Women in Tech not Just Code

By Women In Tech Not Just Code
Technology is not just about coding and this podcast is not just for women. We're celebrating every single person in a tech role or a tech company. We're bringing together people at all levels and talking to 'real models' that share experiences, dispelling myths, soundbites and gimmicks that may be holding us back. We're tackling issues through plain speaking, honesty, no gimmicks or soundbites, no fakery - just reality.
Hosted by Carol Johnson @johnsoncsdo @womenintechnotjustcode

Rosie Kaye
How does working in a pie shop help you in Silicon Valley?  In this thought provoking episode Rosie Kaye reflects on a milestone birthday year in lockdown.  She explores her experiences and shares her insights and how she is tackling challenges many women face. Rosie Kaye is a Strategic Account Manager at Google who started her career serving up pies.  Understanding customers needs from working in retail, where authentic human interaction is essential, has been the key to her success when it comes to forging strong business relationships.  This episode is heartfelt, at times raw, yet strips back the essentials of how to succeed as a woman working in a male dominated environment. Here's a snapshot of our chat.... Living & leaving city life Fitting in & hiding as a woman. Cloud computing. Learning from failure. Tackling imposter syndrome. Making yourself memorable.

Andrea Kis
Andrea Kis has had an ‘accidental’ career in tech.  Starting in investigative journalism, she moved to a multilingual service desk that propelled her to becoming  well known and highly regarded in the ITSM (IT Service Management) space.  Her ability to humanise tech not only brings tech alive, it makes it usable to consumers and sustainable for business.  She is challenging all technicians to understand the contribution they make to organisational success.  She’s a contributing author of the VeriSM Service Management for the Digital Age book and architect of the SIAM (Service Integration & Management) foundation training.  Coming from a Service Management background myself, it’s wonderful that Andrea was able to join me on this podcast.
