We are excited to introduce Julia Wester, Co-Founder of 55 Degrees AB.
In the lead up to Lean Agile Global 2021, taking place as a live virtual conference on 24 & 25 May 2021, we will be introducing you to some of the fantastic speakers in our lineup.
Q. How would you describe yourself in a single tweet?
A. Typical Gen-Xer longing to make a difference in the world without always being in the spotlight. Introvert with extrovert tendencies. Working towards less stress for myself and others – usually through Lean/Agile concepts.
Q. In your opinion why should people come and join us virtually at Lean Agile Global 2021?
A. This will be my first time attending LAG. I have great respect for the folks at Actineo and the knowledge they bring. I've always heard great things about the conference. Last year I got a sneak peek at the virtual tools being used for the conference and thought it was heads and tails above anything else I'd experienced. That's why I'm attending this year – both speaking and joining as a Platinum sponsor!
Q. We want LAG to be a diverse and inclusive conference. What does that mean to you?
A. That all people can feel represented and welcome without having to change who they are – without having to fit in. Regardless of who you are, you can find something meaningful to you in the content.
Q. Why should people come to your talk at Lean Agile Global 2021?
A. My talk is for people struggling on how to handle the pressure of delivering predictably in uncertain situations. It's for people that don't know how to forecast in Agile environments. We're going to talk about how uncertainty and forecasting aren't opposites. Instead, we have to learn how to account for uncertainty in our forecasting. If any of this feels like a relief to hear, you should come to my talk!
Q. What are you most looking forward to after Covid has settled down?
A. I am really looking forward to being in groups again, hanging out with friends. I also really can't wait to go see a movie in a theater. I miss that!
