Yesterday evening was the winners of SIME Awards selected. SIME Rising Star of the North winner: Spotify. SIME Grand Prize winner: Apple iPhone.
For me the winner this year was the consumers. Why? Because nearly every successful IT companies I interviewed did told me that they hire talent from their fantribe! And without this fans they would not be so successful!
Thanks to Ola Ahlvarsson for being pure energy and a great moderator. SIME conference first day was entertaining, but the second day was much more hard core inspiration. Speakers where focusing on how to improving business (most people I talk with liked day two).
