Tendril®, a provider of consumer engagement applications, today announced executive speaking positions at key events in September and October.
Chris Black, Tendril COO, participated in a panel at Denver Startup Week. Denver Startup Week is the largest event of its kind in the nation, with 125 sessions and meetings geared toward growing and uniting the city and state’s entrepreneurial community.
As part of a panel session, Black shared advice on how startups can build the best team of employees. Black spoke on the importance of building relationships, driving product success as the secret to employee retention, the great energy interns bring to a startup environment, and why culture should be defined early on in a startup’s development. Denver Startup Week took place September 16–21 in locations across the city.
Black will also be presenting on a panel at the Association of Energy Service Professionals’ Fall Conference. On Wednesday, October 2nd, he will be part of a conversation titled “Can Big Data Equal Big Engagement?” that will examine how the vast quantities of data being generated by the Smart Grid and consumers can be leveraged to produce better segmentation, better targeting, and better results for users and utilities.
In addition to these events, Tendril CEO Adrian Tuck will be speaking at the Global Cleantech 100 Summit taking place in Washington, D.C. October 9–10. Tuck will be presenting with other leading entrepreneurs, corporate executives, government leaders, investors, and service providers who are shaping the future of clean technology innovation.
