Better Communication to Bridge the Tech-Business Gap

Session details

The “Tech/Business Gap” is what we call the misunderstandings, for example, between the people building a technical product and the people who need to sell it. These often result in teams or individuals pulling in different directions within a company—even when everyone believes they’re working towards a common goal.

Among various factors that cause this “gap,” it often boils down to communication challenges. Even though we’re talking about internal problems, one path to success is building consensus via an external communications strategy.

In this presentation, I’ll talk about solving this problem by building a common vision and a plan for communicating it to the world. As a bonus, if successful, the resulting communication strategy will also help sell your products and services!

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
