Let’s Dream Big and Grow in 2017

With the turning of the year (and my birthday — no gifts, please) January is always the time when we take serious stock of what we are doing and what we should be doing. 2016 saw so many exciting successes for our community (Uber Pitch with the Refinery, Stamford Tech Week, NE JavaScript Conference and many more), but if we really want to grow, we need to keep pushing and think about who we are and what we want to be.

Luckily our region is rich with capabilities. The people I get to work with every day in Stamford and around the region are remarkable and the diversity of experience, knowledge and connections these individuals bring to the party is second to none. At SIC we tap into the strengths of this community all the time.

So when we decided to have a special Innovation Roundtable on Goal Setting for the New Year, it took me about 5 minutes to pop a quick request to our friend Shannon Malkin Daniels, a remarkable wellness and life coach who is now an adjunct professor at Columbia. If you’ve attended one of Shannon’s events here at SIC, you know that she has a special capability to encourage people to look inward and come up with a positive point of view. And I was very happy that she was able to say yes.

If you’ve never been to Innovation Roundtable, this is one you won’t want to miss. Once Shannon is done with the Goal Setting session, we’ll ask attendees to share their goals and the help they need to make those goals come true. Maybe you can help someone out. Maybe someone can help you. We’ve been doing this every week since 2012 and the results have been outstanding.

It’s all happening on January 10, 2017  at 6pm, here at Stamford Innovation Center.

So come join us and let’s get 2017 kicked off right. RSVP here!
