Description

TECH AND... Productivity at Work: How to Run Effective Meetings (not only) for a Millennial Team

Ever wondered how the meetings industry got to where it is today? The answer likely lies in tech.

Series Overview:​ At this exclusive panel event, we host thought-leaders from a specific industry — such as finance, food, or art — to explore new intersections between their field and technology. Together, we discuss how they’ve been impacted by the rise of tech, ways they’ve adapted and innovated along the way, and what they expect to see in the future.


What You’ll Take Away:
Gain insight and inspiration from experts in specific fields and hear first-hand how technology is transforming their work. Expand your understanding of today’s tech-based world, and fuel your own ideas for the future.


This Month:
Many areas of business have been transformed by technology. Yet, we still run team meetings in the old-fashioned way that don’t live up to the expectations of tech-driven millennials.

Join our panel of experts to learn how to run meetings that engage your team members, foster open culture and boost everyone’s productivity.


Key takeaways:

  • Insights into how some of the most innovative companies run meetings
  • Common meeting mistakes, and how to avoid them
  • The latest tech trends and their impact on the meetings


Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Staying ahead of the innovation curve and being able to predict the future of tech in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.


Agenda:

  • Check-in and Networking 6:30 - 6:45 pm
  • Panel Discussion 6:45 - 7:30 pm
  • Q&A and Networking 7:30 - 8:00 pm
