Mini Conference - August Offsite

Previously we have shared the importance of maintaining our culture at Pragmateam, how we lean on a regular cadence including offsites to stay connected

Last week we experimented with the offsite format, hosting a mini conference. Each Pragmatist invited a PragmaFriend, whether it be someone they are working with at a client or someone they felt close aligned to our values and passions.

Starting with a great lunch and very energetic icebreaker, we ran a series of lightning talks throughout the afternoon. There was no specific theme to the talks, other than no boundaries, feel free to share something you are passionate about, whether it be work related or not. 

#PragmaThanks to our keynote speaker Jody Weir, to our PragmaFriends for joining us and to Pragmatists for taking the time to prepare and share.
