Workshops

 

Workshop #1  

Creating Collaborative Teams

by Birgitta Persson

What makes teams really successful and collaborative? How do you build trust and engagement in temporary teams? We will look into what is going on beneath the surface of what is being said and done in a group, namely values, perceptions and beliefs, and how that influence the group dynamics. 

Workshop #2  

Creative ways to keep our businesses relevant (and alive) during crisis

By Alex Antolino

Most business are being forced to shoot down temporarily, some of them won’t reopen ever again. 

Is possible that our main source of income paused at the moment, and we don’t know when cash will flow in again. However, even if we’re not able to cash any money, most of us are in abundance of time. Can we do something about it? How can we turn time into our customer’s trust, so when things get back to money we can increase our income? 

Alex Antolino will share some creative but practical tips and ideas wrapped with real examples on how to stay relevant to your customers even if your regular activity is suspended at the moment.

Workshop #3  

Creative Technologies

by Lina Marta Sarma

Scientific discoveries have become a playing ground for dancers, poets, musicians and the like, and have spawned into new and novel professions. We will dig into these fields where technology has integrated into art and media, so much so that most of us haven't even noticed the landscape shifting. Just in the last decade it has already changed the way we express and consume culture, making it extremely intriguing to see where it will take us in the next.

Workshop #4 

Design Without Limits

by Edgars Zvirgzdins

Design without limits might be hard to achieve, yet that could be our guiding star in this presentation where we will try to efficiently use our 48 hours here from the design perspective – maximising focus on things that matter.

Workshop #5  

Digital Transformation

by Sebastien Toupy

It's no secret that nowadays, technology has become an integral part of our lives. From the way we work to the way we move and communicate, our society is constantly on the lookout for the latest piece of tech that will increase productivity. What may be less obvious and all the more fascinating is take a look at ways in which technology is influencing some of the more creative aspects of our lives. During this workshop, we will take a look at a number of examples in which technology is drastically changing the creative industry and uncover how we, as a society, may harness its power in the most remarkable way. 

Workshop #6

How to Demo like a Pro

by Egita Polanska

Showing off your final demo what you have built over the weekend is one of the hardest parts of any hackathon, yet one of the most important. Starting from scratch and building a prototype in less than 48 hours is already challenging enough, but to make it all worthwhile you also have to showcase and explain what you’ve done to the final jury in just 2 minutes. Yes, you will have only 120 seconds. During this workshop you will hear about tips, tricks and examples on how to successfully create a demo of what you have built, as well as the business case in a simple and understandable manner.
