Tech CTO Chats

This Tech CTO Chat is one in a series of chats featuring technical leaders about topics close to their roles and hearts.

About this Chat

How can new CTOs embrace management opportunities, and quickly set their teams up to succeed? Davina Adiusila is the Head of Engineering at Eucalyptus, a start-up that ideates, builds, and manages digital healthcare companies. After joining Eucalyptus as a senior engineer, Davina was fast tracked into a management role, and found herself leading a team of engineers for the first time.

Throughout her transition from an individual contributor to team leader, Davina has learned invaluable lessons about communication, expectations, and organisational change. Davina enjoys a curiosity and talent for the unique craft of leading engineering teams, and wants to share her insights into helping other engineers transition into management roles.

Thank you. That will help us with our conversations at our company.
