An invitation to Sydney (and global) crowdsourcing workshops

I hope you can make it!

Sydney will be the site of the launch of a global series of crowdsourcing workshops over coming months in Sydney, Amsterdam, Cologne, London, Paris, Brussels, New York, San Francisco and other cities. I am very excited about the workshops, the material we’ll cover, and what we’ll learn during the workshops to help create the forthcoming Second Edition of Getting Results From Crowds.

Below is the announcement of the Sydney workshops. Please pass this on if you think people would be interested! :-)

Crowdsourcing Workshops: Getting Business Results

Sydney, Monday 16 April
Getting Results From Crowds: 9:00am-1:30pm
Crowd Business Models: 1:30pm-5:00pm

Crowdsourcing is one of the most important trends in business today. It enables organisations to draw on talent and resources from around the world, build efficiencies, create flexibility, save costs, and generate value.

Australia is in fact a global crowdsourcing hub, with dozens of significant crowdsourcing sites hailing from Australia, including world-leading platforms such as Freelancer.com, DesignCrowd, Kaggle and 99designs.

The latest highly successful book from globally recognised futurist Ross Dawson is titled Getting Results From Crowds: The definitive guide to using crowdsourcing to grow your business. He is running a series of interactive workshops around the world to help businesses to use crowdsourcing effectively.

The first of the global workshops will be held in Sydney on 16 April, swiftly followed by other major cities around the world.
