FALL BREAKFAST SERIES
Our Fall Breakfast Series will launch in October on the topic of cyber security. We will be tackling this critical issue from three distinct perspectives: National Security, the Corporate World and People and Culture.
Working titles are as follows:
* What is the National security threat and how concerned should we be?
* What are the lessons from Sony and how concerned should the corporate world be?
* How does the threat impact how we work, communicate and do business?
The breakfasts will be structured as discussions and will include experts from the policy, corporate and media worlds. Details concerning dates and venues will follow in early October. We have an extraordinarily talented and experienced circle of friends, so contributions of ideas in terms of participants will be greatly appreciated.
We have more exciting events coming up in November and December with details to follow.
