Announcing TI Young Professionals Live

I am thrilled to announce a brand new initiative for our subscribers who are earlier in their careers—free quarterly video conference calls on how to build your career in tech. 

As a founder and also a startup reporter for more than a decade, I have had a lot of exposure to the industry of consultants, coaches and recruiters who help make great leaders great. It is a passion of mine to share that information more broadly. (I am a reporter, after all.) And so, we’ve been working hard on a new series tailormade for men and women earlier in their careers. It’s all the advice I wish I had gotten earlier.

Here’s how it works. All current young professional subscribers and those who become young professional subscribers this month, will have access to a free hour-long video conference every quarter through 2020. That’s five calls. Five hours of coaching that tech CEOs pay thousands of dollars for.

All you have to do is sign up for our Young Professionals plan, and we’ll send out dial-in details closer to the call. 

If you don’t currently qualify for the program, have no fear. We’ll be making all the video content available to all subscribers in some way shape or form. (Subscribe to The Information here.) 

Corporate subscribers can receive seats for their employees under 30—a great benefit. To claim your seats or trial our corporate program, email [email protected]

We’ll be kicking off the first video conference next Thursday November 21 at noon PT, before everyone takes off for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  

The subject is a timely one: Advocating for yourself and putting your best foot forward during annual reviews. We’ll discuss current compensation trends and how to make the case about your value with some special guests. We’ll invite select San Francisco subscribers to join us in person. (First-come, first-served based on how many we can fit in our new office!)

Throughout next year, stay tuned for future seminars on Setting Professional Goals: How to build your brand inside and outside your company as well as Climbing the Org Chart: When is the right time to become a manager (if at all). 

Please join today to make sure you receive the dial-in details for our first call. Those who join by the end of the month will get access to our Q4 call as well as calls through 2020 for no additional charge. 

If you are interested in learning more or in sponsorship opportunities, email [email protected]
