Day of week:

9:00am - 9:50am

How do you effectively contribute for the long haul? Former Pivotal, eBay, and Microsoft executive Hugh Williams shares his experiences of why health, nutrition, and exercise are essential to being a successful engineer and leader.

How do you find the time? How do you eat right? How do you stay in great shape when you're sitting all day?

Hugh shares his personal story of an encounter with Gullain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), the life lessons learnt from a major health scare, and how he made it back by looking after himself. He also shares the stories of executives and tech leaders he's worked with. You'll leave with his ten principles for long-term effectiveness -- and a belief that you can find the time to look after yourself.
