Good morning! šŸŒ…


šŸ‘‹šŸ» I'm Sally Lait. I work in engineering leadership, am an international speaker, writer for industry publications, and award winner.

šŸ‘©šŸ»ā€šŸ’» I've spent my career working with digital technologies and the web

I'm currently VP of Engineering at Farewill, where I sit on the Exec team, and am accountable for Engineering, Data & Insights, and IT. I've previously worked in the role of Engineering Director/web discipline lead at Monzo, ran a digital transformation consultancy, and started out agency side as a developer up to Head of Technology. Some of the people I've worked with have included the RNLI, Electronic Arts, Sport England, Hotelplan, Nokia, SSE, Fulham FC, and Manor Racing F1 team (amongst others).

šŸŽ¤ I've spoken at a wealth of conferences and meetups around the globe - everywhere from the USA, to Europe, and Japan.

šŸ” At present I live in Suffolk in the UK, where I spend time gaming, gardening, learning ę—„ęœ¬čŖž, collecting terrible hotel carpets, cooking, and illustrating manhole covers and train stamps.

šŸŒŸ I occasionally take time off to be involved in on small things outside of my day job (for instance I run workshops, and I've helped to curate the Render conference series). If you'd like to speak to me about anything I've done or could do, please say hello!

How technology can influence business decisions

I was recently invited to be on Skiller Whale's Primarily Context-Based podcast to talk about the topic of how technology can influence business decisions. This is a big and nuanced topic, and as we only managed to cover a small slither of it in the original discussion I thought Iā€™d share some of my thoughts in a long-form blog post form as well as whatever ends up making it into the show.
