Meri Williams

Meri is a geek, a manager, and a manager of geeks. She’s a CTO and also manages her own micro-consultancy ChromeRose which helps teams be brilliant. Previously she led the delivery team at the Government Digital Service and worked in Procter & Gamble’s Global Business Services organisation for 10 years, starting out as a Developer, moving on to Product Management, and finally Programme & Engineering/Operations Management. She’s led teams ranging in size from 30 to 300, mostly with folks spread across the world.

She studied Computer Science with a focus on artificial intelligence, so she still thinks of herself as a proper geek and imagines she always has a soldering iron in her back pocket - though sadly the reality isn’t so cool.
