Organized by Aspire Systems, delivered by thought leaders around the globe, and headed by Srini Sankar, Practice Manager – Digital Assurance, this Testing Leadership Conclave (TLC) attempts to provide a platform for leaders in the testing space to come together, discuss and share best practices, success stories, commonly-faced testing challenges and the ways in which we one can achieve the desired business results.

In this series of interactive webinars, you will get the incredible opportunity to:

  • Understand Real-world problems in testing and the solutions implemented to tackle them
  • Hear from the leaders themselves on what worked and what didn’t
  • Learn the practices and benchmarks that set apart top-tier teams
  • Connect with testing leadership from the industry to deliberate on strategies for testing


In each of these webinars, there is a presentation from each thought leader focusing on their experiences and their insights into strategies that made their organization/project a success.  The sessions also consist of a Q & A forum at the end for the participants to interact and clarify their questions.
