We have intermingled our Ottawa Chapter End of Year Social event with an engaging panel discussion focussed on directing companies during turbulent times.
Now deep into the fourth industrial revolution and a troubled world - downstream of a global pandemic, with high inflation and interest rates, the plight of Silicon Valley Bank, tech layoffs, geopolitical uncertainty, and protectionism - CEOs, Boards, Investors, and other stakeholders have much to grapple with. This important session explores the strategic role of the board in ensuring the long-range viability and sustainability of tech businesses – a crucial part of Ottawa’s economic landscape.
Our event will be held at Hub350, an impressive, collaborative gathering space in the heart of Canada’s largest Tech Park. Refreshments will be provided; this is an intimate, free event for ICD.D members; Non members are welcome to join this special gathering for $50.

Registration and Networking – 5:30 PM
Opening Remarks – Chapter Executive Co-Chair, Simon Kennedy - 6PM
Panel Discussion – Led by Jim Roche – 615PM
