About the Tech Talks Central Team
Who We Are In Short
Tech Talks Central (TTC) broadcasts over the web covering all the hot topics and trends in the connected world and features interactive interviews with thought leaders, as well as movers and shakers of the tech industry. It disseminates information from inside technology events to its community of listeners, beyond borders.
TTC brings together tech entrepreneurs and broadcasting specialists who share a love for technology, innovation and science. The team combines an extraordinary skill-set including entrepreneurship, IT, marketing, graphics, journalism, statistical analysis, social media and broadcasting.
Dissemination for Awareness, for Understanding and for Action are crucial to the success of projects, events and clients. TTC’s strongest dissemination tool is the interviews it conducts with movers and shakers, from inside tech events, broadcasting live to its community of listeners from all over the world. With a reach of over 70 countries and an average listening time of 16 minutes per session, TTC interviews fuel the interest of an international audience, while remaining accessible, as podcasts, for a long time afterwards. Accompanied by a strong social media team it delivers ideas, statements and concepts fast and with an impact.
