About the Talk:
When the word Leadership is said, what does it mean to you? Leadership means different things to different people and there are many conceptions of how to lead technical changes in products and in teams.
In this talk, I will walk through some of what I have learnt so far about leadership while guiding teams through technical changes. We’ll talk through what leadership means, and the link between the people and technical aspects of projects and what this means for the role.
