Hello judges!

Welcome to the conference page for the Summer Soft Skill conference Americas Time on the 12th  of June! This event will start at 8:00 PT/15:00 UTC.
Please be aware that there are 2 sister conference on the following Sunday the 13th of June and on the 4th July, Sunday, please head here for this event that starts 10:00 CEST/8:00 UTC and here for the event on the 4th July that starts 12:00 (noon) SGT/PHST 4:00 UTC.

You can apply for all 3 SSSC events but you can only be accepted for 1 of the 3 conferences maximum. The content per day is the same but the starting time is different. Please read the application page carefully!
There are already over 160 unique applicants for the first two events. Make you cover letter count!

The SSSC will feature a day full of soft skill seminars with presenters that have a lot of practical knowledge of their topics. The full timetable as well as the final topic names will be released at a later point, but for now I can show you most of the presenters and their topics, subject to change and not all presenters yet finalized.


The duration of sessions varies from 60 to 90 min.
Please plan around 8h for this conference including all seminars and breaks.

Ivan Petkovic – Feedback 101 in Judging (and everyday) Life
Christian Gawrilowicz – Feedback 201 – Practical Application
Meg Baum – Conflict is not a Bad Thing
Kevin Desprez – Agile Team Leading
Eliana Rabinowitz – Removing Implicit bias

There will also be the chance to ask questions before the event via a google form and these will be forwarded to the presenters for the weekend.



Conference setup

Please be aware that the setup of this conference is a bit unusual: there will be two tracks during the day that feature the exact same content but in a different order.
The attendance limit for the event is 70 attendees in total, meaning 35 per track. Attendance is limited to enable better interaction between presenters and attendees – active participation is highly wanted!

What this means for you is that you will be assigned to one of the two tracks and will be in that track for the day.
There will be smaller and longer breaks available between to refresh a bit and also you can skip up to one seminar of your choosing to accommodate for your local breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack time or for having a walk.

It is expected that you are present for the other seminars!
