The in-depth learning session including strategies and insights on innovations, interactive workshops, fireside chat, panel discussion, tech talks, technical deep-dives and more. While the key take-away were about innovation and technology, here are some interesting moments that you wouldn’t want to miss knowing about.
Fireside chat of 'Thalaiva' Dave Limp with Deepti Verma
Yes, that’s right! SVP Devices and services Dave Limp was referred to as ‘Thalaiva’ of AITC by Director ICC Regional HR Deepti Verma during the fireside chat session. Speaking about Amazon as a company and its growth until date, Dave was quick to mention “We have built a culture of builders”. He added that, “We need to stay closer to our customers and we need to build mechanisms to stay so close to them that we can hear what the customer has to say”. And the powerful statement by the Thalaiva had the audience applauding loud and clear!
An interesting format of presentation, wherein each talk is no more than 5 minutes long and with precisely 20 slides, each slide is shown for 15 seconds only and then automatically advanced. There were 5 technical presentations that covered topics such as fast delivery, technological innovation in customer satisfaction and more. This was a unique and one of its kind session.
Speed mentoring session
Ever walked in to a tech conference which hosted poster presentations and device experience for every walk-in audience? At the AITC there were booths with latest technical devices including Alexa enabled soft toys and other virtual reality and tech driven projects that offered real-time experience to every walk-in member.
High-energy dance session with Afro Drum Cycle
Now this was some interactive fun and dance session by the Afro Drum Cycle group from Gana, Africa. Over and above learning a few steps that are in tune with drumming, we also learnt that DJEMBE means a drum and if someone is singing to you saying ‘ Bajo Bajo’ your immediate response should be ‘baaaaaajo’ at a much slower and elongated tone!
The venue was a visual treat for Amazon employees, who, following the event, walked towards the setting sun and soaked in the day’s information with purpose.
