My Workshops That Hep #CTOs

My Workshops that help you save time. From my coaching I experience many CTOs who know what to do, but don't have the time to do it. Let me do the work, I have the time. And you can accomplish more in a shorter amount of time and also do different things that are also important.

coding panda Workshops that Really Help

All CTOs I have met do not have enough time. Not enough time to hold workshops with their team leads to creating a vision and strategy. Not enough time to train everyone on better hiring. Not enough time to roll out development metrics. Not enough time to optimize time performance. I have the time, knowledge and material to do all of that for you, so you can work on other things that are important.

about Stephan

Stephan Schmidt launched his tech career as a self-taught coder, mastering the art of programming as a kid in a department store back in 1981 with ambitions of creating video games. His passion for technology led him to university, where he delved into computer science, specializing in distributed systems and artificial intelligence, while also exploring the realms of philosophy. With the dawn of the internet era, Stephan became a pioneering coder and engineering manager for several startups.

His journey in the tech world expanded as he founded a venture capital-funded startup and tackled architecture, processes, and growth challenges in various fast-growing VC-backed companies. His roles have included engineering manager at ImmoScout24 and CTO of an eBay Inc. subsidiary. Following the successful sale of his wife's startup, the couple relocated to the seaside, where Stephan embraced his role as a CTO Coach, guiding technology leaders through the intricacies of their evolving roles.
