TBM Tuesdays are a regular series of virtual forums, focused on key topics that technology leaders care about today.

Each month will feature two styles of event:

  • On the second Tuesday of each month, there will be the opportunity to join a live roundtable which focuses on collaborative thinking, innovation, networking and idea sharing
  • On the fourth Tuesday of each month, there will be a live case study, in which our hosts will provide you with an insider look into how they have optimized costs, mitigated risk, driven innovation, navigated disruption – and much more – using modern Technology Business Management strategies

The TBM Council Board of Directors and other industry technology leaders will host these interactive sessions, where we’ll encourage questions, discussions and feedback, to collaborate, learn and network with your peers.

Read on to see the current schedule – please check back for updates, as new sessions being added regularly…
