Bias vs. Science: Embrace neurodiversity for evidence-based management with Software Engineer, Manuel Gomes
Manuel Gomes has been messing about with technology since an early age - he sold his first small computer program when he was 14.
This led to a career in software engineering, in organisations ranging from startups to market-leading multinationals.
This evolved into systems architecture, team leadership, and technology management.
He has a keen interest in technical and business agility, complexity theory, evidence-based management, strategy and ecosystem design, and corporate innovation.
Manuel is a genuine and engaging public speaker, and particularly enjoys talking about agility and neurodiversity as a competitive advantage, especially in problem-solving and innovation in complex domains.
He is himself neurodivergent (ASD+ADHD), so he knows what he’s talking about! Follow Manuel on Twitter: @manuelgomes
