Don’t be irreplaceable, be invaluable!
Talk Description: Increase your market worth by becoming a value-driven engineer. Companies do not hire people to fill in a position; companies hire people to generate more value for their customers, so customers pay them in return. To be successful means to become obsessed with producing value, so the company has an essential return on their investment in you. In this presentation, we will look into the 5 habits of value-driven engineers and how you can develop them.
