Hear from past attendees on their experiences with LeadDev conferences

"Thank you LeadDev for such an amazing and inspiring event! Amazing because I learned so much and made so many great connections. Inspiring because I hope to not only attend next year's event, I hope to do so as a speaker."

Erika Lewis
Wide Eye Creative Senior Engineering Manager

"This was my fourth time attending LeadDev. Every subsequent time I brought more and more co-workers from Vinted Engineering. As one of us said this year - 'it’s the most useful conference I’ve ever attended.' "

Mindaugas Mozunas
Vinted VP of Engineering

"I loved the diversity in the speaker line up! It's important to see others like you up on the stage to foster inclusivity. I also loved meeting speakers and folks in real life that I'd known through twitter for a long time."

Crystal Hirschorn
Snyk Director of Engineering

Neha Batra's LeadDev story

Like many delegates and speakers, LeadDev has been a source of inspiration and connection as she has built herself a successful leadership career.

When I first spoke at LeadDev, I was an Engineering Manager eager to share the tools I had with the LeadDev community and I was received with encouragement and a new network of people who shared common leadership goals and values with me.

Several years later, I’m a VP with the same passion to share the tools I have but a whole different perspective! I’ve gotten to see my LeadDev network grow through their roles alongside me.quote marks

Meet your conference chair: Meri Williams

Meri is an experienced CTO who has led teams in a range of organisations from Procter & Gamble to Monzo. She was LeadDev's founding Chair in 2015, helping to shape the conference as you experience it today.

I feel proud that through LeadDev we are able to have real impact in some of the areas I care most deeply about: building amazing teams, helping people to build their technical leadership skills, providing a platform for diverse opinions and experiences. quote marks
