In November 2010, Larry Sampson, CEO of the NB IT Council provided us with some eye opening information about the challenges facing our province as well as the opportunities, specifically in regards to the ICT sector. That event was the catalyst that got the NB Women in ICT group started.  Since that time a lot has gone on in our industry:

  • The Premier’s Advisory Council on ICT was created.
  • Radian 6 was sold for $326,000,000
  • A $7,250,000 fund was set up for innovation.
  • With 2 successful Big Data Congresses under our belt, we are positioning ourselves to become a centre of excellence on Big Data.
  • NBIT Council, Tech Southeast and Propel ICT are going concerns that are changing the sector (for the better).

On March 18th  join us at Brewbakers when Larry will walk us about how the landscape has changed.

Register for free: Attendees will be responsible for purchasing their lunch – Brewbakers will be offering an Express Lunch Menu for our convenience. Please register so we know who are coming: http://doodle.com/r5eb8pxrb6dx77ty
