2021 in Review

new year 2


The year is coming to an end and, inspired by Spotify and their graphics, we wanted to have our year in review too.

2021 has been a year of challenges, a year of projects with direction that for many have ended up in great success. And if anything didn’t go as expected, let’s be honest, that’s the best way to learn and keep growing!

Looking back to this crazy but yet amazing 2021, we feel our Virtual Roundtables have contributed to the development and networking of many professionals that have trusted us to make it happen. We want to thank all our speakers and attendees; without them the success of these events wouldn’t have been possible. If you want to have a sneak peek, visit our calendar of events and watch the highlight videos at the right side of the page.

As the year evolved, our content did too. We started with isolation tips from the professionals, when all we could do was being patient and work from home. Soon after we dived into high performance mindset content and how to become a high performer. And the last project of the year, our Women In Tech talks, was aimed to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, however it has become one of our main projects, aiming to promote diversity in the workplace as well as to reduce the gender gap. Knowing any amazing woman working in tech that wants to talk to us? Get in touch!!

According to the analytics, and data doesn’t lie, we bring you the top 10 blogs of this 2021 in our website. We hope you enjoy reading them again and finding some inspiration for 2022.
