Talks & training

Hannah Smith talks about agile project management at WDC 2017 BristolI love sharing my knowledge and am regularly seen around Bristol and the local area giving talks and training others. I tend to talk or teach about my other two skill-sets: coding and project management.

Whatever I’m talking about people tell me they enjoy my friendly, relaxed style that gets the audience involved and usually laughing (for the right reasons that is!). It’s hard finding women who will stand up and talk, about coding or otherwise – I’m always proud to represent women, especially those in coding or tech.

If you’re interested in having me talk at your event, or do some training for you just drop me a line and let’s have a chat.

Hannah is absolutely brilliant (technical knowledge, teaching ability, willingness to go the extra mile). It’s been a privilege being taught by Hannah.
