About this event

This month, we have the pleasure of welcoming Claire Fitzpatrick from TikTok as our ChalkTalk guest speaker!

Be open to change - you never know where it might take you

When Claire Fitzpatrick started her career as a Chartered Accountant, before moving into the tech sector, she never envisaged she would eventually have a career in tech.

She is not a planner but opts to take opportunities and challenges as they present themselves. In this ChalkTalk, Claire will talk about the many pivot points in her career and how she came to those points and decisions.

She will share her observations on how the tech sector has evolved to require a broader skill set and how it can do more to attract this broader skill set in the “war for talent”.

We’ll also hear some tips also on what core soft skills tech organisations look for when recruiting, and those to focus on to be successful in hyper growth sectors.

This will be an interesting talk for those in tech, those wanting to be in tech and those just interested in career journeys and the industry.

About Claire:

Claire Fitzpatrick is a seasoned tech sector expert with vast experience in hyper growth tech companies such as media platforms, blockchain, telco, and most recently, TikTok.

She’s been involved in the tech startup scene through her corporate venturing role at Wayra (Telefonica) and as an advisor to Elkstone Capital’s venture fund.

Claire founded an innovation consultancy Red Planet, which raised external capital and achieved a trade sale.

Her career started in finance, after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant and studying a Masters and Bachelor of Commerce degree from UCD. Claire’s pre-tech era employees include Nestle, Unilever and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Claire will be joined by Each&Other's Principal UX Designer Ciarán Harris.

Looking forward to seeing you all there for an interesting discussion!
