  • Craig Lytle
  • Taryn Murphy
  • Tyler Kuhn
  • Greg Plum
  • Heather Cox
  • Cliffvon Howell
  • Darryl Chambers
  • Yah Hughes
  • Dr. David Carter

You know Plum as a channel strategy advisor for Markee, board member for the Technology Forum of Delaware and chair of CompTIA’s Emerging Technology Community. Also from the tech world is Cox, a Newark-based web designer.

Tickets cost $29. As this is an in-person event, all attendees will be required to fill out a COVID-19 screening card and submit a negative COVID-19 test. Attendees will also be required to wear masks and practice social distancing.
