Our 2017 Kick Off
Happy New Year to all. That may sound a bit dated already, with January racing past, but we are certainly pleased to be back in contact and invite you to our first TechTuesday of 2017. We know this will be another busy year (aren’t they all!), and our first get-together will be no different. We have two interesting speakers lined up to start the year off:
- Jenna Sudds, Executive Director of the Kanata North Business Association (KNBIA) will be with us to provide an update on some of the great things that have been taking place here in our Tech Sector over the last several months, and also to point to some of the next steps she and her team are focused on for the coming year.
- Jenna will be followed by David Perry, Managing Partner and Founder of Perry Martel, a boutique executive recruitment firm specializing in the North American high-tech industry. We have all heard about, if not experienced, the challenges of attracting and retaining top technical talent in our local community. We also appreciate the hurdle these firms face next in moving from innovation to successful commercialization. It is the latter that David will focus on in his talk titled ‘Hiring Greatness: Recruit Your Dream Team and Crush the Competition.’ A consultant, best-selling author and TechTuesday regular, David will share the approaches taken and the lessons learned by three local tech firms as they recruited key sales and marketing resources to drive their product launch, company growth, and investor exits. He will share some important ‘tricks of the trade’, if you will.
We expect there will be take-aways in these talks for everyone. Come on out and join us as we kick off our 2017 season …
