Tania will be exploring some of the key ingredients of starting a tech consulting and [ruby] product business, some patterns for success and the biggest risks.

Tania is the brainchild behind Infoware Studios and its innovative solutions. She has headed up a number of small businesses prior to starting Infoware Studios and this is 3rd time lucky. She is a serial entrepreneur and loves making organisations a better place to work and building software products to solve those problems. Tania brings with her a passion for Software, Mentoring and 15 years in IT. She has experience in various roles ranging from developer, business analyst, development manager, CTO and CIO (acting). At the moment her focus is on growing people on a personal level at Infoware Studios, letting people face their dragons. She is also passionate about assisting other entrepreneurs to succeed.


We usually meet up in the restaurant at Higher Ground and move into a board room at about 7'ish

Travel along William Nicol Drive till you reach the Peter Place Road in the suburb of Bryanston. Turn into Peter Place Road and continue up the road. You will find the entrance to Higher Ground / One & Only Club on your left hand side

    Did anyone attending happen to record the presentation? And can we consider recording future presentations for members who cant attend on the evening?
