For those who don’t know ZON, it is one of the biggest players in portuguese Pay TV and Internet providers. They have this internal monthly event called “ZON Web Talks” where people from other companies or business fields are invited to give a speech. This event have a particular agenda, with only two talks the subjects have to be one technical and the other inspirational/creative.
I was invited for the 3rd edition and I’m very grateful to Hugo Silva for the invitation. The event took place today in the ZON’s new building at Campo Grande – Lisboa and the venue was very cool, very light-hearted and informal.
The first talk was taken by Ricardo Nascimento, a Project Manager at InnoWave Technologies. It was about “Using Agile SCRUM in IT projects” and it was really good. I’m a big supporter of Agile SCRUM principles.
I had the inspirational slot, and the reception was great. I went with a purpose, to start some short circuits in attendees’ brains…and the attendees went into the right mood.
I tried to show why playing is so damn important, why being a grown up don’t have to be boring and bottom line, when anyone is happy and playing, their creative side – yes, each and everyone can be creative – will bring crazy ideas. Afterall, we were young and kiddos before so we just need to remember how we felt and what we did…and start doing it again in life and in work.
I had a blast and would love to thank Hugo Silva for the invitation and for all organization…and of course to every attendee, each smile, each raised eyebrows, each interaction … that’s why I do this. A big thank you ZON, hope to see you all another time.
If you would like to have me to give a “brain short circuit” to your team, just drop me an email saying “Hi!”, I would love to help you out
