***Listening deeply and sharing bravely***
by Tess Cooper
Trigger warning: This talk briefly mentions sexual abuse at the start
During this talk Tess will share how trauma and social conditioning affect how we work, and how the simple act of listening and sharing bravely can unlock our capacity to build better teams, products and lives.
From inspirational story-telling to practical exercises, Tess's talk will take you on a journey towards building the courage to truly be heard and understood, and to hold space for others to experience that for themselves.
Tess is the founder of Collaborative Future, a social enterprise on a mission to build diverse teams that thrive. Specialising in work placement programmes, Collaborative Future connects growing organisations with underemployed talent and supports teams to build an empowering work environment for everyone. Prior to setting up Collaborative Future, Tess spent over decade building and leading digital teams across The Guardian, Comic Relief and FutureLearn, where she eventually became Director of People and Culture due to witnessing and experiencing a system that was built around a dominant masculine culture.
