Auckland Branch Event - A survival guide to managing change with technical experts

>> Event cancelled <<

Technical experts are key to our survival. They have deep knowledge, specialist skills and ambitious solutions that can move us forward across a range of fields and industries. Surrounded by the right people, the voice of an expert is heard and harnessed into something ground-breaking that changes life as we know it. It all comes down to the ability to connect, communicate and collaborate. During this interactive session, Eithne will share the theory and practice of a number of change management techniques to help you influence successful change within your work environment.

For over 10 years, Eithne Sweeney has worked with subject matter experts and teams to bring their visions of a better world to life. She has road-tested multiple frameworks and techniques to find those that work best in technical work environments and why.

During this interactive session, she will share the most effective of these so that you can influence successful change within your work environment. If you:

  • Are interested to learn more about change management
  • Would like to influence a change in how your team operates
  • Would like to support your colleagues through an organisational change

then this is one TechCommNZ talk you don't want to miss!
