Next Meetup

How do you get technical people to lead and manage?
How do you fill management roles that arise within your business? What do your technical people think of the management roles within your business, and the people who do them? What abilities should you look for in technical people to persuade you that they could move into management? Does your business offer viable career paths for both technical and people focussed staff? We're at Ashfords offices in central Bristol for this one, meeting from 17:30 ready for an 18:00 start. We look forward to seeing you there. Andrew, Rory and Peter

What we're about

Threads enables scale-up of technology businesses by providing a forum for leaders and managers to discuss and pool their learning around issues that impact business growth - leadership, operations and people.

Threads run monthly facilitated round-table discussions, exclusively for Founders and Leaders, providing a unique opportunity to talk about issues that you face, or may soon face, within your operation. It's an opportunity to gauge your thinking and seek fresh perspective from people whose judgement you value.

Discussions are structured and pragmatic, unpacking a nominated topic under Chatham House rules. The conversation draws upon the collective real-world experiences of those who attend, including aspects particular to your own operation if you wish.

People always leave Threads with at least a few ideas to reflect on and potentially implement.

There is no selling and any networking is incidental.

Occasionally Threads run a traditional Q&A event, where attendees can seek guidance from an invited industry expert on a particular topic.

To get involved, come along in person - please rsvp via the Upcoming MeetUps page.

Alternatively, if you can't attend, you can always explore a topic further via the Message Board page, where you'll find a summary of the take-away thoughts from each Threads event.
