We are thrilled to be welcoming Alison Coward to speak at Business of Software Europe 2018. Alison helps creative teams improve collaboration so they produce better and more effective ideas. She will be discussing how to build high performance teams. 

We're also welcoming back Bill Janeway and Tim Barker

Bill, the founder of Warburg Pincus tech and now academic, spoke back in 2015 about 'Productive Bubbles'. This year, he will discuss how once upon a time - some thirty years - making money in enterprise software was relatively easy. This is no longer true, and the enterprise is missing out as a result. What’s an entrepreneur or VC to do?

Tim, who spoke about 'The 5 Habits of Highly Successful SaaS Companies' in 2014, is now the CEO of DataSift, an independent provider of social data. Tim was a product person then CMO for Salesforce EMEA when it was starting up. He joined DataSift as their Chief Product person before assuming the role of CEO. He will be talking about managing through hard times...

If you're thinking about selling your company, don't, seriously, don't, until you have heard from Jason Eckenroth, founder of bootstrapped ShipCompliant. He sold his business successfully but in hindsight, he might have done things differently. He spoke at BoS Europe 2017 on this subject - you can watch that talk here.

Bring your questions and join us for a Hangout with Jason Eckenroth tomorrow - Wednesday 31st January, 3pm GMT.
