Date for your Diary: CTO Summits in Sydney & Melbourne

Coming up soon are this year’s Sydney and Melbourne CTO Summits presented by Yow and Wheelhouse. My topic is on “Building a learning culture on a budget” – something I’m very passionate about. If you’re in either city and want to come along, you can save 10% by using the offer code ‘speaker_discount’. The early bird ticket sales ends on Friday the 27th November.

The CTO summits are single day day, single track events where engineering leaders come to connect with and learn from their peers. The theme is “Driving change” – how can you create, support and accelerate changes within your engineering team?
