Creativity That Works: Helping you think outside of the box
Katie Allan

As leaders, we are faced with many responsibilities, and it can be difficult to challenge ourselves and think outside of the box. Creativity can ignite new ideas, solutions and passion within a group. This session will provide some quick tips and tools to help you get the ball rolling. 

Storytelling with data
Fahim Hassan

I would like to present different data visualization techniques by using cutting edge, open source (free) software. Cost is one of the major barriers for students and entrepreneurs and Open Source software enables them to start-up new ventures or continue ongoing research with low cost alternatives. There are several open source online tools and platforms that can be used for data analysis. I will explain how one can utilize these applications and leverage efficient usage for their own projects, it can be either business or research.

Building Your Digital Brand: Using Social Media Thoughtfully
Debbie Yee

For many of us, social media is a very personal tool. We use it to connect to friends, share our interests or just observe. But using these public platforms creates an image of ourselves for the world to see. This session will review best practices for creating or maintaining an authentic version of yourself and the pitfalls to avoid.

Involved in IT and marketing & communications since the mid '90s, I found that this has given me an unusual perspective on the interaction between regular folks and the digital domain. I am intrigued by the personal use of technology, especially since the emergence of social media and how it integrates into our day to day lives.
