Below is a brief introduction of the speakers we have lined up for you, as well as reveal what's on the menu for those joining us for dinner.
YYX Toronto Value Meeting Finalists
Started by James East in 2015, the YYX Toronto Value Meeting was born out of a desire to reconnect with old acquaintances, make new connections, and more importantly, create a meeting space for idea sharing and challenging concepts with a small group of attendees. Presenters are given 10 minutes to speak, followed by a quick Q&A from the group.
The top presentations from the YYX Toronto Value Meeting will present their ideas to our group with a brief Q&A at the end.
