May 25th 2022

17:30 – 18:45 CET

Live from the Unity Centre, Kraków

     

A new flagship event from ASPIRE.

 

Kraków Calling is a new kind of event, a live broadcast from the top tower of the Unity Centre, filmed before a studio audience of senior executives, debating the important issues for the tech and business services sector.

On this occasion we will be discussing two important issues.

In the first part of the programme we will focus on the war in Ukraine and how Kraków as a location and we as an industry have responded to the challenge.

In the second part we will take a look at the findings of two recent reports on the future of Global Business Services and the Kraków IT Market.

The event will be run in the form of a panel discussion with input also from our audience. We will also be calling colleagues in other locations to get their perspective.

In-person participation is by invitation only.
