I am an international speaker and am very happy to explore new opportunities to share my experience and knowledge with other people. As of February 2019, I’m now the Head of Automation for Sydney at Planit Testing, and before that I was the Quality Practice Lead at Campaign Monitor. Within Campaign Monitor, I drove a change in how quality and testing were viewed and implemented within the organisation. I was also responsible globally for Quality across the 3 companies belonging to our parent. And, I’m keen to share this journey for others to learn from. I have over 9 years experience in testing, with strong manual and technical experience, I love problem solving and finding new and better ways to do things. I can talk about Agile, Automated Tests, Getting developers to test, Coaching, Running meetings, Exploratory Testing, Running workshops and more.

If you would be interested in having me contribute at an event you are running, please reach out! I’m on twitter as @pete_bartlett, LinkedIn, or email me
