WordPress Meetup: Teamwork needs work


The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring people of all skill levels together, from beginners to WordPress professionals. WordPress Helsinki is purely organised by community volunteers, and operates under the WordPress code of conduct.

This month we have the pleasure of welcoming back Elisa Heikura (https://koodarikuiskaaja.fi/) as a speaker. While not directly linked to WordPress, she will give an important talk about teamwork and what you can do to make the experience better.

Elisa describes her talk as follows:

“People don’t care which company they work for. They care which team they’re on. And rightfully so, because most work is done with teams (even if our contributions sometimes feel isolated and lonesome). Not to mention teams with best collective intelligence and teamwork outwit easily those with higher average IQ. But it is not such a simple thing to be a good team player, team leader or a human being, for that matter. So what can you do?”


17:15 – Doors open
17:30 – Opening words
17:40 – What are outstanding teams made of and how to be part of such a team?
19:00 – Drinks & networking at Nordcloud
19:30 – Teerenpeli, Kamppi

This session will be in English.

Drinks & snacks will be provided by UpCloud (https://upcloud.com/).

As always, you’re more than welcome join us for drinks later at Teerenpeli in Kamppi after the talk if you can’t make it earlier or just want sit down and chat with others from the local community.
