On Thursday, Kate Matsudaira speaks and inspires. She is Principal at Urban Influence and heads leadership workshops. She suggests that technology leaders often face unique challenges, including serving as the “face” of a team that most people do not understand. Co-workers often don’t know what they “do all day.” Kate also affirms how all employees are expected to be leaders regardless of their titles and will share strategies for leadership success.
