DEC Corporate Talk on the UK's Reading Digital Revolution

  • Tech Talks and Corporate Talks can be delivered by any former Digital employee, anywhere in the world.  The purpose is to reconnect former teammates, enjoy technical or professional nostalgia, and share some of our finest Digital programs and projects with others who weren't involved, but would love hearing about your experience.  
  • Here is a link to the DEC Connection Zoom Talks page with recordings.  We are looking to schedule our next talk.  Talks are anywhere from 20-40 minutes long with discussion and Q&A following; total usually an hour.  You can use powerpoint slides or pictures, or not.  If you're interested in giving a talk, email us at info@decconnection.org.  
  • Corporate Talks from all former employees, worldwide, are also welcome.
