Spring Summit: A rendezvous of like minded individuals for professional development and intellectually stimulating discussion at a corporate setting. We pick a different topic every year and invite a panel or a speaker to discuss the topic. This year's topic is Entrepreneurship.

We have a panel of 4 Booth Entrepreneurs. Come and listen to their stories, discuss your ideas and ask questions in a relaxed environment.  Entrepreneurs on the panel represent the worlds of investment management, tech start-ups, marketing/advertising and service industries. Their varied experiences will prompt discussion that is both relevant to people who have already started a business or anyone who is thinking about starting one now or in the future.
