Friday March 3, 2017 | Drop-in Anytime, 8:30am-4:30pm | MEV Innovation Centre, Milton
Once each month the Innovation Centre opens its doors to Silicon Halton members. Whether this your first opportunity to experience co-working or your 15th time, join fellow Silicon Halton members, and Innovation Centre members, at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the MEV in Milton.
"Traditionally, society forces us to choose between working at home for ourselves or working at an office for a company. If we work at a traditional 9 to 5 company job, (the employer provides) community and structure, but lose freedom and the ability to control our own lives. If we work for ourselves at home, we gain independence but suffer loneliness and bad habits from not being surrounded by a work community. Coworking is a solution to this problem." - Brad Neuberg, first person to use the term "Coworking" and founder of first coworking space (The Spiral Muse in San Fransisco).
If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Topic: Marketing Channels
Following up on some areas for improvement that were uncovered in the January planning session, this month we will begin a series on the art sales and marketing with a review of available marketing channels and ways to test them so we can focus on the fewest things that will make the biggest difference.
The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments.
Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton. Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.
Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting.
Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.
