#14 Zain ul Abidin - Iterative Software and Speech Development | Accelerated Leadership | Childhood Attempts

Toast of the Wild East

18-08-2021 • 46 mins

Zain ul Abidin (LinkedIn) is a Product Manager at ResMed, medical equipment company. He has 11 years of experience in software development, going through the roles of Software Developer, Software Architect and now Product Manager.

He started working in software development in 2010 and joined Toastmasters in 2016.

Originally from Islamabad, Pakistan, I met him in Wroclaw, Poland, where I noticed his enthusiasm for competing in speech contests as well as organizing events. Now he is based in Dublin, Ireland, where he continues his Toastmasters journey.

Episode takeaways:

  • You can write your speeches in an iterative way as if you were developing a software app. Don't hesitate to create a shitty first draft.
  • Every meeting benefits from having a clear agenda and someone who ensures the group is following it. Not only Toastmasters meetings!
  • Reconnect with people you know, or connect with those you don't, by inviting them for a "virtual coffee".
