In 2022 we introduced a panel discussion to the ShipItCon format. Our panellists Sheeka, Stephanie, James and Paul shared their personal stories of failure and how they helped build resilient teams and processes within their respective organisations.
The panel was hugely popular based on feedback and so we’ve decided to bring it back this year.
This year Damien Marshall from Demonware will return as the panel facilitator and we’ll be welcoming 4 panellists to discuss “the unknown”. Our panellists will be discussing ways in which we can prepare for known risks and unknown unknowns.
