 How to Collaborate in a Fortune 500 Tech Company by eBay PM

6:30 PM18:30

How to Collaborate in a Fortune 500 Tech Company by eBay PM

  • Product School New York 1216 Broadway, 2nd floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This session will cover the complexities of working with products across the physical and software arena. We'll be covering how ideas and concepts become reality, how a PM works cross-functionally with multiple teams to keep a project flowing and how a PM continues to iterate and improve upon products after they've made it to consumers' hands.

Main Takeaways:
- Collaboration at a large company requires clear communication, empathy, and a sense of humor.
- Large companies tend to have clearly defined roles and ownership for each job type whereas startups these lines can evolve and blur. Being a startup person can help you to succeed and grow faster at a large company by being comfortable taking initiative and expanding the scope of your role beyond the job description.
- Working at a large company with more defined customer problems and collaboration with many teams can help you to be more successful at a startup. Working at a large company can teach you how to turn the large startup mission into more tangible customer problems to attack and help you to create better communication patterns that allow smaller teams to flourish.

Meet the Speaker: Alexander Meyers

Alexander Meyers is a Product Manager at eBay in New York. He has previously worked as Chief Information Officer at MacroFuel Food. Alexander became a Product Manager and found that his wide range of skills was a perfect match for a career in product.

At iwoca, we value our diverse work environment and equal opportunities for all our employees. However, we’re also aware that there’s a need for more diversity. The number of women working in tech is still significantly lower than most other UK industries. Just 17% of those working in tech in the UK are female.

We see it as part of our mission to help female students understand what the industry is about, and how they can become a part of the next generation of women leaders in FinTech.

Expect an impressive lineup of female leaders and engaging discussion about the challenges that women are facing, and the actions that are required to overcome these issues.

Everyone Can Code - EdTech Event

  • Halcyon London International School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This event is designed for teachers and/or those in education ONLY.

The workshop will be focused around use of Swift Playgrounds...

Swift Playgrounds is a free iPad app from Apple that makes learning and experimenting with code interactive and fun. Students can solve puzzles to master the basics using Swift — a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by the pros to build many of today’s most popular apps. The app comes with a complete set of Apple-designed lessons called Learn to Code. Using real Swift code, students solve puzzles and meet characters they can control with just a tap. By exploring and solving rich puzzle worlds, students develop coding skills that become the foundation of their programming knowledge. Additional challenges and connected device playgrounds are also included that let students apply what they’ve learned to new contexts.

Technology has a language. It’s called code. And Apple believe coding is an essential skill. Learning to code teaches you how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. And it helps you build apps that bring your ideas to life. Apple think everyone should have the opportunity to create something that can change the world; they have designed a new programme with the tools and resources that let anyone learn, write and teach it.

Fashion Tech 2019 - What’s Next? by Women of Wearables

Fashion Tech 2019 - What’s Next? by Women of Wearables

To kick off our 2019 meetup season, Women of Wearables are organising another monthly meetup on February 27th, and this time topic is all things fashion technology!

Using the latest technology can give a fashion brand access to unlimited possibilities when it comes to communication. Biotechnology has enabled us to come up with progressive ideas such as bioengineering using spider silk, 3D printing has affected the traditional design process, the materials, and the production of jewellery and accessories, while brands like Burberry, Alexander Wang and Ralph Lauren are using technology to further elevate the customer experience.

But, the fashion industry is also one of the world’s most polluting. Reportedly topped only by oil, the fashion industry is contributing to major environmental destruction – mainly because consumers insist on buying so many clothes at such cheap prices. Alternatives do exist. The solution lies in buying less and choosing better quality items that are made as ethically as possible.

In order to raise awareness about some of the challenges of fashion industry, as well as possible solutions and upcoming trends, Women of Wearables are bringing together five speakers - entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, legal professionals and journalists, who will share their views on all things fashion tech, sustainability, smart textiles and everything in between!

Join us for an evening of inspiring talks about fashion tech projects and networking afterwards!

Many thanks to our sponsors MHP Communications for providing us with the venue and refreshments for the evening!

* While we are an organisation aiming to inspire and connect first and foremost women in wearable and fashion tech, we welcome all genders to this event! :)

Agenda

6.00 - 6.30 - Registration and networking

6.30 - 6.35 - Women of Wearables - 5 minute presentation

6:35 - 6:50 - MHPC - 15 min presentation

6.50 - 8.00 - Panel discussion + Q&A

8.00 - 9.00 - Food, refreshments and networking

*Be advised that we will be taking photographs at the event, which we will be using in the future to promote Women of Wearables' activities. By registering for the event you are giving Women of Wearables permission to take your picture and post them on our website and social media channels as well as use them in other promotional materials.

London Tech Ladies: Brave Conversations - Bethan Davies

What brave conversation would make all the difference in your career?

So often, it is fear that holds us back from having the brave conversation that could make all the difference. This workshop focuses on moving through our often-unfounded fears of uncertainty, failure, conflict, and rejection, to a place where we can communicate effectively without blame or judgement.
Whether it’s a promotion, pay rise, change in role, development opportunity, or giving difficult feedback – this workshop will enable you to quickly learn the skills and approach to make a powerful case for change, and strengthen relationships as you do so.

This interactive session covers:
- Identifying the brave conversations we want and need to have
- Recognising the fears and excuses we make to ourselves that hold us back
- Learning how to move forward despite them

Through attending this workshop, you will;
- Learn a simple structure that enables powerful, objective and meaningful conversations
- Be motivated to take bold, immediate steps towards your personal and professional goals
- Feel empowered to ask for what you need or want, with less fear around hearing “no”
- Identify fact from emotion, assumption and story
- Understand and move past the excuses & fears that hold you back
- Develop and practice skills to give and receive courageous feedback

Note - LondonTechLadies events are open to anyone - men & women from any industry or background are welcome.

Invest in Women in Fintech, London

You are cordially invited to attend Invest in Women in Fintech, hosted by Tapoly: Insurance on Tap and Nimbla: Single Invoice Insurance.

The purpose of this event is beyond networking. It’s about listening to and fostering the female entrepreneurial ecosystem; something that requires support. According to statistics from 2017 (https://tinyurl.com/y6uomp2e):

  • Women own only 5% of start-ups.

  • Only 7% of partners at top 100 venture capital firms are women.

  • In 2016, venture capitalists invested just $1.46 billion in women-led companies. Male-led companies earned $58.2 billion in investments.

  • Women in the UK are half as likely to start a new business

  • Men are 3 times more likely to own a business with employees

  • Equalising women’s productivity and employment levels with those of men has the potential for increased GDP of 35% in the UK

We seek to make a difference, to change the stats for good, and to boost investor engagement in this sector. This event will feature a panel of inspirational keynote speakers such as:
