What Exactly is an Executive Round Table?
The Executive Round Table is a proven traditional practice that is exercised by corporations around the world to improve corporate culture, client satisfaction, and maximize networking strategies for guests involved. At MAKO it will be a “fireside” talk, structured around discussion based topics that are relevant to the industry at hand. In this case, MAKO will cater talks around the challenges and opportunities with in product development and entrepreneurship as a whole.
Our first round table will be held on Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 at 6:30 at MAKO’s Downtown Toronto offices. It will be led by our very own James Chalmers, Vice President. With a proven track record for driving significant growth and client satisfaction, he has proven himself both in Start-ups and with large multinationals. In this month’s Executive Round Table, we will cover discussions related to the challenges and benefits of “starting the Start-up” There will be set of questions delivered to each attendee prior to the event and they will be used as a road map for the evening.
