Some insights about team structure and how team should interact with each other, I should have prepared more since it's a lot of information to be covered in 1 hour time :)

1. The importance of knowing your business plan inside out and being able to reference any aspect of it clearly and confidently. 2. Which aspect of our product is the most interesting from an investor's perspective. 3.

As follows in no particular order:

1. Stay active with a clear goal in mind.

2. Brainstorm ideas for innovation with team and beyond - MVP | Fail fast | Pivot. This will also help with self marketing and aid with the avoidance becoming labeled for distinct specialisms or role categories.

3. Report to executive teams in a way that demonstrates how IT targets map into business goals. Place consideration on time, quantity, scope, budgets and risk at the very least.

4.......because I like to add a fourth :-) Peter demonstrates why this initiative is so good and I am grateful for having the opportunity to take guidance from an experienced leader with a worldly understanding built on modern thinking. Many thanks!
