Join us for the first of two fascinating talks on technology, part of our new
Innovator-in-Residence program.
Technology: Success and Failures (or why I don’t like the word easy)
Nadine LessioEver have something that didn’t work out? Or a surprise challenge that you weren’t expecting from a project? Ever been standing in the middle of a pile of pipes with some instructions thinking: “I don’t get it, this was supposed to be easy.” Or that moment when things worked out and you want to high five the world? I’m sure you have. Come by, pull up  a seat and listen to some anecdotes about projects that worked, projects that didn’t, and why easy is a myth.
