2018 Keynote speaker - Joanne Molesky

Joanne Molesky

Joanne Molesky

Joanne Molesky will be with us in Melbourne, all the way from British Columbia. She is a Principal Associate at ThoughtWorks, a global software delivery and consulting company. She is currently a key member of their internal TechOps Management team, with responsibilities for IT Governance, Risk and Compliance. She has lead both the global Continuous Delivery and InfoSec teams at ThoughtWorks and is co-author (with Jez Humble and Barry O'Reilly) of the book Lean Enterprise, published by O'Reilly Books. 

Her passion is for finding ways to reduce risks related to software delivery and its use without compromising creativity, experimentation and learning. Over the course of her many years of work experience in both IT and Healthcare, there is one important thing she has learned: "Things change, get over it and to learn to adapt."

The two links below will take you to content we developed to help you learn more about Joanne, her views on the challenges and opportunities the workforce faces and the ways she thinks you can prepare for the conference.

"Part One - Why Organisations Need to Change"
