For the first time at Turing Fest, we're hosting small-group sessions, giving you the chance to get hands-on and learn with our speakers
In this half-day workshop, veteran UX designer Chris Messina and clinical psychologist Dr Emily Anhalt offer insights into what’s broken about entrepreneur culture, how things got to be this way, and why things like struggle porn create the delusion that this is fine. They will help you take concrete steps towards a healthier and more aspirational future. Through experiential activities, they teach the requisite skills that encourage safe exploration of vulnerability, self-care, and community, and will help participants kickstart their own ongoing emotional fitness regimen.
Taking lessons from the fundamentals of neuroscience, Kirsty's experience presenting in corporate environments and what she learned from a surprisingly successful stint in stand up comedy, this workshop helps people understand not only how to present better on stage and have effective conversations, but also to let go of their inhibitions, find the fun in failure and to create the confidence to put themselves out there.
It’s easy to think of our marketing efforts as a story of boom and bust, one big annual campaign after another — or no campaign at all, budget depending. In this workshop we focus on the scalable process that is content throughout your relationship with your customer — not to neglect a dash of kick ass campaign fanfare thrown in for good measure.
How do we structure schedules and get multiple teams working together fluidly when the goal is continuous delivery? How do we keep our people motivated and incentivized when the finish line isn’t the end? In this half-day masterclass on continuous product innovation, Jeff Gothelf, author of Sense & Respond, will answer all of those questions and more.
Working with cross-functional and autonomous teams, product managers have the opportunity for great impact on the success of their teams, the products they produce and their organisation as a whole. At the same time, the evolving nature of team in today’s complex environments presents a huge challenge to our traditional concept of what a team is, its purpose, needs, and ways-of-working.
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 full-day workshop we’ll look at some of that theory, share experiences and boost your ability to develop yourself and others.
