Please join us for an educational, interesting, and fun evening on the Flight Deck, Pride Global & Russell Tobin's Penthouse Event Space.  Russell Tobin is one of the nation’s leading recruitment and staffing advisory firms with offices worldwide, including Brazil. The company’s founder, Leo Russell, a Brazilian, will discuss how he founded and developed his firm, and the lessons learned along the way.

Joining him will be Marcel Arins, head of corporate development at Neoway, a big data analytics subscription platform, empowering organizations to become data driven. Marcel spearheads Neoway’s operations in the US market with customers in both banking and the consumer packaged goods industries.  In 2017, he successfully led fundraising for Neoway of $45 million.

Tiago Compagnoni , Co-Founder of WeDemand will also share his experience. WeDemand was founded in 2010 in Brazil as Queremos! - a successful startup, providing solutions for both international and local bands seeking live touring opportunities. WeDemand launched operations in the US in 2013, becoming the go-to platform for big data and business intelligence in the live concerts space.

Candida Borges is the International Business representative of Zanna Agency, the first sound branding agency in Latin America. Zanna Agency is a pioneer in the field and has created sound identity for leading Brazilian companies, as well as musical and artistic projects, for the last 10 years. After being internationally awarded with Rio de Janeiro's subway case, they are launching business in the U.S.

Following the panel discussion, Pride Global will host a networking reception. Their conference space doubles as a reception center, in the best tradition of today’s leading-edge companies.
