“This platform provides the chance to engage in more than a soundbite. To not just provide answers but to provide stimulus to thinking – to possible new trajectories and what technology can be the fulcrum to make them a reality. It seems like The Event Sessions can shine on issues which need to be discussed honestly – without knowing all the answers. Rather, trying to find a path which can helps us navigate towards them.”- Steve Martino
