Cape Town Meetup – An evening with lightning
September 26, 2019 @ 18:00 - 20:00 SAST
Come join an evening full of learning opportunities. Instead of only one subject, we dedicate this month meetup to multiple lightning talks.
A lightning talk is 15 minutes long and allows new speakers as well as experienced speakers to share a topic they are passionate about and that will benefit our community.
We are still looking for speakers for this event, so if you have a topic you would like to share with us, please submit a title and an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need any help or support please note this in the email, and we would love to help you on your journey to becoming a speaker.
Lightning Talks that have been accepted so far!
Timing is Everything – Catherine Holland
Are you an early bird, night owl or somewhere in between? When is the right time to do admin, analytical or insights work? When are you at your best performance and your worst? When is the best time for a break and what is the best type of break to take? What are the Secrets of Group timing?
From Dan Pink’s latest book, The Science of Perfect Timing, find out how to structure your day differently to maximize productivity and keep your teams happy.
