What people are saying about Circles
Engaging speaker, energetic, easy to understand framework and had a clear plan on what to expect in future. I am definitely coming back.
Ashish Agrawal - VP of Engineering @ Caribou
It was a good mix of practical advice along with real life examples. This helped to connect the discussion to how it applies to my job and what I should be thinking about.
Subha Madaka - Eng Manager, Head of Eng, Customer Systems Platform @ Duo Security
Excellent session with lots of great tips. Looking forward to the future sessions
Sribharathi Modukuru - Senior Engineering Manager @ VMware
It was a great flow. We focused on one item, got the chance to debate some of the points, meet each other. I think the framework is good and I left with good ideas for the future.
Andrei Gavrila - VP of Engineering🔹Agile Coach @ Mentor Cruise
I really love the inclusive way you bring all the participants and provide value in a short time.
Stanly Thomas - Engineering Leader @ Microsoft
I really enjoyed this session. Even though my company has a robust CDM in place denoting the competencies we look for for a transition between L4 -> L5, a lot of what Jacob covered here supplements said competencies in a bit more detail.
