TPN Presents: The Future of Test Leadership - Frank Stubbe
1 Grey Street
According to an Australian report about the future of work, around 40% of jobs are at risk of being lost to technology change over the next 10 to 15 years. IT workers are not immune to this. Test Managers and aspirants to senior positions - sandwiched between relentless cost cutting, and promises of "doing it right first time" and "self-managing teams" - must accept that our future may lie elsewhere.
Frank examines these trends and suggests what we can do to secure our futures.
The presentation will be followed by a networking session with drinks and nibbles provided by TPN.
We wish to thank Test Professionals Network for sponsoring the refreshments.
TPN wishes to thank Westpac for providing the venue.

"When I started in IT we didn't even have computers, and then when I became a tester in the 1990's that role had only just been invented." Frank is currently a Principal Consultant in Assurity's Wellington Testing Practice focused on helping clients transform how they operate.
