Working from home is fun. You can wear your pajamas all day, listen to Metallica on full blast, and make funny faces at your boss as she drones on during a conference call. But there is a limit to how much fun you can have cooped up in your living room. What if - instead of being confined to your house - you traveled across America while working instead?

That’s what Luke Newton (keynote speaker at the October 18 IUPUI Talent Network Forum) did. In his words:

“My wife and I sold our home and possessions, bought a 1976 Airstream that we renovated, and took to the road. For two years we traveled full-time across the country while working completely remote visiting over 20 states, dozens of beaches, mountains, National Parks, and ‘world’s biggest’ sites along the way. During the earliest beginnings of work/life integration we tested the limits of the remote workforce - using an array of saas solutions that enabled me to manage my teams and clients. For 2 years we were able to both create, execute, and manage complex marketing campaigns for some of the world’s largest brands from wherever I was at the moment. Some of my largest customers I never once met in person.”

Who wouldn't want to ​learn more about the inner workings of a red-hot Indianapolis company while scoring a sweet deal on delicious food?

Chris Baggott, owner of ClusterTruck, co-founder of ExactTarget, and founder of Compendium Software along with multiple other companies; and Dan McFadden, lead developer​ ​for ClusterTruck and IUPUI alumnus will be keynote speakers at the​ second Talent Network Forum Tuesday, August 9, 2016 from 3:30 – 5:30 pm.

They will talk about how investing in talent can breed and support innovation. This dynamic team will tell us how cultivating talent and investing in your greatest asset will result in success, innovation, and business growth.

As an added bonus, Chris and Dan are offering a 20% off code to all registered guests!​ All registered guests will receive a coupon code prior to the event that can be used for a ClusterTruck food purchase.

​Here's what NUVO's own Cavan McGinsie had to say about his visit to ClusterTruck earlier this year:

​"What is ClusterTruck? Well, it’s hard to say. To the people of Indianapolis it is the perfect solution to the question​:​ ​"​What am I having for lunch?​"​ To the food delivery industry, it is the company that is setting standards for how food should be delivered. To me, it is the perfect blend of a tech start-up and a restaurant and it is exciting. It allows diners to get quality food from nearly any restaurant concept delivered to their door and for it to taste fresh. In their own words, “ClusterTruck is made of people revolutionizing the way meals are ordered, prepared, and delivered. We are technologists, culinary experts, and logistics savants; all unified for the cause of creating a food delivery experience worthy of our community.”​

The event is sponsored by IUPUI Professional Development and Corporate Education. Staff will be available to answer questions about programs. Light food and beverages provided.
