Video Blog Part 3 of 3: CVCA 2008 Conference

Roger McNamee of Elevation Partners – An Unforgettable Catalyst for Change

Through our collaboration with VC-TV extraordinaire Kristina Tomaz-Young, the CVCA Capital Rants blog gives you part 3 of a 3 part video cast series of this year’s CVCA 2008 Annual Conference held in Montreal Quebec, at the Fairmont – The Queen Elizabeth Hotel on May 28-30th.

This was a record breaking year on all fronts for the CVCA, and the “who’s who” that attended the conference are still talking about the comments,  experiences and opinions shared over the course of the 2 day event. Better yet, we already started receiving great suggestions for next year’s event from this year’s participants! No wonder everybody is so revved up, with this year’s theme -Face of Change, the well renowned speakers and panelists, and the ever edgy Roger McNamee of Elevation Partners, telling it as it is, our members are pumped.

Part 3 of the video cast series, features highlights from the unforgettable presentation made by the conference’s keynote speaker, Roger McNamee of Elevation Partners. Roger’s wake up call and no nonsense, no holds barred style captivated the audience and had them wanting to hear more.
