ORIGINAL EVENT DETAILS:
The 5 Ps of Tech Leadership
Why did you join the Tech industry?
Often it’s because of an early and deep interest in the technical elements - e.g. programming, infrastructure, testing, etc. Sometimes it’s because of a love of the Product, and how our customers can use our Tech to improve their daily lives.
For many people, that love stays with you for your whole career, and you remain deeply fulfilled by it. For others, they may still enjoy the technical side but they get a bigger thrill from the people they work with, creating environments where talented people can deliver great software.
This is what real leadership looks like.
Paul will walk us through the ideology he uses to engage with the people in his teams, through the lens of his 5 areas - People, Product, Platform, Process and Practice - in priority order. Showing a slimmed down version of the actual onboarding presentation he has given dozens of times when he has been introduced to both new companies and new starters.
Paul has a 28 year career in the industry and has spent the last 15 years of that in Senior Tech Leadership roles within globally recognisable brands such as OpenTable, Salesforce, GSK and Cazoo.
His current role is his first step up into CTO for a small pre-seed FinTech startup called Kayenta, and he would like to share and discuss his current implementation with DDD London by bringing many of his team with him.
Yes, You need a Read side
At Kayenta, a treasury management company, we have adopted Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS).
Segregating our Write model for managing our domain complexity ensures us the high degree of data integrity our clients deserve. However, our Read side offers diverse product opportunities catering for a spectrum of requirements from low latency screens to complex APIs.
Join me to understand better how we craft a resilient, reliable, adaptable, consistent Read side that our domains and organisations deserve.
I'm the Chief Architect at Kayenta. My career is a continuous journey of learning and growth in technology. My greatest joy comes from collaborating with others to explore complex domains, unlocking their intricacies, and crafting straightforward solutions.
I specialise in Cloud Native, Serverless, and Reactive distributed systems. I thrive on guiding cross-functional teams to create customer-focused experiences while embracing the philosophies behind Domain-Driven Design, Product Management, Quality and Fast Flow.
