Ninth Annual Think Big Forum
October 14, 2014
4:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Place: Chatham University
Topic: "Women Who Make & Create"
Speakers & Talk Descriptions:
Georgena Terry, CEO, Heart of Steel Bicycles
Georgena’s business evolved from a desire to work for herself without the constraints of a traditional corporate lifestyle. She likes to call herself a "seat of the pants" entrepreneur – one who follows her intuition and plays to her strengths while ignoring her weaknesses. Relying on anecdotal and scientific evidence, she created bicycles designed for women.
Lani Lazzari, President & CEO, Simple Sugars
The Simple Sugars’ story is about identifying a personal need that grew out of frustration with the options available to her, having the initiative to want to find something better and then the determination to make it happen! It’s not rocket science, it’s about finding an unmet need and then creating an awesome and unique product to fill it
Heather Knight, Founder & Chief Roboticist, Marilyn Monrobot
Assisted by her pint-sized robot comedian, Heather will describe social robotics, how we make snap decisions about the capabilities and intent of machine, and how robot designers can influence these impressions via motion. From call centers to mobile robots, we have emotional reactions to technology and apply social conventions to machines.
