The Shard

Sky High attendance at Godel’s IT Leaders event at The Shard

“Godel sponsored IT Leaders Breakfast at View from The Shard filled within 4 days of announcement.”

Godel, a leading agile software development expert, who recently announced it was to hold an IT Leaders Breakfast Briefing at The Shard, London, named “Recruiting, Empowering and Retaining IT Talent” today announced that the event was filled within just four days of the event being announced.

Over 50 delegates including CIO’s, CTO’s, IT Directors, Head’s of Software Development and Head’s of Quality Assurance from many household and global names, have signed up to hear both Kevin Goldsmith, Director of Software Engineering at Spotify, the popular commercial music streaming service and Stuart Hughes, Chief Technical Officer of the UK’s leading hotel booking specialist, LateRooms.com, covering the respective organisations strategies on the empowerment of their IT talent.

The speakers will cover strategies for talent acquisition, training and development approaches, creation of strong cultures and retention strategies. All of these are named in the hottest topics in IT at the moment as Neil Turvin, Chief Executive Officer at Godel explains,

“As we know, motivated staff are a businesses most valuable asset. If members of your team are motivated by their role, understand their importance and the impact that they bring to a company and buy into a company’s culture, this feeling of belonging is transferred to your clients and consumers. The clients we work with are growing and invest millions of pounds in the recruitment processes, however, due to the lack of availability of skills, talent and salary competition in the market, these organisations need to identify unique ways of building a culture to retain their talent.

Neil continued, “We were very targeted in our promotion of this event and the result is that the event will be jam-packed with IT leaders from household names, not just in the UK, but globally too.  A hot topic, discussed with IT leaders, at the peak of the tallest building in the EU, it will be a great event.”

Godel staff numbers since 2010 have grown by 400% across its UK and Belarusian offices and the company has been identified by many well known brands in the UK as the “go-to” company to source software development and quality assurance talent, with many companies now utilising its managed extended software development teams and Quality Assurance teams model to aid their in-house teams in mission-critical application development and delivery.

Clients include: LateRooms.com, Tesco, Mitie Group, Grafton Group, The Co-operative, Boden, First Utility, The Hut Group, Earthport, Aveva, CACI and many more!
