Attendees will learn to confidently 'talk tech' with hiring managers, colleagues, and candidates. 

Being able to converse with technical colleagues is a critical skill. Whether you are a CHRO in strategy meetings with your CTO, an HR Business Partner working with a Development Manager to dial in headcount, or a recruiter hiring for technical roles, it is essential that you are able to discuss technical elements of a project with confidence. In this era of rapid change, it is time to reduce the drag and resulting missed signals by being able to meet your technical counterparts where they are. It is essential for you to be able to ‘talk tech’ with credibility. Join Alison Daley, Founder & CEO of Recruiting Innovation, as she takes you into the world of technology with her roadmap and decoder ring as your guide. Leveraging her Alignment Framework™, Daley has cracked the code on how to translate what technologists do so that you can go into your next technical meeting with confidence and credibility.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the fundamental five step workflow of the software development process.
  • Review the mental models of technologists, their drivers, and how those play out at work.
  • Discover how to leverage this knowledge to ask probing questions and uncover critical information so that you can do your job more effectively.

This session is for anyone who has to guide, collaborate with, or hire technologists as part of their work. If you’re ready to banish the deer-in-headlights feeling when talking tech shop, this session is for you.
