You're invited to join Dean Diane Gayeski '74 and other Roy H. Park School of Communications alumni for a roundtable event on Wednesday, July 16, hosted by iRobot at their corporate headquarters in Bedford, Massachusetts.
This is the latest in our series of roundtables in media innovation hosted by the Park School in various cities, which offer an opportunity for you to learn about trends in your industry and to network with like-minded professionals and IC alumni.
You've probably seen the ads for the little floor-sweeping robots, or you may have one yourself. iRobot creates these -- but they're doing a lot more that has great potential for business communications. The event at iRobot, which focuses on the theme, "Extending Human Presence with Technology," is made possible by the Park School's connection with John Latini, Parent '17, a sales and business development executive at iRobot and the father of a sophomore integrated marketing communications student.
The event will include a presentation and discussion, a tour of the on-site robot museum, and a demonstration of iRobot's Ava 500, a video collaboration robot. Additionally, Doug Weisman ’78, Parent '06, chairman of VideoLink, will talk about services and trends in broadcast quality video remotes, and Dean Gayeski give a brief update on Ithaca College and the Park School. Light snacks will be provided.
Space is limited! We keep these groups small to facilitate an active dialogue and networking among alums, so please let us know as soon as possible if you can attend by visiting the alumni website.
We hope to see you there!
Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm
