Background Experience - In 1986 Mr. Wrobel built the first Computer Disaster Recovery Center inside a telephone office. In 1987, he was the first in Dallas to run telephone traffic over the cable television system. He brokered a Master Services Agreement in 1995 between the largest employer in North Texas (Texas Instruments) and the two largest incumbent telephone companies (Southwestern Bell and GTE). His effort included lobbying Texas Public Utility Commissioners and various congressmen to create what was at that time the largest capacity network to an end user in Texas. Later that same year, he leveraged a 1995 Texas law to secure “unbundled” telecommunications pricing for his $70 Billion diversified financial services client. This was the first time in the USA an end user received unbundled pricing, a full year before the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 was passed!
In 1997 Leo founded a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier that became the first to be certified in all 50 U.S. states. Leo signed up several marquis customers for the CLEC in the Airline, Finance, Services, Education, and Government Markets before returning to private practice and the Leo A. Wrobel Companies in 2004.

Noted author and technical futurist Leo Wrobel explains why verbal and written communication skills are key to not only keeping a job but climbing the corporate ladder.
Unless you're trying to land your CEO in jail, your disaster recovery plan had better be good. Leo Wrobel explains how the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 ultimately means that you really need a plan that protects your data.
Your small business can go from thriving to surviving in the time it takes for an earthquake, an intruder, or some other disaster to wreak havoc on your property. Leo Wrobel explores some steps that even very small businesses can take to prevent or handle a disaster and get back to normal.
