All Things Digital Version 2.0 17 Critical Facts Every Business Must Know To Maximize Their Company’s Efficiency, Security, Employee Productivity and Profits. The book instantly became an Amazon Best Seller with all of the proceeds being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In 2014 he won the Nashville Business Journal’s CIO award recognizing top technology executives in companies that used IT in innovative ways.
Presently, Charles spends many hours writing technical articles, giving Television interviews, speaking at seminars and training the staffs of Nashville area businesses on how to use technology safely in a world where cyber criminals seek to exploit those who are unaware.
To move that message forward, Charles also hosts his own TV talk show called InSecureITy TV. In it he and two of his friends, Scott Beck from Canada and David Rudduck from Australia, discuss security threats people face on a daily basis, without even knowing it. You can watch his program online on the RCH (Really Cool Humans) TV Network. You can click here to subscribe.
With all of this going on, Charles still finds time to be a dedicated father and family man. A busier man, you will never find, but he never forgets his true priorities.
