How to Attend, Support and Engage with Austin Tech Future Leaders




The Event

In addition to inspiring speakers (e.g. Steve Sasson, Maxim Jago) and four interactive panels (LEAD, EMPOWER, ADAPT, and DESIGN), we will also have a variety of sessions that should be of great value as attendees seeking to hone their leadership skills and empower themselves to be valuable assets to any employer (e.g.Steve Skarkes’ Leadership session and Christiane Michaelis’ “Thinking outside the Box” session).

Convince Your Boss Toolkit

We realize that funding may be an issue for many attendees and would appreciate any assistance you could provide, but I wanted to point out our “Convince Your Boss Toolkit” that may be of value in helping our members attend the event (These tools can easily be modified to assist students in acquiring funding from their schools, as well).

Of course, great learning opportunities will be balanced with fun evening activities (the Bullock State History Museum, Scholz Garten) and interactive sessions (Improv, Battledecks, Chef Patrick Stark Keynote Performance).
