Team Alpha at Internet Beta 2019 – subjective report by 25wat

Here is a summary of this year’s #InternetBeta conference, attended by our Alpha team — Joanna Gancarczyk, Piotr Bardadyn and Mateusz Romanów. Almost 100 speakers, 80 speeches and 3 days — these are just a few numbers that show the scale of the project, but (from our perspective) do not reveal much about what Beta Internet is — we left the conference richer with a tonne of thoughts and a handful of business cards boding many interesting collaborations. Here are some of the key thoughts that emerged after our return to Wrocław. 👇

 

1. Wrocław took over Kielnarowa 💪

It was the first time that we were as a del­e­ga­tion of 25wat and Titans24 at Beta Inter­net. From the very begin­ning, we noticed a large rep­re­sen­ta­tion from our home­town, . It’s amaz­ing that it was near Rzes­zow that we made a lot of friends with peo­ple form Wro­claw. We built a good rap­port with Webi­ni. We high fived with Hexe Cap­i­tal. We talked with XR+, who turned out to be our neigh­bours. We drank cof­fee with Con­tent Solu­tions and dis­cussed lec­tures with Rock­et Media. And that’s just the top of the list. We feel that Wrocław needs an oppor­tu­ni­ty to net­work and we try to pro­vide a sub­sti­tute for it through our Fuck­up Nights meet­ings in Wrocław. 💬 2. Work­shops are a hot top­ic!

👉Our Alpha del­e­ga­tion had sev­er­al mis­sions to com­plete. One of them was to stim­u­late the par­tic­i­pants with a good speech! This task was con­duct­ed by Joan­na Gan­car­czyk. Dur­ing her pre­sen­ta­tion, “The Work­shop, as A Must-Have of A Suc­cess­ful Strat­e­gy”, Joan­na showed the back­stage of our strate­gic process­es, using the exam­ple of its com­po­nent, i.e. cre­ative work­shops. See­ing how much the top­ic of design think­ing was the inte­gral part of this edi­tion of Beta, we decid­ed to pre­pare a pod­cast with our pre­sen­ta­tion and make it avail­able to the pub­lic. The results will be known soon, so it is worth adding 👉25wat on Linkedln! to your observed web­sites. Judg­ing by the amount of pos­i­tive feed­back, we can see that cre­ative work­shops arouse inter­est and we will share this knowl­edge fur­ther. So stay tuned & fol­low us!  
 

3. You #Beta know it, or what we have learned 🎯

Dur­ing these 3 days we par­tic­i­pat­ed in many lec­tures. Each of us expe­ri­enced Beta dif­fer­ent­ly. How­ev­er, we man­aged to col­lect in a nut­shell what we left with:
    • 1. Katarzy­na Sow­ic­ka from Con­tent Solu­tions showed how not to waste your bud­get by cre­at­ing Con­tent Mar­ket­ing Zero Waste
    • 2. Maciej Budzich indi­cat­ed the direc­tions in which the patostream­ing #scary trend may devel­op
    • 3. Maciej Pawłows­ki reaf­firmed us in the view that a FRISed team is an effec­tive team
    • 4. Roman Łoz­ińs­ki proved that it is pos­si­ble to make mis­takes in a cor­po­rate world and to draw con­clu­sions
    • 5. Natalia Paw­lik and her team demon­strat­ed at work­shops how to cre­ate sto­ry­telling regard­ing inno­va­tions.
    • 6. Łukasz Głom­bic­ki bril­liant­ly showed how to build organ­ic ranges in SoMe and why algo­rithms love memes with Alek­sander Kwas­niews­ki.
    • 7. Matt Kurleto talked about how to man­age a scal­able busi­ness and not go crazy
    • 8. Andrzej Grusz­ka point­ed to the new trend of Inbound PR, which is worth tak­ing inter­est in.
    • 9. Mar­iusz Pełchaty pre­sent­ed exam­ples of process­es in which a chat­bot will effec­tive­ly relieve the bur­den on the Cus­tomer Ser­vice Cen­tre.
    • 10. Fil­ip Wer­stler showed how to use num­bers and data in sto­ry­telling.
    • 11. Bar­tosz Majew­s­ki used the exam­ple of Cas­beg to show how to scale up busi­ness quick­ly
     

    3. And the winner is Titans24 🏆

  • We are com­ing back from Beta with the (Titan­ic) shield lit­er­al­ly and fig­u­ra­tive­ly . Titans24 were appre­ci­at­ed by the com­mu­ni­ty and received the Audi­ence Award. We are grate­ful for every vote, every word of feed­back and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to present this solu­tion. We are proud to see that the first pub­lic pre­sen­ta­tion of the Cyber­Galaxy Guardians brought us this dis­tinc­tion. Our joy is all the big­ger due to the fact that the Jury Award went to Spec­file, who are also involved in cyber secu­ri­ty. From this place we send them our warm regards and a remote high five! This award means that talk­ing about secu­ri­ty in the dig­i­tal world is impor­tant and nec­es­sary.
  • Are we going next year? Of course we are! Best regards to every­one we had the plea­sure to meet and thank you for the won­der­ful time. We hope we see you soon­er than at the next Inter­net Beta Con­fer­ence. P.S. Big thanks also to Łukasz Bis for the invi­ta­tion, his trust and the orga­ni­za­tion of such a phe­nom­e­nal expe­ri­ence. #Thun­der­ousAp­plause The pho­tos used in the mate­r­i­al come from FB Inter­net Beta and were tak­en by Piotr Kordyś.
