When in Texas…

In honour of SXSW, we’re putting an Austin spin on traditional networking and meeting Great Minds at a backyard BBQ. Part 1: “A life in constant transformation” is hosted by Guy Kawasaki, a Silicon Valley based author, speaker, entrepreneur, and technology evangelist. Together with Wolfgang Würth (Mercedes-Benz EQ), he will show us what it means to live in constant transformation.
