Until the new Silicon Halton website goes live in February I'm posting meaningful things about the Silicon Halton experience here on my personal blog.
For those who don't know what Silicon Halton is, it is a group of people who are leaders in technology that live and/or work in Halton region. It started as an idea that Rick Stomphorst and I had in October and it's been fun so far. If you want to know more about the group check out our Linkedin Group.
On January 19th we had about 45 people attend. Joining us were Terence Young, MP for Oakville and Rob Burton, the mayor of Oakville. Full credit to Rick Stomphorst for reaching out to Terence and Rob and thanks to both for attending.
At each meetup we have a key discussion activity. This weeks topic was "what will make Silicon Halton successful". Everyone broke into groups to chat about what success would look like a year from now. After about 20 minutes volunteer spokespersons shared what they discussed.
Mike Druiven is a teacher at EC Drury High School in Milton.
