Cossacks IT are mastering new areas – country PR and events on external markets. This time we are partnering with Emerging Europe and helping in the preparation of Outlook about Ukraine (Printed and Online versions) and an event networking seminar – meeting of Ukrainian IT companies with local businesses.
It was a great ride of more than 3 months of preparation, communication with companies and experts. We were responsible for gathering a group of Ukrainian companies for the event. The event is next week, I will get back to you with my impressions and photos.
We also did rebranding for the event. Or, rather, extra branding, creating new banners, leaflets and, most importantly, our new company mascot!
Please meet, IT Cossack, the right choice.
Proactive and innovative. Dynamic and responsible. Honest and easy-going. Real IT Hero.read more]
Hi everyone. Long time no speak, and probably it is a good idea to tell you what we are here at Cossacks IT are busy with.
First, almost a couple of months ago there was a great event, Outsource People, in which Cossacks IT also took part. This time we engaged into a project of Matchmaking, aiming at attracting foreign visitors to our conference. We established partnerships with Finnish, Danish, Swedish, German, Dutch, American companies to promote this event locally, and a half-a-year job was done. It resulted in not so many visitors from abroad, probably because conference on IT outsourcing is not a powerful enough stimulus to come to Ukraine. The conference was great, however, it is really a gathering event for our local IT community. And next time I am sure it will also become more interesting also for our foreign guests.
My husband was playing Gandalf. Since he is a fan of Lord of the Rings, it was a lot of fun for him. Marco is a Dutchman, who is providing English lessons and introduction to European mentality for local IT teams in Kiev. So, no more words, just photos: (more…)[read more]

Hey, it’s been a while since I posted here last time. Sorry, so much was going on.
Most important event was, probably, the IT Outsourcing Conference Outsource People, held here in Kiev. Cossacks IT was one of the organizers (or, rather, me as its owner).
This year we have gathered more than 600 visitors, had several very interesting international speakers and had a lot of fun during the event.

It took me some time to get ready to speak about this topic. Being inside the system, it is very difficult to see the system. Fortunately, I spoke with quite a number of people from outside and recent events also helped me grow understanding who are Ukrainians, how we are different from other nations and what it takes to do business with us.
So here is the analysis based on my feelings and understanding: (more…)[read more]
It is time for the first article in my blog. And first thing I want to speak about is Ukraine itself, where it comes from, what is its history and current situation. I will keep it short and very simple, for those of you, who want to have an overview. This overview is my personal opinion, which can differ from other visions. If you want to make your own opinion and dig deeper, you can find more detailed list of resources about the history of Ukraine at the end of this article. (more…)[read more]
