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.
