Leadership Skills for Tech: A Virtual BBQ & Bourbon Event

Thursday, April 7th | 2PM ET


Your team is naturally inclined to develop new technical competencies. After all, their natural curiosity and technical aptitude attracted them to the industry. Unfortunately, technical skills alone won’t optimize organizational performance. Great technical teams, also need strong leadership skills including project management, communication, empathy, goal setting and more. The most effective leadership development programs take a personalized approach to coordinate the needs of leaders, and the priorities of the organization as a whole. In this session, we’ll explore modern IT leader demands, and share a roadmap for developing skills that last.

They call the Big Green Egg the ultimate cooking experience, and we feel that the best experiences should be shared. Join us for a virtual Bourbon and BBQ tutorial where we guide you through the intricacies of not only how to taste American whiskey, but also how to barbecue like a pit-master in your own backyard. 

Attendees must stay for the duration of the event to be included in the raffle immediately following the last presentation. We will be raffling off a Big Green Egg. The winner will be announced at the end of the event.
