CEO Conversations with Scott Francis & Tom Kieley
March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join the Austin technology community in a fireside chat with Scott Francis and Tom Kielely. The winter storm that swept through much of the country and crippled the homes and businesses of Texans like nothing we’ve seen before was full of procedural successes and failures. Tom and Scott will discuss how tech misstepped as well as stepped up in a way few expected during the snowpocalypse.
