“Can I build a career in Tech without learning to code?”, “I wish there was an avenue to meet more people that work in Tech and don’t code”
These statements plague a lot of minds and the Non-Techie Tech Talks is the answer to these and more.
Who is a Non-Tech Techie?
A Non-Tech Techie is a person who is key to the success of a viable Tech product/idea but does not interact with a codebase in carrying out their roles. This includes people in HR, Customer Success, Communications, Marketing, Business Development, Accounting, UX Research, Product design, etc.
Non-Techie Tech Talks is an avenue for these Non-Techies to connect and learn from people in their field. It is also for people immersed in the arts, humanities or social sciences who want to explore careers in Tech.
The meetup will take place on Saturday, June 1st, 2019 and it promises to be a time of stimulating conversations all around.
#NonTechieTechTalks will feature talks from Tope Omotolani (Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer at Farmcrowdy), Busayo Longe (Founder & CEO, Formplus), Adeyinka Fowowe (Human Resources Manager Max.ng), Francis Otuogbai (Lead Designer, Kudi.co), Toyosi Abolarin (Product Lead, Qrios), Susan Ikegwu (Digital Marketing Executive, Fibre.ng), Enor Izomor (Customer Success Lead, Cowrywise) and Kharis Izevbizua (Product Specialist, Paystack). The event is organized by Jadesola Odujole, a Comms Manager and UX writer.
