Speed Mentoring 2.0 Wrap-Up

Thank you to everyone who participated in our second Speed Mentoring event hosted at Canon in Burbank! It was great seeing so many SOC members get valuable 1-on-1 time with a variety of Operators across several disciplines in a wonderful space.

Special thanks to the folks at Canon for supporting the SOC and providing us two great rooms for the speed sessions and networking. Keep an eye out for more information on future Speed Mentoring events and check out the photo gallery below for more photos!
