A taste of what's to come at LeadingEng West Coast

Every leader needs some reassurance that they're heading in the right direction, that's why we created a conference specifically for Heads, Directors and VPs of Engineering. LeadingEng is a full-day event dedicated to addressing the challenges faced at the highest levels of engineering management. The day consists of a powerful mix of interactive sessions, in-depth case studies, and guided discussions with peers at the same level. 

Eligibility criteria

LeadingEng has been conceived as a roundtable event. A seating plan will be featured so that attendees are amongst peers from organizations of similar sizes and complexity. This has been done to foster insightful conversation so that everyone gets the most out of the conference. 

To preserve the integrity of the event and ensure the best possible experience for the participants, LeadDev asks that all engineering leaders in the room be managing managers or holding highly senior positions. 

The seating plan will be based on the information you provide, so it's really important we understand more about you. As such, attendees are asked a series of questions when purchasing a LeadingEng or Manager of Managers Premier Pass conference ticket to determine if they fit the eligibility criteria

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to accommodate those who don’t meet these criteria. Registered delegates that do not meet the criteria will be notified by the LeadDev team within seven working days and issued a refund.

Job titles include: 
Head of Engineering 
Director of Engineering 
VP of Engineering
Principal Engineer

Hear what past attendees have to say about LeadDev conferences

"This was my fourth time attending Lead Dev. The things my co-workers and I have learned over the years at LeadDev have greatly influenced how we work and lead at Vinted. As one of us said this year - “it’s the most useful conference I’ve ever attended."

"The content was great, with awesome speakers. I loved the setup in tables that allowed for discussions. The exercises were very interesting, and having a handbook with everything prepared inside to follow the conference made the day very smooth and productive."

"I enjoyed the focus strictly on high-level individual contributors, and the ability to talk to and interact with other high-level ICs from other companies. I have no idea how I'm going to summarize all this to my coworkers."
