This session will help you to differentiate your product through quality, by thinking more deeply about your audience - their values, needs and expectations - to create the most effective campaigns and ultimately help build better products.
Using case studies from a wide range of industries, this session will give you practical steps, useful tools and plenty of inspiration..

2019 September 17-20 Tel Aviv Network meeting " Education 2030"

Dates have changed due to elections on September 17th in Israel (some good background information on : wikipedia. In Israel, this means that the 17th will be a holiday, so the conference " Shaping the future" had to be reorganised.

The date is now the 18th. The venue is the university. That means that the EEPG network meeting has to be on the 19th, which is the Thursday. In brief:
17th arrival and get together (venue to be updated)
18th shaping the future (Tel Aviv university)
19th EEPG network meeting (offices of CET)
Since Friday the 20th is not a working day, we will probably only have one full day for the network meeting. However, we'll keep the option of a "half-Friday" open.

For registration, please go to this page.

Further information will be posted as soon it becomes available
