I went to Bizcamp Belgium today, loved it. This is the definition of the event from their website:
Bizcamp is an unconference that is organized by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, that is based on the idea of Barcamp.
Barcamps are unconferences where you go to network, learn and share knowledge. These events are free to go to but you’re expected to help out or give a presentation. Sales pitches are out of the question though, you can’t just come and advertise what you sell or do.
Quite a vehemently crowd, I must say, people talking about taking risks, creating value and finding the best way to get a business thriving. Met with a few other project managers too, and that wasn’t surprising. In the end, every phase of growing a business is a project.
I’ll share my take-aways after, saying thanks.
Totally not interconnected list of things I learned:
I ended up doing an ad-hoc talk about the value of QR Codes, with mobile taking off the last year, it has become something of a peculiar interest to me. The larger then expected turnup at my talk kind of surprised me, I didn’t have slides or anything prepared, but it was fun. Might post about it over at Heymans.org some time, who knows.
