Day: 29th September
Join us for an interactive careers panel with three top tech speakers. The event will cover how to move from individual contributor to manager. Lightening talk topics will cover: managing data teams, getting the best out of your data teams, and stepping into or out of management roles.
Lightning talk 1:
Niclas Thomas, Gousto
Functional Management in a Cross-Functional World
Cross-functional delivery offers a great way to build data products, but makes the management of a functional discipline more difficult. In this talk, I’ll focus on how to get the best out of a data science team as a functional leader, when your data scientists are embedded in cross-functional squads.
Lightning talk 2:
Katie Johnson, MVF
Why management isn’t for everyone
After a year of leading a Data & Analytics function, I decided to leave management and become a Data Scientist again. In this talk, I’ll share the reasons behind my decision, and three questions every Data Scientist should ask themselves before stepping into management.
Lightning talk 3:
Tim Park, AO
Learning to Let Go
When moving into a team lead role one of the biggest surprises for me was how quickly I lost the time to be hands on with technical work. In this talk, I’ll give a short version of how I came to terms with this by reassessing my priorities and realising that Data Scientists aren’t that different from toddlers.
