Workshops

  • Mission Bay Conference Center
  • 6 & 9 October 2020

We're hosting three full-day training workshops before the conference to help you hire and retain top talent and demystify management.


Demystifying Management

Tutor: Lara Hogan (Co-founder, Wherewithall)

As a manager, you may find yourself floating in a sea of uncertainty.

  • What does success look like?
  • How do you know if you’re doing a good job or not, with such a long feedback loop between your actions and their outcome?
  • How do you set the right tone and expectations for your team?

In this full-day workshop by Wherewithall, led by Lara Hogan, you will learn how to answer those questions and successfully navigate these uncertain waters.

Hiring and Retaining Top Talent: An Inclusive Approach

Tutor: Karen Catlin (Author, Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces)

Does your organization face challenges in hiring technical talent, given the record low unemployment across the US and especially in tech? If so, you may need to cast a wider net during the hiring process and evaluate candidates differently. All without lowering the bar. In this workshop, we’ll cover how to be more inclusive during the hiring process and how to retain the talent you’ve worked so hard to find.

Managing Growth: Upskilling Yourself to Scale Your Teams

Tutors: Cathy Chen (Founder, Capriole Consulting) and Whitney Greer (CEO, RebelMind Communications)

Growing your teams is one of the hardest things you have to do as a manager, but you can’t grow a team without nurturing your own skills as a leader. In this workshop, we will focus on the personal mindset changes that need to occur from when you’re managing a small team, to when you’re growing and managing larger ones.
