Hackathon Theory-How You Can Implement in Your Next Conference
 

Want to refresh your events?  Looking for new and usable ideas?

It's time for a Hackathon!

Our speaker for the day will be Kyle Hillman, an experienced Meeting Planner and Speaker, who will bring the Hackathon Theory to the meeting planning world.  Kyle will teach how to implement ideas into real developments with the Hackathon Theory.  

The development community is no stranger to the hackathon, this short time sensitive result based event delivers workable software and potential new businesses. I know I can hear it now, "I am not planning for coders and graphic interface designers, Kyle." What if you could bring that excitement and structure to your next corporate meeting or conference?
 

This session discusses taking the hackathon model and implementing it in your next event. I discuss incentivizing time controlled sessions that not only create new ideas but ultimately deliver fully functioning plans to implement those ideas. No more walls of sticky notes, it is time to host a corporate hackathon.

For our Community Outreach activity we will be collecting items for The Beacon House in Eau Claire which serves families and pregnant women who are temporarily homeless or at risk of homelessness by providing resources for emergency assistance, stabilization, and prevention.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 15th, 2015 and join us for the October Education meeting at Metropolis Resort located in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Register now to join in the learning and fun!
