Executive Education for the Digital Age
Tech for Non-Techies is a boutique professional services firm helping governments, corporates and executives succeed through education strategy and programming.
In an age when even your coffee shop has an app, every company is a tech company. This means that to succeed today, every ambitious professional needs to Speak Tech.
Speaking tech is not the same thing as doing tech.
It means learning how to collaborate with technologists, ask the right questions and align business goals with technology strategy.
We do not teach people to code, because we do not believe that this will bring the best ROI for most professionals today.
Get ROI on your digital transformation spend by up-skilling your teams.
Get tech clients as a lawyer, accountant or a market. Speak tech and understand your clients.
Foster collaboration between the people who make the product and the people who sell the product.
