Final Toronto Girl Geek Dinner of 2008

The final Toronto Girl Geek Dinner of 2008 is coming up on November 20th at the Hot House Cafe at 7:00pm and PriceWaterhouseCoopers is picking up the tab this time around. The theme this month will be surviving bad economic times through innovation and the evening will focus primarily on a roundtable discussion, facilitated by Connie Crosby of Crosby Group Consulting, about how technology leaders can continue to innovate during tough economic times.

Some of the topics Crosby will cover include taking smart risks, using a downturn as a catalyst for innovation, finding a solid strategy, and the opportunities for people inside organizations and for entrepreneurs.

Crosby helps organizations and individuals start their social networking and knowledge management projects. She is an expert in social networking, communication and information organization. Crosby has acted as a leader in the Canadian legal and library industries, blogging, writing and speaking to lawyers and librarians, and has connections with social media innovators around the world. She is an instructor with the Professional Learning Centre at the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto, teaching continuing education courses on social networking tools.
