Hub88 Tech Talk
Nokia, Naperville, IL
Over 17,000 feet up in the Himalayan air sits Base Camp Everest – a gray, barren, rocky place that could serve as a model for camp grounds on the moon. Climbers arrive at Base Camp excited and apprehensive, confident and anxious – much like companies leveraging emerging technologies to improve customer experience.
Helen Yu should know: Twelve years ago, she scaled Mt. Everest to Base Camp, and two years ago she founded a firm called Tigon Advisory – it helps start-ups cure the strategy-to-execution gaps that threaten their go-to market plans. Ms. Yu will share four lessons that apply to scaling mountains and companies.

Women in Technology Career Meetup for September
We all know it is a jungle out there. This month we will discuss how to harness the power of “high-integrity” politics to fight back and achieve career success.
Using the strategies outlined in the book Survival of the Savvy by Rick Branon and Marty Seldman, we will cover:
• Deciphering unwritten company rules and how to protect yourself from hidden agendas
• How to build key networks
• Presenting your ideas so as to advance your career
• Gaining recognition for your achievements
Wait, you didn’t read the book? The book has great information, you don’t need to have read it to be able to participate and gain cutting edge skills to help your career thrive.
