The art of problem solving & making your processes more efficient


We are delighted to invite you along to our monthly WordPress meetup.

We meet from 7 pm and aim to get our first speaker underway at around 7.30 pm, this gives everyone enough time to arrive, get a drink and help themselves to the sandwiches provided. If you're a newcomer don't worry, we'll keep a friendly eye open for you and introduce you to the others so you'll feel welcome.

This evening will have 2 presentations each followed by questions. Between presentations, we'll take a short break followed by the closing remarks to finish the meetup. Things usually come to a close at around 9.45 pm but you will still have time to mingle and chat if you so wish.

Here's what's on the agenda...

Atomic Smash is a small but growing agency and as the company matures, it's more and more important that we are efficient as a team. We recently started to optimise how we work, so here are the steps we followed and what we found out.

  • 8:45pm
  • The art of problem solving
  • with Ben Everard
  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Problem-solving may not sound like the most rock and roll topic of conversation… and that might be so, but it’s at the core of everything we do, a skill so universal it transcends software, job role, even occupation.

In this talk we’ll explore the mechanics of problem-solving, I’ll share what I’ve learnt from overcoming challenges, recovering from failure and seeing the opportunity in problems as a developer and design agency co-founder.

Ben Everard is a developer and co-founder of The Idea Bureau, working with charities, social enterprises and public sector organisations worldwide, turning ideas into standout websites, apps and services that drive change.
