Following the growing concern about COVID-19 we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s New York conference and the workshops until August. We are working hard to confirm new dates for the workshops and these will be announced soon.
For more information and our FAQs, please take a look at our COVID-19 update page.
We're hosting a full-day of training workshops before the conference on leadership, hiring, management and more.
Not attending the conference? You can still attend the workshops!Workshops take place from 9:30-5:30. Tickets are sold separately from the conference and the workshops take place at a different venue.
Tutor: Karen Catlin (Author, Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces)
Engineering teams around the globe are growing, but for teams to expand, new, high-quality talent is required. And with more positions on the market than engineers to fill them, acquiring talent is becoming increasingly difficult. As an engineering leader on a growing team, it’s likely that you’ll spend the majority of your time recruiting. How can you ensure you're filling your open roles?
Tutor: Lara Hogan (Co-founder, Wherewithall)
As a manager, you may find yourself floating in a sea of uncertainty.
In this full-day workshop by Wherewithall, led by Lara Hogan, you will learn how to answer those questions and successfully navigate these uncertain waters.
Tutor: Meri Williams (CTO, Monzo)
People are hard, so why are they called “soft skills”? Much like technical skills, there is both science and art, theory and experience, to becoming good at leading, managing, coaching, mentoring & developing people. In this workshop we’ll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.
Tutor: Farrah Mitra (Candor Coach, Radical Candor)
Interpersonal relationships and healthy team dynamics are at the centre of the success of every engineering team. But what happens when something goes wrong? Difficult conversations need to happen, but if there isn’t a foundation of trust or if the conversation’s mishandled, then they can sometimes turn sour. It’s these situations that need Radical Candor, the ability to care personally and at the same time challenge someone directly.
