Hosted by AIGA West Michigan & Design West Michigan

Friday May 10th, 2013 8:30 - 10:00 AM

UICA 

 

Our second installment of the Early Shift will take place on Friday, May 10, featuring Greg Galle of Future Partners. Greg will be in town for two different presentations this week: the first at TEDx Grand Rapids and the second on another topic just for us. If you are unable to make it to TEDx, or even if you are attending TEDx and interested in hearing more from Greg, this event is for you. (Feel free to tune into the TEDx live stream around 3:30 PM on May 9 to hear what he has to say in his first talk as well.)

Doors open at 8:30 AM for coffee and conversation, followed by a short talk starting at 9 AM. After Greg's talk, there will be a casual Q & A session, and we’ll wrap up by 10:00 so we can get to work.
