BoS Europe Hotel Spaces Running Out
Book Accommodation at Churchill College
As Business of Software Conference Europe approaches, rooms at our venue Churchill College are becoming scarcer. As far as rooms allow, we’ll be staying onsite at Churchill College for the conference, but there really are very limited rooms left now. If you want to stay onsite at Churchill College, you need to book this week to ensure you get a space!
You can book your accommodation through the College Website here. We recommend you book Cowan Court if available – we think the rooms are nicer! Rooms are limited in number and filling up fast – book early to ensure you can stay on site.
Amir Salihefendić & April Dunford to speak at #BoS2019
This week we're excited to announce 2 brand new speakers to Business of Software Conference! At BoS Europe this April we'll be hearing from Amir Salihefendić, CEO/Founder of Doist (best known for their productivity products Todoist & Twist), and at BoS USA in September from April Dunford, Founder of Ambient Strategy and an expert on market strategy and positioning. Read on to find out what you'll learn from them:
Amir Salihefendić has been running Doist for over 10 years and employs over 60 people in 25 countries. Originally forced to hire remote employees as he struggling to find the right talent in his then-home Peru, Amir is a very vocal advocate of the benefits of remote work. He'll be speaking about his experience of building an effective team across countries and time zones and share some tips he's learned.
You'll learn: the core disciplines for building strong teams that are effective for both remote and non-remote teams, and why remote is the future of work.
Your market is crowded, your customers are overwhelmed with choices - how do you make sure your ideal customers opt for your product? Over April Dunford's career she has launched 16 products. Having run sales and marketing teams at several successful tech startups, she knows the importance of positioning your company and product well. Positioning is more important than ever yet most companies fail to strategically choose a market position for their products. April will help you think about the right questions to ensure your product is positioned well.
You'll learn: how to assess your company's positioning and improve it by centering it around your strengths, with examples of companies who've done it successfully.
