We Need to Talk About ... Testing!
by Paul Theyers

Paul will talk about a framework that provides a simple solution to the complex problem ‘we need to talk about testing?’. The visual framework is methodology agnostic so no matter what you are doing (project, product or change) or how you are doing it (traditional or Agile), this will give you the critical first steps to getting started and let you know if you are even ready to go.


With more than 16 years’ experience in the telecoms, utilities and finance industries, Paul’s expertise centres on complex integrated technology solutions, on and offshore vendor management and stakeholder management. 

As a high-end Test Consultant, he focuses on delivery achieved through his natural ability to break down and simplify complex issues and communicate options and decisions clearly and concisely.

Paul has also transferred these analytical skills and passion for testing through mentoring and is a Project K mentor for the Foundation for Youth Development (FYD).
