Vocademy founder and CEO, Gene Sherman, has been invited to speak at three events this June, all of which are important to the future of hands-on skills education as well as manufacturing industries and innovation in America.
Sherman will start off by heading to The Big M manufacturing convergence in Detroit to serve as keynote speaker. This event is all about shaping the future of manufacturing by uniting industry, creating opportunities, and sparking innovation through a combination of speakers, expert panels, and hands-on workshops.
Then its back to California for BRINK in Palm Springs. June 5th – 7th, where Gene will be one of several speakers, dubbed “today’s thought leaders”. The BRINK Institute event focuses on science and tech, with expertise running a large spectrum from social media to robotics to makerspaces. Attendees and guests will hear these leaders speak on a wide range of topics, as well as engage in conversation with them via panels and networking sessions.
Several days later, its off to Washington DC where Gene will be a guest speaker on Congressman Mark Takano’s Maker Caucus panels as part of the Capitol Hill Maker Faire. This is part of the National Week of Making, and is a kick-off event to the National Maker Faire in DC.
This marks the second year in a row that Gene Sherman has been invited to represent Vocademy and the maker movement in DC. In 2014, he was among a small number of Honored Makers that were invited to the first ever White House Maker Faire, where President Obama announced the beginning of the annual National Week of Making.
