Meetups This Week
January 12, 2015
The spirit of reflection that accompanies a new year is still present as eight QS meetups in four countries get together this week. Munich, in particular, will be discussing how to use QS tools to help track and reach goals for 2015.
A common resolution is to lose weight, and weight management is the focus of the event in Stockholm today. Their show&tell talks include one person who, while on parental leave, lost 6 kilos by playing games and the story of a woman who used running and self-tracking to lose half her bodyweight.
One thing that I love about collecting the upcoming meetups is seeing the different formats that local organizers are adopting to serve their community. In England, the group in Cambridge are starting the year with an exciting launch event to engage their community. In addition to the classic Show&Tell talk, they are experimenting with their format by having a talk focused on QS technology, as well as, a “researchy” talk to tap into the academia presence in their membership. In the other direction, the Dallas group are keeping things informal and casual with a chat over dinner.
To see when the next meetup in your area is, check the full list of the over 100 QS meetup groups in the right sidebar. Don’t see one near you? Why not start your own! If you organize a QS meetup, please post pictures of your event to the Meetup website. We love seeing them!
