Position Description: 

Nononz is a dinner salon for technology influencers and leaders in Silicon Valley.

At each dinner table Nononz has a facilitator that keeps the conversation on the evenings subject and ensures everyone has an opportunity to participate in the conversation.

The role of facilitator is a unique opportunity to both learn what industry insiders are thinking at a strategic level about the most important trends in technology while building substantive relationships with influencers and leaders from venture capital backed start-ups, pre-IPO companies and some of the largest public technology companies as well.

Fantastic networking opportunity for MBA candidates.

Position Responsibilities: 

We provide training on how to be an excellent facilitator in this setting. This training will allow you to learn, practice and develop your group communication skills that will serve you well throughout your career whatever you choose to do.

After the dinner, the event leader from Nononz and the facilitators meet and write-up a summary of what the community discussed and learned and what this portends for the future in the area discussed.

Required Qualifications:

The ideal candidate has a demonstrable interest in technology and enjoys thinking about the implications of technology for how individuals live and how society moves forward.
