Leveraging Your Technical Degree on the Path to the C-Suite

Abstract: Conventional wisdom tells us that ambitious business majors make their way into boardrooms and aspiring technical folks lead R&D teams, but Trisha Price’s journey from engineer to the C-suite proves that business and technology are not mutually exclusive. In fact, a strong technical background gave Price the confidence and skills to delve into functions as diverse as product, sales, customer success, and corporate expansion. Price will discuss the levers she pulled along her “jungle gym” of a career to earn a spot in the C-suite at fast-growth North Carolina companies like nCino and Pendo, providing inspiration for the next generation of NC State engineers.
