Speaker: Michał Parkoła

Technical skills are the foundation of an engineering career but without people skills your success will be severely limited and your life much less happy.

In this talk you will learn three basic skills:

1) Two simple rules for listening
2) Three paths to reach hearts and minds
3) Four steps to challenge your own beliefs
