Howdy! Our 150th issue, hurrah! Thanks for all your support
Lots of chat at this end about our Mentoring Circles - the first one is at capacity now, but it looks like we’ll have enough people to start another very shortly as well! 
Allistair Crossley of Coconut had this to say about his Circle experience:
“Taking part in a Circle whilst also launching a FinTech business was especially useful to me as I was able to raise a bunch of real-time challenges and get the group’s take every week, practice and report back the week after on results (CI with people!). By the end of the Circle I felt more confident, capable and equipped to discharge the role of CTO.”
If you’d like to join the next Circle and be a part of a tight and trusted network of other tech leaders, drop us a line.
We’re running some more Tech Lead Dinners events with Hywel Carver of Skiller Whale in Feb and March - have a look at our Events page to learn more.
Until next week!
