About the Event

Join us for our next TopTalks event on Wednesday, September 28, at 10:00 AM EST hosted through the Speakers Network program at Toptal! TopTalks are short TED-style talks in under 10-minutes presented by Toptal experts. Each talk showcases a well-formed idea, followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.

Come learn from fellow Toptalers, and if you’re up for it, give your feedback to help them improve! (Note: Rubrics will be provided at the event to all attendees who are open to sharing feedback. Or just come and learn something new!)

SPEAKER LINEUP:

Arpie Mikayelyan: The Important of Inclusive Design: Considering Not Just the Average User, but All Users
When creating a design the majority of the designers are mainly concentrated on the average users and their characteristics, yet it is always important to remember that there are people with accessibility issues, sexual orientation and cultural differences. The created design should respect all the differences and uniqueness of all the user segments.

Jonathan Wilson: Mergers & Acquisitions - Buy-Side: The Importance of Due Diligence, Day 1, and Post-Merger Integration
What is M&A? What are the key components for a proper Due Diligence? What’s important for Day 1 and Post-Merger Integration planning / execution? You’ll learn answers to these questions and so much more.

Erita Skendaj: How to agilify a system migration project?
Having participated and led a couple of system migration projects in my career, I’ve come to notice that they tend to be managed in a very strict predictive approach, concluding in a big-bang migration bringing considerable disruption to the business users. By applying a few agile principles the chances of success for these projects, and the chances of success for you as a project manager, are improved tenfold.
