Online conferences, what’s the deal? | Amsterdam @ Work PILOT

Cathy & Julian 07/09/2020

Julian van der Wetering and @CathyCentral introduce the Amsterdam @ Work radio show and podcast series, covering local employment and business issues for Amsterdammers, businesses based in Amsterdam and those thinking about working here one day.

In this pilot episode, our special feature is on various Amsterdam conferences going online in September and October 2020 due to the current coronavirus crisis. This includes exclusive clips from one of TNW’s recent couch conferences, Re:Brand, but also we talk about the upcoming community-building event, BASE Conference aimed at local scale-ups, and much more.
