Becoming a successful technical leader requires a new set of tools, experiences and skills that compliment your natural talents. This intense one-day workshop uncovers the common pitfalls in transitioning from engineer to leader and will equip you with the skills and knowledge to build, grow, scale and lead an exceptional engineering team.
Chris Iona is the founder of Future Pass, and has spent the past 14 years building, leading and scaling some of Australia’s best startups. His most recent role was VP of Engineering at Hipages, which saw him grow the team from 5 to 30, transforming the technology stack and tech culture to leverage cloud and modern practices. This led to a significant increase in service availability, deployments and velocity. Prior to that, Chris was an Engineering Director at Bigcommerce, and in that time helped grow the team through fast and strong growth. Chris was listed on AIM’s 30–under-30 list for excellence in Management, and often presents at meetups, workshops and conferences.
