22 MAY 2014--CHICAGO&mdash Dscoop looks to create a unique learning environment at the Dscoop Grandmasters Summit in Budapest, Hungary on 25-27, June. The Summit goes beyond the surface of sessions on business topics by creating cohorts of like-minded business owners who move through in-depth, hands-on workshops together over the course of the three day event. Workshops debuted at the Summit will give attendees the opportunity to explore topics like business strategy, leadership development and sales and marketing in ways that have never before been offered at a Dscoop EMEA event.

The workshop format was designed to encourage collaboration, a foundation of Dscoop events. Workshops are made up of a smaller group of attendees who stay together through their selected education schedule. All attendees will participate in four of the five available workshops. Throughout the day, attendees will work together as teams to solve business challenges and learn how to take their businesses to the next level of productivity and profitability.

The workshops at Dscoop Grandmasters Summit were developed with input from Dscoop members globally and are based on their unique opportunities and challenges. The content was co-developed by the presenter and Dscoop University to ensure it aligns with real industry challenges and has takeaways that attendees can apply directly to their business.

Workshops available at Dscoop Grandmasters Summit include:

  • Strategies for Growth Focused Organisations, Graeme Harper, Imparta
  • Realise Your Potential - Developing a High Performance Environment, Steven Bussey, Imparta
  • Service Design – Moving from Products to Services, Marc Fonteijn, 31Volts
  • Leadership to Change Behavior, Jan Heijneman, UNC Delta
  • Talk the Talk – Holding Meaningful Conversations with Marketers, Sima Dahl, Sway Factory

All presenters share a passion for business improvement and growth which is was a key factor in selection for the Summit.

More information on the workshops available and presenters at Dscoop Grandmasters Summit is available at Dscoop.org/Workshops.

Quotes
“The workshops at Dscoop Grandmasters Summit are a direct response to member input on the importance of education focused on strategy and growth,” said Peter Van Teeseling, Dscoop EMEA Director. “Through Dscoop University, the workshop presenters have developed curriculum that goes beyond what you would receive in a 45 minute conference session and gets to the core of what our members need to know to grow their own businesses. This format allows for attendees to spend 3 hours strategizing, collaborating and sharing knowledge with their peers and presenters in a community setting.”

— Peter Van Tesseling, Dscoop EMEA Director
"Product oriented companies have to deal with the struggle on how to escape the daily price competition. Finding new opportunities to create added value for customers is key in this scenario. Service design is a new approach that helps companies to innovate their way out of the commodity trap,” said Marc Fonteijn, 31 Volts about his session on Service Design.
