The soft skills of hard tech - how technology and business can work better together

The toughest challenges in tech are the people issues – how we communicate and cooperate with the non-technical, how we deal with conflicts, pressure, prioritisation and working together as a high-performing team. In this talk I’ll share research and case studies on the specific soft skills that drive successful tech/business collaboration and leave you with practical next steps for identifying and developing the soft skills that will make the most difference to you.
