Moderated by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke, this invite-only event featured informative tech talks on some of Amex's cutting edge products, an inspiring panel discussion that included some of American Express' women tech leaders, an audience Q&A and plenty of time for our over fifty attendees to network with our speakers, other members of the American Express team and each other.
Speakers at the event included:
- Ann Barron-DiCamillo - Vice President, IT Risk & Information Security
- Scott Parker, Vice President of Engineering, Commercial Services Technology
- Amaris Connor, Senior Product Manager
- Eva Stamos - Vice President, Technology Development
- Gabriella Poczo - Vice President, Engineering
- Yogaraj Jayaprakasam - Vice President, Head of Enterprise Platforms - Sales & Marketing Digital Transformation
