Workshops

WORKSHOP 1: BRAND STRATEGY & OPTIMAL POSITIONING

Presenter: Andy Cunningham - Cunningham Collective

Learn from Andy Cunningham – the PR pro that launched the Apple Mac, NeXT and Pixar alongside Steve Jobs.
 
Andy Cunningham argues that positioning isn’t the same as branding, which is a fatal mistake business leaders often make. Positioning is the rational, intellectual side and branding is the emotional side. A company must first know itself (establish its position) before it can express its identity (execute its branding). Andy presents a clear step-by-step framework that will help attendees determine their company’s precise position in the marketing landscape, and learn how to use this positioning to guide successful brand efforts that build market momentum.

WORKSHOP 2: CLOUD SECURITY

Presenter: Alec Posney - Atlassian

Cloud Native Security Practises on AWS

Depending on where you are in your AWS cloud journey, it is critical to take responsibility for protecting your data and intellectual property in order to reduce the risk of a major attack.  An attack could result in an expensive outage or a major disruption with potentially business-ending consequences.

Amazon provides a plethora of security services and tools to secure practically any workloads, but the administrator has to actually implement the necessary defenses. Join us for an interactive, hands-on workshop facilitated by Atlassian Cloud Engineer Alec Posney.
