Wake Up Wired is a morning series presented by 18 Coffees, focused on exploring topics related to design, technology, and social impact from different perspectives, and powered by the talent and wit of the 18 Coffees community.
Every month, we bring in a diverse set of speakers and facilitators who can help us go deeper on the issues of the day through conversation and action (and caffeine).
Sponsored by Weber Shandwick and Fairgrounds Coffee & Tea, this month’s Wake Up Wired tacks politics, civic engagement, and technology ahead of the 2018 midterm elections on Tuesday, November 6.
Please join Weber Shandwick and special guests as we explore how digital influences today's business and culture over cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and conversation.
