A senior program manager from a design and innovation strategy team at Google will be the guest speaker at the Malcom Center in Kīhei on Thursday, February 2 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Jen Chu will talk about what the future might look like in a remote work environment that includes immersive experiences, such as virtual reality.
Chiu has worked in the past as a management consultant for a number of companies and non-profit organizations, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. His work combines creativity, curiosity and a spirit of experimentation with measurable results, according to an announcement from the event.
“I’m just as driven to lead and roll up my sleeves in planning and execution,” she said. “I enjoy bringing clarity and organization to ambiguous spaces and building teams from scratch.”
She will also talk about her winding and diverse journey to and into high tech.
His speech is sponsored by Maui County and the nonprofit Maui Economic Development Council, a group that has helped bring high-tech companies to Valley Island.
