Howdy! Welcome to the week
This week we’ll be recapping some of the amazing Spotlight interviews some of CTO Craft Con’s keynote speakers gave us - there’s some real gold in here, so well worth a look if you haven’t seen them yet.
Our CTO Craft Bytes event this Friday will be on the topic of Tech Due Diligence in the lead up to an exit - if you’re in the process of preparing for an investment, IPO or exit, this is going to be a must-see.
I came across a brilliant, thought-provoking LinkedIn post by Dan McNeil over the weekend, which discussed the inclusivity of Christmas parties, drinks and other social excursions. Many of us are just not energised by this, and can feel excluded and embarrassed when they become part of the culture. If you’re planning Holiday celebrations, spare a thought for the introverts and socially anxious in your team, please!
Until next week,
Andy @ CTO Craft
