TestBoss is our award winning networking event for leaders in Test Management across Yorkshire. It’s a chance for Test Managers to congregate at an intimate venue in Leeds City Centre to discuss hot topics whilst networking and enjoying free food and drink throughout the evening. TestBoss will take place on Thursday 11 February 2016 and has already attracted delegates from Yorkshire Building Society, Icelolly.com and Cascade HR, amongst others.
Corecom is also delighted to welcome Rosie Sherry, Founder and CEO of the Software Testing Club and The Ministry of Testing, as our Guest Speaker for the evening. Rosie’s presentation titled: ‘How to Deschool your Testing Career’ will explore her journey in home schooling her children and how the changes they had to make in their approach to life as a result of unschooling were also applicable to the Testing world.
When asked what she was going to talk about at TestBoss, Guest Speaker, Rosie Sherry said:
“Three years ago I pulled my children out of school and started a crazy journey of home schooling our kids. I followed my heart through a journey that I believed was authentic and full of amazing learning opportunities. We decided to take an unschooling approach where bit by bit we started ditching rules and creating our own ones.
“There is a popular term in the unschooling world called ‘deschooling’. This is the inner process that most of us (parents and children) need to go through to adapt to a new way of living and learning. What I didn’t anticipate were the profound changes they would have on our approach to life and how applicable they are to the Testing world.
“In this talk I will share my experiences, and explain why and how I believe it is essential for most of us Testers to deschool themselves from traditional Testing and work approaches.
“Please bring an open mind to this talk.”
