Success is not linear. Even the most dynamic leaders experience challenges and setbacks. However, in those experiences, there is much lesson and opportunity to redefine our strategies and TechTO showcases the complexities that make the journey all of what it is.

TechTO is curated to bring you inspirational stories where you can learn practical tips from leaders who have dreamed, struggled, and ultimately persevered. Our conversation with our guests typically reviews their career journey, the early days of their company, lessons from scaling and a few fun personal questions.

WHAT TO EXPECT:  

- Inspiring presentations on lessons learned

- Fireside discussions exploring the stories behind the success

- food and drink (included in your ticket price)
