Long time no speak. Updates from my side.
I did go to The Next Web. It was all awesome, I loved the talks from the Innovation location. And the closing party – it had its spirit and it is so inspiring to have fun in a company of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs.
The biggest treasure of my visit to Holland, though, is a new business connection and a new partnership.

I didn’t manage to go to London, though, because UK agency made a positive decision about my visa, but…forgot to put it in my passport. They did so several months later, but too late for me to attend the event. I was told it was awesome, though. Here is the video from it: https://www.projects.emerging-europe.com/conferences ( the third one).
Right now the Emerging Europe is preparing the next two big events for the whole export-oriented companies from Central and Eastern European Countries. One will be in March 2018 in London. And the second – in autumn 2018 in Copenhagen. Both – to help companies, tech parks, Clusters, Associations and other communities make new connections on the Scandinavian and UK markets. If you want to join – please write me. I am responsible for gathering companies, clusters, associations, regional municipalities from Baltic Countries, Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia.

Kyiv Outsourcing Forum was good, as well as plenty other events happening this summer. Among them was also the workshop on IT Sales which I co-organized with adorable charismatic Manuel De Vits http://manuel_de_vits_on_it_sales.tilda.ws/
And several events I organized for Kyiv IT Cluster (below) among which the most successful was the event on Bitcoins, that was even shown on a specialized resource: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdE5VcLn0JM and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxJ3E7Zo5M0
And, of course, the meetings of IT Sales Club, which I moderate, become more and more fun:
Next big event now is the Outsource People Conference, that will be already next week. https://outsource-people.com/en

As part of the organizational team of Kiev IT Cluster, we visited a Cluster Matchmaking event in Stuttgart https://www.b2match.eu/cluster-matchmaking-2017 It was a breakthrough in the understanding of how to build a community. And a lot of connections.
Ah, and yes, I finally got my MBA degree. I am part of this program http://generation.kiev.ua/ and so right now I am on a mission of making this country a better place.
