Choice Overload: Selecting the Right Tools & Platforms

September 15, 2022 @ 8:00 AM9:00 AM UTC-8

An interactive discussion aimed at identifying which tools and platforms are right for you, your team, and your organization.

With a multitude of tools and platforms at our disposal to track user journeys and other key metrics, identifying which tools to use – and defining when to use one tool over another – can be challenging. This interactive discussion, led by Conveners.org members Patty Simonton and Emanuele Musa, will identify some of the lessons they have learned throughout their professional journeys and what has (and has not) worked for them and their teams. We’ll hear from both sides of the coin as Emanuele speaks to his experience as CEO and Co-Founder of accelerator management software, Babele, and Patty shares her experience as Director of Bethesda Green’s Be Green Business Innovation Lab.
