AKF Partners is expanding its popular Scalability Workshop series in 2016 to include four workshop events throughout the year. Each workshop is a unique two-day event designed for current CTOs, VPs of Engineering, Chief Architects, and other technology executives who want to improve their management, leadership, and technology skills. Marty Abbott, Mike Fisher, and Drew Morrell from AKF Partners will share their combined decades of experience as CTOs and technology executives at both large organizations and start-ups.
Upcoming 2016 Workshops:
AKF Scalability Workshop – Boston
Sept 21-22 in Boston

Nearly every participant in one of last year’s workshops expressed that they’d love a way to continue the collaboration with other participants and the AKF team after the 2-day event concluded. This year we are adding an Attendee Cohort component to all of our workshops to do just that. Participants from each workshop will be invited to join a forum dedicated exclusively to them and their fellow classmates. This will provide a mechanism to continue relationship development, discuss past technology experiences (good and bad), and ask questions of others who are facing similar challenges. Additionally, it’s a great way to interact with AKF Partners on an on-going basis. We’ll continuously seed the forum with relevant topics and tools. We hope this helps you maintain the momentum from the workshop long after the event itself ends.
Quotes from Past Participants:
