Outsource People 2019 Conference, in Kiev
On October 12 and 13, Kharkiv IT Cluster became a partner of the Outsource People conference, which was organized by Growth factory at the Ramada Hotel. The conference totaled more than 700 top representatives of Ukrainian IT companies. Among them were members of the clusters, who NOT only organized the conference, but also acted as speakers and participants in the event.
An insane amount of “gratitude comments” to the organizers filled the Facebook news feed. Conference participants, speakers and organizers felt like one big family in these two days.
This year the conference was filled with interactive events, experiments and best practices of large-scale events! The organizers managed to establish a great networking thanks to a quest that attracted every participant, speaker and partner. In addition, a Telegram channel was created, which helped participants develop online communication, a kind of networking among the Internet space. “Do you know a man? Find him in the chat! “
The discussion panel has become one of the features of the conference. Not only listening, but also reporting, asking, solving and helping are the main tasks of the discussion panel. According to the survey, this part has become one of the most beloved for the participants.
Top speakers from the lead companies in the IT industry shared their experiences. They inspired, taught, answered all questions and helped to solve the current problems of the companies participating in the conference. Among the speakers were also Taras Kitsmey (Founder SoftServe), Jan Keil (vice-president of InfoPulse), Emanuel Love (Head of Ukraine at MeltinLab Barcelona, Founder at MultiNations Kyiv). Each lecture was focused on one or another business task. Participants could choose – marketing or sales, development or CRM. Five lectures could be held simultaneously. “Didn’t like this? You can switch to another! “
The main value for those who joined the event was the exchange of experience in various fields of activity. Starting with customer search, ending with professional tools for working in the IT business and building the internal brand of the company. Communication – has become an opportunity in an informal setting to consider the more “personal” side of the business. There was no pathos, there was no “who is cooler?” – only mutual assistance, pleasant and productive conversations, exchange of experience and networking.
