Techpreneurs are often seen as geeky non-conformists, but an increasingly diverse and complex business environment means the need to read the room, to build trust quickly, and deliver information clearly, has never been more important.
In his talk, Breaking the Code, the entrepreneurial Chinese-Australian investor and philanthropist Bill Liao remembers his own diffidence when it came to recognising and selling his skills within the tech world. He says it isn’t a matter of changing who you are in a group, but how you are in a group. Bill shares the tools of success using examples like CoderDojo and RebelBio that help create long-term, trust-dependent, relationships within the professional space, and suggests ways professionals in tech can improve their soft skills to be all-round winners.
