You’ll want to head to Philly in May to hear from these speakers at Introduced

Take a first look at our confirmed speakers and community session organizers for Technical.ly's conference — including a very special panel announcement concerning a certain viral mascot.

IntroducedPhilly Tech Week’s one-day conference reflecting Technical.ly’s daily editorial content, has something for everyone — including those who don’t live in Philly.

Whether you attended yourself in 2018 or have heard about the inaugural year through friends or colleagues, we want you at this year’s event — or we at least want to make sure you experience some FOMO if you’re not there. (Just kidding … kinda.)

The PTW19 team is working hard behind the scenes to top last year (which will be difficult, to be honest). And while we’re not quite ready to announce a full schedule, we want to share a first look at some of the speakers we’ve confirmed.

These awesome speakers are already confirmed to participate:

In really exciting news, we’re organizing a panel discussion with the brains behind the now-beloved Gritty. The marketing team behind the Philadelphia Flyers’ mascot will share their process and how they’ve handled and built off of the viral success of the Flyers’ mascot.

A unique piece of Introduced is that, similar to Philly Tech Week’s community calendar, we allow community organizers to program a select number of sessions within Introduced. We at Technical.ly know we’re not the experts on everything, so this helps us to get diverse perspectives and make our sessions that much more interesting and collaborative.

More exciting news about the day:

  • We’re working with Sara Mohazzebi who was previously the editor-in-residence for the launch of the digital division of Reese Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine. Now launching her own media and production company, Think Free, Sara will bring together a panel to discuss storytelling and digital content.
  • Hopeworks (which brought you a conversation on equity in tech last year) is rejoining us to take the conversation one step further. Hopeworks alumni who have entered the tech field will join their current supervisors to describe what making the tech workspace diverse really looks like.
  • NeuroFlow, a new participant this year, will be organizing an important and timely conversation around mental health in the workplace.
  • Another returning organizer, Navigate, will continue a focus on design thinking, this year with a case study with Devetta James, the senior VP for customer operations at AmerisourceBergen.
  • Our friends at ImpactPHL are also getting on the Intro train, organizing a discussion around social entrepreneurship and impact investing.

Plus stay tuned for speaker announcements from some of our incredible sponsors of this year’s event. We’re cooking up lots of exciting ideas with these groups that we’re hoping to share with you soon.
