As part of our Girls in Tech breakfast series, we've teamed up with Medallia (again!) to bring you "Managing a Growing Team".
Join us bright & early for a scrumptious breakfast in the Medallia offices, conveniently located in Bank, including networking and an inspiring talk with Q&A.
Special thanks to Medallia (a disruptive tech unicorn) for hosting & sponsoring us!
