If you spend all of your time constantly trying to avoid failure, you’re unlikely to ever take any risks that could ultimately lead to success. It’s a tricky road to navigate as a leader, but if it happens you shouldn’t see it as 100% negative. Many great leaders we see today got there on the back of failure – sometimes often more than one failure and it's made them better for the experience. During this presentation we will look at how not to fear failure and to turn it to your advantage when it happens.

Key takeaways include:

  • How failure can shape you as a leader
  • How failure teaches resilience – A much valued quality in all leaders
  • What tools you need to adopt to see failures as learning opportunities rather than setbacks

Digital Transformation And The Intersection Of Business Strategy For Tech Enablement

Digital success isn’t all about technology – in reality it’s about effective strategy! But ...

Digital success isn’t all about technology – in reality it’s about effective strategy! But strategy can be an elusive thing to master – too risk-averse and you’re unlikely to thrive or maintain strong talent retention. The vast majority of today’s maturing businesses it is fair to say are focused on integrating digital technologies, such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud, in the service of transforming how their businesses work. The ability to digitally reimagine a business, however, is determined in large part by a clear digital strategy supported by leaders who foster a culture able to change and invent the new. What is unique to digital transformation is that risk taking is becoming a cultural norm as more digitally advanced companies seek new levels of competitive advantage. Equally important, employees across all age groups want to work for businesses that are deeply committed to digital progress – So how to walk this tightrope?

Key takeaways include:

  • How to assess what your business is actually ready for - individual technologies decidedly operational in focus, or a digital strategy developed with an eye on transforming the business
  • How to ensure the skills exist in the organization to make the strategy a reality
  • How to up your digital game as a method to attract and retain top talent

Improving employment participation rates for people with disabilities in today’s labour force is a critical global issue, particularly in the tech sector, where there are increasing numbers of open jobs and a significant need for new talent pools. In this talk I will share statistics, examples and strategies on the vast employability gap for people with multiple health barriers, disabilities and mental health challenges.

Key takeaways include:

  • How to reduce the barriers that could potentially be preventing a colleague with a disability to unlock their full potential
  • How we can encourage employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop employees with disabilities
  • How to identify appropriate workplace changes or adjustments to support team members with a disability or health condition to reach their full potential and thrive at work

When you think of jobs in tech, you might imagine a developer, engineer or data scientist - someone who has technical skills such as coding. Companies aren’t just hiring technical people though, they’re also hiring for non-technical roles in areas such as marketing, product, and design to name a few. Glassdoor actually found that 43% of roles advertised by tech companies were non-technical. During this presentation, we’ll consider the different options available outside of pure tech roles for people.

Key takeaways include:

  • Considering product management: The types of people that would be best suited to this type of role
  • Ever heard of UX design? Understanding what it involves and who would be best suited to this type of role
  • Examining copywriting: What it is and who would be best suited to it?

Pretty much every modern device and piece of machinery contains some element of code, making the ability to write code and programming exceptionally valuable today. The number of jobs for coding and programming has also grown to match this exponential coding explosion, with many people already into their careers now looking to learn to code. During this presentation we’ll review where to look to get started, how to find the best resources to fit around current role and life commitments, and how-to prioritise what to learn.

Key takeaways include:

  • Examining the benefits of learning to code in your current role and for opening up opportunities
  • Navigating language selection: e.g. Java, Python, Ruby, HTML, Javascript

It seems the stereotype lives on, where technology types are better left in the server room where they don't have to talk to anyone. The tech industry needs to break away from the 'tech geek’ stereotypes and show how it needs people with a wide variety of skill sets. Soft skills like communication, listening, and the ability to work in teams generally seem to be lacking. If we believed in stereotypes, then we would think all used car salespeople are slimy and out of touch with the populace.
