Inside Our Boardroom

Throughout the year, we’re lucky to welcome many of our speakers to our boardroom, where they update us on what’s new, share insights from their latest projects and presentations, and answer our many curious questions. The latest to have joined us are Business and Technology Visionary Leonard Brody, who discussed the coming automated world and what it means for employees and employers; and Kevin Breel, who explained how he uses comedy in his mental health talks to lighten the mood around what can be a heavy topic.
