On October 9th from 2-5pm, we’ll be having our 5th Salesforce Women in Tech event! And as always, there will be four inspiring, wonderful, brilliant speakers there to share their knowledge and chat to us about their career journeys. Here’s a little bit about them…
Lecturer in Computing and a Microsoft Certified Educator
Rebena Sanghera is a Lecturer in Computing and a Microsoft Certified Educator who specialises in security and project management concepts. She builds blended, eLearning and classroom products with a focus on measurable behavioural outcomes and is currently converging computing and HR with her niche interest in eLearning compliance behaviours. She also works with individuals to develop their profiles using eLearning as a way of growing their professional brands.
An entrepreneur by nature, Jo has been involved in evaluating & financing companies or running companies since she left University. Her interests have always led her to continuous refinement and expansion of a business and its processes, and she thrives on making order out of chaos.
Jo is currently the CFO / COO of Breadwinner Integrations, which produces cloud-based integration software. Their principal integration tool is Breadwinner which integrates Salesforce and Xero. As well as her official title, she wears several other hats, as anyone at a fast-paced tech start-up inevitably does. Until recently, she’s been running four companies and has just sold one.
