5 meetups in 4 cities closing the first year of the SDN Poland Chapter

This was an incredible year for us and for the Polish community of service designers! Not only we founded the SDN Poland Chapter and held the inaugural meeting. We held as well the Chapter’s co-creation workshop and a series of 5 meetups in 4 cities integrating the community of service design professionals and enthusiasts. On top of it, we received the 2018 SDN Chapter Award for the Best Public Relations. What a year…it set us the bar for the next year way up high. But before we present you our plans for the second year of SDN PL, we will shortly brief you on the most interesting insights from the 5 meetups in 4 Polish cities: Gdansk, Krakow, Poznan and Warsaw. They provided a platform of exchange on service design implementation in different sectors: consulting, banking, medical, insurance and automotive.
