How does one become a Tech Leaders Summit Speaker?

Technical leadership is a challenging balance of people management in the presence of demanding business and technology decisions. The YOW! Tech Leaders Summit is a unique 1-day opportunity to learn from other professionals in your field, share your experiences, and build your network.

Join fellow Engineering Leaders as they present their experiences and discuss solutions to culture, leadership, product and technology strategy and its role in the business.

  • Connect with like-minded individuals who understand the pressures and demands of technical leadership
  • Gain insights into how to manage people and how to hire smarter
  • Create and refine a positive and inclusive culture
  • Adopt better engineering practices, processes and architectures
  • Make effective business and technology decisions
  • Develop strategies to drive growth and innovation

No matter how experienced you are, it can be lonely at the top. It is invaluable to learn from peers and get a fresh perspective which can strengthen and challenge your knowledge and growth as a technical leader.
