About the event

Have you ever received bad feedback? It can make you doubt yourself or even give up completely. Communicating your thoughts to others can be just as hard, as no one wants to cause offence.

If you're considering a career in tech, mastering these skills is essential to success. Coding is now a team sport and communication is regarded as equally important to technical skills, among top tech employers. But as giving feedback is so hard to navigate, many of us avoid it entirely which can be detrimental to your team and your own wellbeing.

In this interactive workshop, Dana Svoboda, will share practical advice on how to effectively communicate, set boundaries and share feedback in a productive, kind framework. Whether you're considering a technical career, already working in the industry or just coding for fun - this workshop will help you to hone your skills and thrive in the workplace and in your personal life.
