First meet-up SDN Ukraine

On May 25, 2018, we managed to gather a wonderful group of Service Design practitioners, along with several strong opinion leaders on SD and relevant topics. During the meet-up, the group aimed to understand better Ukrainian SD landscape.

According to the plan we decided to initiate a power group (A-Team) to move faster and along several diverse directions, such as: #IT / #Retail / #Org-Design / #SMB-Design / #Digital-Transformation. The final list of directions will be decided after second meet-up – the last one for a hand-picked audience. 
 
We presented SDN Mission and Goals and started working toward the first pack of Registrations, to make a presentation of Ukraine in SDN more noticeable. We're working towards making first checks go to SDN from Ukraine :)
 
We thank all the people who found time to help establish an understanding of future steps of SDN Ukraine! Special thank goes to Iryna Bondarenko, current SDN Member for sharing her vision and perspectives on SD development in Ukraine.
