January 20, 2014 | John Rusk | 1 Comment Over the past few years, I’ve been building up material on how we can all learn people skills. Late last year I finally got it all pulled together into a 30-minute presentation. The presentation includes several important things which I have not yet covered in writing on this blog. I presented the talk at last year’s NZ Institute of IT Professionals (IITP) conference in Tauranga to a small but (I think) appreciative audience. Thanks to the generosity of the good folks at IITP, the presentation is now available on-line for a limited time. (Conference presentations are normally for IITP members-only, but they’ve kindly made this one openly available “for a limited time”). [Update: the video is now members-only. Sorry] (and please forgive the nervous-looking lackluster first 60 seconds or so, it gets better!) Finally, here’s a textual summary of the talk, in lieu of a slide deck.
