We are excited to have Jennifer MacDonald as our 2017 keynote speaker. Jennifer is the President of Dell Tech Laboratories and a serial entrepreneur. She has extensive experience in a variety of areas within the engineering profession, as well as business, consulting, corporate leadership, and entrepreneurship/innovation experience. In 2005, she founded Cenebal Gourmet Organics, appearing on the first season of Dragon's Den to pitch her business. She received a $200,000 investment for 50% of her company, partnering with Jim Treliving and Jennifer Wood. In 2015, she began working for Dell Tech Laboratories as a General Manager, before becoming President of the company in 2016. Dell Tech Laboratories is a Diversity Certified Women Owned Business, and Jennifer is a strong proponent for the advancement of women in engineering and leadership. Jennifer remembers attending the Women in Engineering brunch early in her career, and she is honoured to be our special guest. We are so so delighted to have such an accomplished woman such as herself as our keynote speaker!
