Lovisa Stenbäcken-Stjernlöf (Services Manager Sweden, Avalon Solutions) opened the event with a short presentation of the Women in Cloud initiative and our company. She also talked about her role, and about women working in the tech industry.
Then she welcomed our keynote speaker – Didde Christensen (VP of Technology Nordic Choice Hotels). We couldn’t imagine a better way to kick-off our initiative than with Didde’s inspirational presentation. It was both interesting from a career building point of view (Didde talked about her journey, her approach to work and even office life), but also shared a lot of priceless advice and tips on personal growth.
The event wouldn’t be the same without our sponsors and partners: Google Cloud and Workplace by Facebook. Both partners’ representatives took the stage. Regina Croda (Strategic Partner Manager, Workplace by Facebook) talked about culture at Facebook, while Sara Selldahl (CMO, Google Cloud Nordics) shared her views on leadership in the cloud age (CMO, Google Cloud).
Shirin Dalin (Change Manager, Avalon Solutions) joined our guests for the panel discussion that was moderated by Julia Djurfeldt (Head of Salesforce Practice, Avalon Solutions). Management styles, office politics, motivation in work, career advice were just some of the topics we talked about.
We wrapped up the day with some networking time, drinks and snacks. See you next time!
