Think Tanks

The Dell Think Tank program brings together industry leaders who are particularly vocal in social media to discuss trending topics impacted by technology. The goal is to create an open and honest forum that fosters collaboration and reveals unique community needs and opportunities for technology to play a larger role. 

For Dell and our partners, the social think tanks are an opportunity to listen firsthand, discuss business needs and foster relationships with participants and their respective communities. It also gives Dell and co-hosts an opportunity to capture meaningful feedback to better serve our various audiences. Since 2011, we have held think tanks on topics including education, healthcare, entrepreneurship and the changing mobile workforce. Events are in person and extended online for virtual participation on Twitter and via Livestream.
