The importance of feedback - Jacopo Romei

Online event

💻 Remote Interactive Meetup: "An Evening with... Jacopo Romei" We're beyond happy to welcome back one of our long-standing trainers and friends: Mr. Extreme Contracts aka Jacopo Romei. Let's go back in time (almost 20 years!) and discover what feedback, as a concept, means to Jacopo, and in which way his experiences have shaped his ideas about feedback. A talk you shouldn't miss if you're eager to understand how feedback can be used in the most efficient way for a better and successful business life. As usual, you'll have a chance to interact with Jacopo and your fellow participants by joining the YouTube chat during the live-streaming. 🎥 Live Streaming on Youtube: https://youtu.be/yc1fngch50w 🗓 When: Wednesday 29th October 2020 at 19:00 CET (Italy). 🇬🇧 Language: English 🎫 It's a free event. 👉🏾 Title of the talk The importance of feedback 🎯 Abstract Since I started practicing Extreme Programming back in 2003, I have always kept an eye on a not-so-simple concept: feedback. In the beginning, it was all about code and its correctness. As I grew up as a professional, as a consultant, and as an entrepreneur, I realized that feedback in the software industry meant much more, much broader, much deeper. Exactly 10 years ago, I tried a systematic approach to this concept. Now that I'm facing new challenges developing digital products, I decided to wrap it up again. What does feedback should mean to us all working in the digital world? What kind of feedback should we crave? How can we use feedback to enhance our chances of building a successful business? In this session, I will try to share what I learned, what I was wrong about, and what I hope to have understood correctly for the future of my endeavors. 🎙 Speaker Jacopo Romei 📰 Bio Consultant, entrepreneur, trainer, Jacopo works with teams across Italy, France & UK. He is the author of the book "Extreme Contracts" (English version coming soon). Usually, Jacopo gets hired by those willing to waste less time, money and happiness and he helps people working in teams to work better because our jobs are a significant part of our lives. Recently his main focus has been on organisations governance and contract negotiation. All in all, he hates wasting energy and since 14 years ago work is still in progress: experimenting to work ever-better, to live ever-better, moving forward, one step at a time. ❓ You'll be able to interact with your fellow participants by using the YouTube chat throughout the talk. You can also use the chat to ask questions to Jacopo during the talk. ✔ Save the link, activate and allow the notifications from YouTube, or subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/SubscribeAvanscoperta and never miss our next free online event or an update from Avanscoperta. 👉 Check out the new workshop in English by Jacopo Romei called Risk Management for Freelancers! ➡️ https://bit.ly/Risk_Management_Freelancers_Jacopo_Romei_Meetup Click on "Yes" on "RSVP" above and...

He worked and lived in Europe (6 years), Australia (7 years), and the US (6 years). He currently works with Avanscoperta. Enrico is a visual thinker, if he’s not looking in the camera he’s probably sketching the conversation–lately on his iPad. He thinks agile is not a recipe to follow but something to tailor to your complex context. He likes to prepare facilitated sessions that are purposeful and meaningful to the group. He stays well clear of any certification, he attended Cognitive Edge Cynefin Foundations and ICA ORID facilitation training and he’s a member of IAF (International Association of Facilitators). 📹 Watch Enrico introduce the Online Facilitation Lab series: https://youtu.be/Xo5z41V7SUo 👉 Check out the new workshop by Enrico Teotti called Online Facilitation Camp Praxis! ➡️ http://bit.ly/Online_Facilitation_Camp_Meetup Register on Zoom and see you online! 🙂 Team Avanscoperta #WeAreLearners
