Future of Work #6

Hackerspace Trójmiasto and Toptal invite you to join the Future of Work online event - a conversation about changs in the work environment, professional development, and best practices in the workplace.

We are a community of brilliant professionals: developers, designers, remote workers, freelancers, coaches, founders, entrepreneurs, and everyone in between. If you are curious about work transformation and professional growth, these talks are for you!

For the 6th edition of Future of Work, we have asked the speakers to share their thoughts on making the best of and adapting to the current employment conditions. While they might not be the most favorable ones, it doesn’t mean that you can’t thrive in your job. Join us on July 15th, 2020 to learn about it firsthand.

This is an open conversation, so there will also be an opportunity to ask questions and talk to speakers and the Hackerspace Trojmiasto community.

Discussion Panel and networking

This is what previous attendees say about the Future of Work meetup:

Earlier this week I've attended the Future of Work #4 with some really interesting, touchy and inspiring talks from Milana Cap, Eddie Jaoude and Vinciane de Pape, moderated by Piotr Gaczkowsky.

This thing of attending meetups worldwide with speakers from different continents is still mesmerizing :)

- Riccardo

If I thought the previous ones were great, the one yesterday set the bar even higher. Wow, wow and wow again. I don't know for sure, but maybe because the speakers and the topics were more aligned with me? Either way, it was awesome! Everything was great: the story of Milana was captivating, very inspiring; Eddie told a lot of nice tips and it was interesting listening to him in general, a very positive guy; Vinciane touched upon a very relevant topic, it's nice that more is said about mental health, especially in tech. Very inspiring and motivating stories -it was one of the best meetups I've ever been to.

- Nikodem

I watched the recording - it's absolutely fantastic! The people you invited were wonderfully prepared and everyone took good care of the authenticity - they talked about personal experiences and did not theorize. Big WOW.

- Justyna

Thank you for the event. It was very useful and I would love to participate in future online meetings organised by you. Also, I would love to visit your space in Gdańsk but don't know yet when I will have some time. Unfortunately the last time I haven't got microphone and because I do not like to chat I haven't participated in your networking sessions.
