In San Francisco, CA, Salesforce has been the conduit that brought Talcott alumni Samara Wenten (‘89), William Breetz (‘88) and former Board of Trustee member, Tony Prophet, together.
Although they work in different areas of the company, they’re joining forces for Talcott Talk -- a new program to facilitate connections and information sharing between Talcott students, alumni and others in the community.
Talcott alumni are a great resource for students at Talcott. Their fond (and often shared) memories of student projects and adventures combined with their practical experience and professional connections often offer the students ‘real world’ lessons that just can’t be taught by faculty.
Students and staff are always excited to learn about what these graduates have been up to -- often hearing about cutting edge research or innovative new projects that leave us wanting to learn more!
At least twice per year, Talcott alumni will share their stories and give us a peek into their world of work. This first Talcott Talk will focus on Big Data, Data Science and Visualization.
Talcott Talks will be broadcast live so other members of the Talcott community -- including YOU -- can sit in and join the conversation from the comfort of your very own home or office!
