FIND YOUR VOICE WITH TECHNOLOGY: NEW YORK

A MULTI-CITY TOUR TO INSPIRE NEW THOUGHT LEADERS IN TECHNOLOGY 

October 15-16, 2015 

I think I can officially call myself a Techweek Alum! Since early spring 2015, I’ve been working with Techweek in various capacities, from speaker to moderator to organizer and now emcee. I’ve attended their conferences in Chicago, Kansas City, and now NYC.  Miami coming soon…

For Techweek NYC their team asked me to join as moderator and emcee. As always, their roster of companies and topics made me excited to meet my favorite companies as well as discuss topics very important to me.

Day 1: Thurs. October 15th- Moderator

First, I had to pick up my Black Pass for all the VIP events. (Now becoming a collectible item since I have so many lol)

“Future of the On-Demand Workforce” Panel (Video coming soon)

This panel conversation will dive into recent research and perspectives in the “on-demand” economy. The discussion will cover trouble gauging the “gig” economy now and varying estimates of it’s worth from Silicon Valley to more mainstream national news. How will the future of “on-demand” and consolidation of apps impact the value of this market, and the number of people working under 1099s?

What online platforms are shaping this new economy to make work more efficient and predictable?
