What happens when one promient guest speaker converses with 50 tech, creative, and business mavens? What happens when eclectic ideas are discussed over cocktails? And where would you find such an event? Right here.

As the name implies, the event is an Open Bar. We’ll be serving wine and Flying Monkeys beer. Food will be provided by Toronto’s famous taqueria, La Carnita, serving Tacos In A Bag and Mesquites.

All you need to know is Speakeasy is a quarterly speaker series where ingriguing guests come from around the world to talk with you, not at you. Our guests come from many different backgrounds and industries, but the one thing they have in common is they are all masters in their discipline. Lets just say, these are conversations you can’t afford to miss.
