MARKETING DIRECTOR DEVELOPING FOR AN ACTIVE LIFE Last week I had the extraordinary opportunity to take a bus. For someone who commutes by car every day, more or less because there is no better convenient alternative, it’s some kind of a novelty. The bus, a nice new one, was very crowded. An older woman got on the bus at the same stop as me. She approached a seat where 2 young men were sitting, talking about some IT related stuff the average Kowalski wouldn’t understand. After a minute of waiting – apparently for the guys to get up for her, the woman started her pitch, “The youth of this generation is unlike in my times. Rude, only playing those computers and eating junk food. Where are we heading with such a society?” “Well,” I thought, “apparently every older generation has that deep need to complain about the younger one.” But is this fair in any regard? I admit, geeks have an infamous reputation: coding all the time, eating pizza and complaining of backache. Agreed, being a software developer is not a very active profession - long hours of sitting in front of a computer, with long hours of sitting in front of the computer, gaming in the evening, combined with rather unhealthy food patterns. It takes a toll on the body and mind. Come on! You don’t really believe that all the developers are like the above stereotype? At Goyello, we have plenty examples of geeks who bike like crazy, who run, who play basketball and do all kinds of sports. Research shows that physical exercise makes your brain work better. (1) According to a study done by the Department of Exercise Science at the University of Georgia, even briefly exercising for 20 minutes daily facilitates information processing and memory function. I have no idea if they do it because they are so clever or they are so clever because they take part in all Goyello Power Club activities. Who cares? I do trust that being active not only makes them achieve more in their job, but also in life. Needless to say, sports are also good for your muscles, heart, against stress. But also for teamwork and better relationships. Not only with your colleagues. I do lots of sports myself, which keeps me going in my busy life. Thanks to running, biking, swimming and fitness, I can cope with stress much better and I have a hobby in common with my husband and sons. According to research, if parents take part in sport, almost 86% of their children do too. (2) If you have kids, maybe you should take the decision now for their sake or, if not, just for the sake of your own mind, body, and outlook on life so that you don’t end up like that complaining old lady from the bus.

The event was a great opportunity to have a laugh with a couple of old mates, share some memories and update each other on current life events. Some old friendships were also re-established. The Norganizers were truly impressed by how the guests had brushed up on their knowledge about Goyello to participate in the traditional Goyello Quiz. Or maybe the bond was still so strong they remembered everything? The Goyello Reunion Party was a great finale of the company’s 10thanniversary celebration. We are not going to wait so long for the next reunion, that’s for sure!
New Goyello Office - Designing Our Dream Pomeranian Employer of the Year Goyello is considered a great place to work and develop. Well, it really is and here is proof positive from an eminent institution. Goyello’s achievement was recognised at the 7th annual Pomeranian Employer of the Year 2016 award at a gala ‚ held in February in Gdansk, an award which means so much to us. It is evidence that over the last 10 years we have been taking really great care of our people. “The Pomeranian Employer of The Year Award is a prize granted to entrepreneurs who in their business activities go far beyond commonly followed paths, often raising standards in the sectors they operate in. That is why we thoroughly analyse each candidate’s economic results. At the same time, we check whether they observe social responsibility rules and professional ethics principles,” Zbigniew Canowiecki, the President of The Employers of Pomerania Association said. Meeting with Satya Nadella It was a really special moment in our more than 10-year history and a great honour, indeed. In March we were invited to attend a meeting with Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. Peter Horsten and Mateusz Linda had the unique opportunity to showcase our innovative cloud-based solution developed for FLOCERT, a client based in Germany (read an interview with General Manager, CEE Multicountry CIS on pages 6-9 and the story of FLOCERT on pages 10-12). It was Satya Nadella’s very first visit to Poland. In Warsaw, together with Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Satya attended a meeting with Polish startup owners. At the var Sovia = new Tech(); conference he gave a speech on digital transformation and Poland’s promising startup ecosystem. Peter Horsten at infoShare 2017 E W S This year, for the second time, Peter Horsten was invited to host the Inspire Stage at the infoShare Conference on 17-19 May. This is where attendees come to listen to real-life business stories, presented by great international speakers. InfoShare, ‚ held in Gdansk, is the largest conference in Central and Eastern Europe, dedicated to information technology, new media and startups. The 11th annual conference gathered together over 6000 attendees, including developers, startup owners, investors, media, executives, marketing specialists and media. Moving to the new office in a couple of months and want to ensure the best work environment? You’d better ask your people what they want in the new place and let them co-create the new space. That’s what we are doing at Goyello at the moment. A team of volunteers is involved in the process of new office design, working in line with the principles of Dragon Dreaming, in order to find the best solutions for working, meeting and relaxing spaces. Dragon Dreaming is a method for running creative, collaborative and sustainable projects, built upon the following three principles: personal growth, community building and service to the Earth. It offers simple and playful holistic ideas for visionary process initiation, planning, implementation, evaluation and celebration. Each member of the team has an opportunity to share their dreams and ideas to make an overall vision out of individual ones and to make the collective dream come true. #moveITgoyello
