As a GC, your role is constantly evolving to adapt to the challenges and opportunities you face. In our past conferences, we’ve covered topics such as global expansion, privacy and security, board governance, and more.

For our TechGC Global Summit, we worked with our incredible co-chairs – Georgia Quinn, General Counsel at Anchorage Digital and Shana Neiditch, former General Counsel at ClassPass – to take a birds-eye-view and look at the past, present, and future of a successful legal career as a GC.

In addition to small group dinners and carefully-curated breakout roundtables, we’ll have a full day of mainstage sessions featuring Damien Atkins, Chief Legal Officer & General Counsel at Aura, Ramsey Homsany, Co-Founder & President at Octant, Vanessa Gage, General Counsel at Cedar, Manuel Martinez-Herrera, General Counsel at Bettercloud, and Eve Wachtell, former General Counsel at Altitude Learning. 

Here’s a preview of what attendees will learn during each mainstage session of the 2022 TechGC Global Summit.
