TechTables is made possible by the most forward thinking technology companies


Hear from past public sector attendees in their own words!


J.R. Sloan, CIO, State of Arizona

"My encouragement to any CIO who's considering coming to a TechTables event is to look at this as different than anything else you've ever been to. Joe and his podcast are unique in the market. He really seeks to engage at a genuine level. I love the way he weaves together all the conversations that he's been a part of to be then able to connect us to one another in really unique ways."

Ryan Murray, CISO, State of Arizona

"Some of the key takeaways from the event is always going to be around community and collaboration. Everything we do around here has to be done together. All of our local governments, all of our cities and counties, all of our school districts, everyone that we're working together with, we all have to come together to try to make this thing successful."

Errika Celsy, Cave Creek Unified School District 

"Anyone considering attending a future TechTables event, I would highly encourage it, not just for the aspect of new learning, but for networking, for being able to grow as a professional in the public sector space. I was able to interact with folks that I didn't realize were in the public sector, and that I might actually have more in common with and be able to connect with over future projects and endeavors."

Chris Chirgwin, CIO, County of Santa Barbara 

"The caliber of people that are here has been wonderful. Getting to know them, build relationships, and then just the knowledge sharing. You know, just listening to these experts talk about challenges they're facing, the solutions that they're coming up with. I was wishing that several other members of my team were here because there's just such good content and such good information that I'm picking up on, and it's more intimate, it's smaller, and the ability to have some really great dialogues and conversations and build those relationships with peers has really stood out to me, and I think would be really valuable to any CIO who is looking to improve his or her abilities and just hear from others on their journey and what they're learning."

Cátia Pereira, Manager - North America, Sales Engineering, Kiteworks

"For anyone who's considering joining a TechTables event, I would say absolutely do it, especially if it's one of the live events. It is a very collegiate vibe, including the vendors. It's definitely an incredible experience. Joe is a warm personality. He makes everyone feel welcome. But the relationships that you get to build here with partners, vendors that Joe enables, it's incredible."

Brent Byrnes, Regional Sales Manager, ExtraHop

"TechTables Live was an incredible experience for me. I had the opportunity to spend quality one-on-one time with every one of the public sector executives over there, as well as other partners that are in the vendor community, hearing directly from state and local customer executives about what's really on their mind. And as I've seen in my career in public sector, it doesn't happen overnight. Relationships don't ever happen overnight. An opportunity doesn't come to fruition overnight. It's going to take time. I use this event as a springboard to do just that, to interact over meals, looking at beautiful scenery, engaging in activities, and it's a lot more natural... it's a very unique opportunity."

Chris Perkins, Solutions Architect, Splunk a Cisco Company

"One of the best events I’ve attended in my 18 year career. 

Getting to meet and learn more about so many amazing people in our field was fun and productive. 

These events till the ground and prepare us for deeper conversations, more understanding, and help us to find common language...

 Joe Toste, it’s awesome to watch you work. The work you do creates many opportunities for networking, discussion, and collaboration. Thank you."
