Our theme this month will focus on The Future of Technology in 2017 and beyond. Where are things heading? We are approaching the question of the future from the micro and the macro. For the micro we will have three young adults talk about their experiences thus far in developing their careers in the technology space. For the macro, we will have a speaker who will provide a view from a regional perspective about the direction of the technology sector.
