Best Talk I’ve Ever Seen? A Comfortable Silence Again.

Best Talk I’ve Ever Seen? A Comfortable Silence Again.

Inevitably, I get asked a lot post-conference:

“What was the best talk you heard this week?”

Last week as we gathered in Cambridge, England for the 2nd Business of Software Conference Europe. Inspired by talks that will change the way we work together as a team and meeting some wonderful people.

Inspiring, emotional, eloquent, thoughtful, brilliant, tackling some HUGE issues and problems.
