A New Partnership to Support Game Devs in Career Development

I'm writing this blog post from Austin, Texas, USA, where we're kicking off the return of the IGDA Leadership Summit today, and where I had the privilege of speaking to IGDA Austin on Tuesday. To me, the Leadership Summit and the chance to interact with Chapters represents the very best of the IGDA-giving game developers information they need to build better teams, better games, and a better career, and connecting them to their peers locally and around the world.

As part of those initiatives, I’m proud to announce a new IGDA partnership with IEP, a game development management and leadership training provider, to offer four webinars exclusively to IGDA members. The webinars, which include Financial Fundamentals, Working with Contracts, Business Continuity Planning, and Managing Your Brand and Reputation topics, are a great learning resource for game developers around the world, and represent the continued evolution of our focus on giving members the information they need for sustainable, fulfilling careers.

My only regret about the Leadership Summit this year is that travel expense makes it impossible to bring everyone to the event-I'm so proud of the hard work the Speaker Selection Committee, event team, speakers, and other supporters did to make this event a reality. We're recording all of the talks, and we look forward to making them available to IGDA members later this year so that everyone has the chance to benefit from the wisdom of our speakers regardless of where they live. And I'm excited to continue to improve and enhance our membership benefits through partnerships with leading companies like IEP and other resources for game developers to reach their personal and professional goals.
