Chris Witham

Mental health - why how we work is as important as the work we do

Chris talks about his personal experience of mental ill health and the importance of taking care ourselves at work. This talk focuses on how we can improve our workplaces, recognise warning signs and take care of each other.

James Hall

Working in Digital at an Agency

James leads us through what it's like setting up an agency from scratch, including some of the technical and logistical challenges along the way. James tells his story from the perspective of a Director as well as an employee, as his daily work covers a mix of responsibilities ranging from technically delivering projects to representing his company through public speaking.

Sally Bridgewater

Agile ADHD - how Scrum (kind of) saved my husband's life

Scrum is a planning system used in many software companies to help teams work together. Unfortunately, no-one outside of tech has heard of it. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder which reduces impulse control and the ability to reach long-term goals. Unfortunately, no-one outside of psychiatry takes it seriously. Sally learned about ADHD the day she met her husband. She learned about Scrum the day she became a developer. And she realised that bringing Scrum and her husband together could be very interesting indeed.
