Maker Faire Westport
Apr 22 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The first official Maker Faire event in Connecticut was in Westport on Saturday, April 28, 2012. The SIXTH Maker Faire Westport will be on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10am to 4pm.

At The Westport Library and adjacent Jesup Green, Makers of all types will converge in Westport for a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness — a celebration of the Maker movement.

The Maker Faire Westport is presented by REMARKABLE STEAM in partnership with The Westport Library.

The Maker Faire Westport is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.

Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.

Titans Speaker Series: Meg Whitman
May 2 @ 7:30 am – 9:30 am

On Tuesday, May 2 at 7:30 a.m., Family Centers will welcome Meg Whitman, Hewlett Packard Enterprise President & CEO, as the latest speaker in its Titans Series.  The event will be held at the Stamford Marriott, located at 243 Tresser Blvd. in Stamford.

The event is chaired by Nancy Casserley

Keeping with its tradition of bringing America’s greatest innovators, newsmakers and influencers to Fairfield County, Family Centers’ Titans Speaker Series breakfast with Meg Whitman will focus on the rapid growth of the technology industry.  Ms. Whitman will also draw upon her own experiences to discuss leadership, success and management.

Tickets start at $100, and all proceeds benefit the health, education and human service programs Family Centers offers to more than 23,000 children, families and individuals across lower Fairfield County.  Several exciting sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Since her appointment as HP’s President & CEO in 2011, Ms. Whitman has led the company’s turnaround and subsequent separation into two companies – Hewlett Packard Enterprise and HP Inc.  She also instilled a renewed focus on HP’s Research & Development Division.

Ms. Whitman also served at President & CEO of eBay Inc. from 1998-2008.  During that time, she oversaw the company’s growth from 30 employees and $4 million in annual revenue to more than 15,000 employees and over $8 billion in annual revenue.
