What Our Members Say

Bruno Moscão

CTO at Skills Workflow

The CTOs Portugal community came to fill in a gap on our tech landscape by putting CTOs and other tech leaders on our community that would otherwise have no contact with each other.

Andre Pimenta


As a CTO I always tried to lead teams by encouraging strong relationships, making sure the teams had a clear sense of purpose and were generally happy and not stressed. From experience these were the best teams with consistent results.
But some talks especially Hass Chapman's talks basically explained all of this from a scientific point of view which basically supported with facts much better my experience and also opened a whole new world for me to study. It was great!

Glyn Roberts

Delivery Principal at Imaginary Cloud

What I have found most useful is being able to ask specific questions about real situations and getting actionable feedback and also recommendations on tools and reading that would be useful in future situations.
