1           A doorway to outstanding tech leadership

What is this?

We asked senior tech leaders with prominent companies, if they think that there is a need improve tech leadership in their organisations. Secondly, whether they face challenges in helping colleagues to do so. 

The answer, was overwhelmingly, “Yes”.

The Tech Leader Series consists of content that will help you and your colleagues to progress with each other on a path to better tech leadership.

The content will help you to add to your knowledge and align your thinking with your peers.
Each series and individual session will be structured around a theme and topics. There will be six sessions that will consist of talks and discussions led by industry experts.

Each session of around two and a half hours, addresses an area of software/technical engineering leadership, to help aspiring, and earlier stage leaders.

We continually consult with these senior technical leaders to align the subject matter with the needs that they see in industry and also give them a way to let you know, what they wished they knew when they were new leaders.

The Tech Leader Series will cover foundational elements of tech leadership, however people of different levels will be able to benefit by participating with other colleagues.

Here are some suggestions of how you can structure your group that you bring to the Series.

︎︎︎ Team members from functional teams who work together daily, made up of mixed roles and experience.

What people are saying


We ran a Pilot session to test our ideas and get feedback from real professionals. Here is some feedback we received from people from Culture Amp, Wesfarmers Digital, Ferocia, Dius Consulting and Everest Engineering


“I loved how often we were encouraged to have conversations. I think you should lean into this! After an awkward minute or so the group got really comfortable opening up and I felt like we could have talked for much longer”

“The hosts were knowledgable and worked really well to explain their points and make it digestable.”

“I enjoyed the session and found the time well spent”
“I think the content was very helpful for me, I took down lots of notes and it was nice to hear the presenters' experiences and thoughts on tech leadership”

“The content was great, and spot on, IMO and some of the highest quality content I have seen on the topic. It was the kind of session I wish I had when moving into my first TL role.”

“Brilliant content…”
