The Kansas City Bulldogs gathered for an exciting and informative reception, May 2. The event took place at Fishtech headquarters, recently named Kansas City’s coolest office by the Kansas City Business Journal.
In addition to being united in a really fun space, the evening also featured an entrepreneurial panel discussion moderated by Ryan Shreve (’02) who currently serves as chief financial officer at Fishtech Group. Participants were able to learn more about innovation and entrepreneurship from Kansas City area alumni panelists.
Topics covered included advice for thriving in fast-changing environments, how to learn from mistakes and adapt to move forward and how their Truman education prepared them to excel in the innovation/entrepreneurial space.
The alumni panelists for the event were: Marco Ilardi (’99), president of Adknowledge; Roger Obrist (’01), chief operating officer of Redwood Trading; and Jeff Poe (’90), chief financial officer of Mariner Holdings.
