What is the Tech Mamma Lounge?

Our classes include topics such as how to blog, making Twitter work for you and how to raise more money for your favorite nonprofit. Our classes are held in a comfortable, relaxed environment over glasses of wine with your friends. We are located within the Make It Better office in Winnetka.

What is a typical class like?

  • When you arrive at the office you will be greeted by one of our Make It Better staff members and your instructor. We’ll have snacks and refreshments available for you, and after 5:00 it’s a lovely glass of wine.
  • Once everyone arrives and is settled at our Tech Mamma table you will go around and introduce yourselves. Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you are taking the class. This is a chance to meet new people who may have questions just like yours.
  • Your instructor will then walk you through a PowerPoint presentation on the class topic. Feel free to ask questions along the way. Our classes are small enough to allow interaction.
  • At the end of the presentation, our instructors will follow-up with you about what you gained from their lesson. We believe our Tech Mamma Lounge within Make It Better is the most trusted community network in the area. We want to encourage networking and skill building in a fun way.
