This will be a more relaxed session focused on people meeting each other and sharing expertise in a semi-structured setting.

Instead of having a formal speaker, we will do several mini-roundtables on several topics. We will split up into several groups, based on a particular topic. Each group will bring up some issues / challenges that some of the people are interested in, and discuss it for 20-25 minutes. Every 25 minutes a new topic will be picked, and new groups are formed.

Topics to be decided / voted on, here are some potential ideas (we will probably end up doing three topics):

• Process - Lean, Agile, QA, UX, Product

• Managerial - Managing, Hiring, Motivating, Networking, Org Structure, Growing People

• Size-based challenges - Army of One, Scaling, Big Data

• Industry-Specific - eCommerce, AdTech, Analytics, Content

We've done this format a couple of times over the last few years and had a really great time.

Please come with some of your challenges or areas you' like to learn more about.

A group of us will hang out afterwards at a bar nearby.

Note: We will start at 6:30 exactly.

As always, a group of us will hang out afterwards at a bar nearby.

We like to hang out at Rye, which is at 11 W 17th St, New York, NY 10011, between Avenue of Americas and 5th. They have both drinks and food.
