Marvin Wong shares why events like the Women in IT series are so important for achieving gender parity in the tech sector.
Q1. Why have you joined the Women in IT Canada Summit?
To share insights and perspectives on how we can add value by doing things differently in Technology.
Q2. Why are you compelled to participate in the conversation around customer-centric solutions?
In any field that requires a high degree of technical expertise, we continually focus on the “how” and “what”. I have seen many teams solely focus on the technical solution only to find that it is not useful for their customer. This deteriorates the culture of our teams and diminishes the value we can deliver through technology. We need to be focused on the customer and understand their “why”.
Q3. What sessions are you most looking forward to? And why?
All sessions have some great, relevant content. For me, it would be “how to future proof your Security”. With a substantial increase in cybercrime, especially in Canada – this is a topic that is top of mind for all organisations.
Q4. Why should local and international professionals tune in for your session?
Because this topic touches every industry and every type of organisation. If we focus on adding value to our customers and doing that right, we will reduce wasteful work, rapidly transform our business, and create a great place to work.
