Get to know Fatima Zaidi

What are your hopes for the next generation of women in tech?
It’s often times where women are afraid of being too promotional, opinionated or aggressive. So my hope is that all women raise their hand, take the plunge, take credit for your successes, and know that nobody else has more or less a right to be doing what you are.

What’s the greatest piece of advice you have ever received?
The best advice i've ever gotten is to focus my entire sales strategy on building relationships and providing value to your community which I have found to be a much more sustainable long term approach.
