Hear what past attendees love about LeadingEng

Community is at the core of LeadingEng. Find out why your peers love it and what you can expect to see in Berlin this December.

Every leader needs reassurance that they're heading in the right direction. That's why we created a conference specifically for Heads of, Directors, and VPs of Engineering. LeadingEng is a full-day event dedicated to addressing the challenges faced at the highest levels of engineering leadership. The day consists of an inspiring mix of interactive sessions, in-depth case studies, and guided discussions alongside your peers.

A mix of carefully selected talks and interactive sessions

We hand-select a day packed full of talks and interactive sessions from the best leaders in the industry, where you will learn what works for companies like Netflix, GitHub, Shopify, and Capital One.

This year, we have looked for talks that can help you grow both personally and professionally while rethinking how to deliver value as an engineering leader. We'll cover topics that span technical strategy, the art of delegation, creating inclusive and healthy team environments, and strengthening company alignment.

LeadingEng attendees will also benefit from an intimate round-table format based on a table plan carefully selected by our team. The audience is capped at 200 participants to allow for a focused and tailored experience. Here you will get the chance to engage with your peers from different-sized companies, industries, and regions and share your learnings throughout the day.


You will be provided with your own personal LeadingEng workbook, which will guide you through the day and help you keep track of what you learn.
