NUVO Network is thrilled to launch a new initiative, NUVO Talks.
NUVO Talks are interactive experiences that connect ideas with action. Through immersive engagements with local practitioners, alongside panel discussions in which thought leaders outline emergent trends, NUVO Talks provides opportunities for the community to encounter innovative and creative solutions.
The inaugural NUVO Talks events will be in May and June.
On May 22, 2019, we are kicking off with a Town Hall What Does Technology Mean For Democracy, hosted by The Honourable Karina Gould – Member of Parliament for Burlington, and federal Minister of Democratic Institutions.
The Town Hall will include a panel discussion on the role of government, net neutrality, and regulatory impact on business in the digital age.
The panel will include:
