CTXWFS Holiday Party and Presentation from Steve Pearson - Fast Track Your Innovation and Analytics for the Holidays
Are you competitive? Does it bother you when your neighbor puts up more holiday decorations than you do? If you want to come out on top, the proper information sources and methodologies can provide you with the ability to outshine your neighbors. Similar methods combined with analytics can be used in businesses or forecasting to yield the fastest, cheapest and most valuable roadmap for discovering trends, risks and making smart investments. You can outdo your competition!
Steve Pearson, a well known Austin consultant in the futurists community, will be our speaker for this amusing presentation. The CTXWFS will spring for free holiday themed snacks and munchies from the restaurant. This is also intended to be a relaxed social holiday gathering with time for discussions and brainstorming about what everyone has been doing and what presentations we would like to see in the coming year.
Note that this meeting is on Wednesday, Dec 17th. There is no charge or need to register to attend this meeting. You can order your own food and drink if you wish (and most people do), but please arrive early to place your order.
The meeting starts promptly at 7pm.
We will hopefully meet in the larger room at Cafe Express this time.
