PowerToFly partnered with CloudBees on June 25th to present our first event together...and our first event in Raleigh, North Carolina.
We were thrilled to have one of CloudBees' co-founders, Francois Dechery, on the panel and a keynote address by their CFO Matt Parson. These two male allies were joined by three of CloudBees women tech leaders: April Mace - AVP, Global Solution Architecture; Buffi Gresh - AVP, WW Software Delivery Strategy and Enablement; and Marina Harrell- Senior Manager, Engineering (who also lead us through an amazing product demo) to discuss favorite projects, current tech innovations, and their personal career journeys.
CloudBees (who is hiring) understands that organizations with greater diversity—gender, racial, ethnic, and global—are stronger partners to their customers. They attribute much of their success to CloudBees' worldwide workforce and commitment to global diversity, which opens their proprietary software to innovative ideas from anywhere.
A great crowd at our event with CloudBees

But this is the ideal time to think about the financial objectives you want to achieve. The best rewards don't come without risks, and there's no better time to start setting goals and taking chances.
In an interview, it's hard to anticipate what questions an interviewer will ask, but there is one that they are guaranteed to ask every single time (and it may be the most important question of the interview): "Do you have any questions for me?"
As we approach the end of 2019, there's no better time to reflect on the past year and prepare for 2020. This is especially true if you work from home: from tax write-offs to redesigning your home office to maximizing productivity, there's a lot you can do to make 2020 your most efficient year yet.
