How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Co-Founder & CEO ,


I usually start my day catching up on email and following up on any messages in our internal team communications channels. I'll then have meetings either with my team, usually around product development, or with potential clients and organizers. A good part of my day is spent talking to people that have used or may use our platform in order to understand what they need and how we can better help them. My day usually ends by working on presentations or materials for meetings and pitches.

Senior Data Analyst ,


I wake up around 7:00 a.m. and go for a jog. I arrive at the office at 9:30 a.m. and I have a daily standup meeting at 10:30, so I'll try to have learned something new before that meeting; for example, I'll study a new model or algorithm that I can present at standup. Then I'll start my work; oftentimes that involves working on in-house requests from our product manager. In the afternoon, I'll have a meeting following up on my work for the day, then I get off of work at around 6:00 p.m.
