Wires Uncrossed-Helping Agile teams sustain their course by leveraging language

August 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Originally from Ireland, Eithne (pronounced Eth-na) has spent over fifteen years helping technical teams overcome the barriers of language, culture and distance to communicate effectively and build strong connections.

When sailing a small yacht from New Zealand to Ireland with her CTO husband Myles, they both realised the importance of speaking a common language to achieve a goal. In this talk, Eithne draws on this experience to explain the common communication issues faced by technical teams, and how they can be overcome.

Eithne is a director and co-founder of Wires Uncrossed, a business dedicated to helping technical teams connect.
