Abi’s Tweet Highlights #6

It’s been a while since I have done this. Welcome to my end of the year 2020 public tweets retrospective!

Last rounds before tier 4 #TeamDelivery #WeAreTechNation

2020 Tweet highlights

🤩 I’m so excited to say I had the best time building and delivering the Tech Nation’s Cyber 2.0 programme. Of course, we had a very different plan in February, but we virtually converted the whole programme.

  • Board & Chairs with Stephen Kelly (Chair, Tech Nation) and Jason du Preez ( CEO and Co-Founder of Privitar) — they shared their war stories on managing a board when scaling. We encourage Chatham House Rule meaning our speakers and cohort founders can discuss as honestly and transparent in a safe space.
  • Lobster Tales with Adam Hale — he shared how he scaled Fairsail, taking it from 13 people to 200+ in 4 years.
  • We hosted the first Cyber Young Leaders Workshop for the non-c-suit cohort members. Something close to my heart, cybersecurity leadership isn’t diverse, but there is some fantastic young talent entering the space. So it’s crucial to equip them with leadership training and educate the current leadership team about the importance of inclusion and belonging.

My 2020 Retrospective & Opportunities For 2021

👩🏾‍💻 I have been spreading myself thin as a generalist. Being good at everything isn’t bad, but I have learnt that I can’t do everything, mentally and physically, I will burn out. It takes a whole village to work and grow into a city, and more. By the end of 2021, I want to be an expert to one thing in my wheelhouse.
