Tech Swindon - Be More Pirate

44 people attended
It's our first online Swindon Founders and we are joined by Alex Barker from Be More Pirate to replace the event we had to cancel back in March.

"If Be More Entrepreneurial was the mantra for the late 20th century, then Be More Pirate is what we need as we head into the middle of the 21st, with all the challenges it is likely to bring. 

Pirates never tried to take on the establishment alone, the secret to their success was the crew. 

Because of this, whether we’re working with a team, or across a sector, Sam and I always champion the concept of a mutiny; a moment in time when a group of people come together and agree to overturn the rules or try a new way of doing things, and are willing to hold each other accountable to being that change. 

I’m joining TechSwindon on the 3rd of April to talk about everything that I’ve learnt from our community about what it means to be a modern pirate; how to really challenge mainstream thinking, clear the decks of pointless work, close the gap between intention and action, build strong crews, and tell a great story.

As one of the crew once said to me: “we’re not in this to be liked, we’re in it to be heard.” 

The virtual doors open at 12.30 - our interview will start at 12.45 and you can then use the networking facility to have a catch up with other attendees.

Tech Swindon is the hub celebrating our amazing tech community in Swindon and surrounding areas - we've only just gone live with our website and would love to hear from tech SME's in all disciplines to get them involved.
