Strombo is in Montreal

If you are in Montreal this week you might run in to this very friendly guy who will say "Hi my name is George, what's your name?" He's in Montreal at the very intriguing C2MTL 2014 conference. The 4 pillars of this conference are Inspiration, Connection, Experimentation and Celebration. At C2MTL, George will lead in-depth interviews with creative visionaries from the worlds of business, art and technology. Hope he finds time to cheer on the Habs in person while he's there. The conference is from May 27 to the 29.
