When in Rome...

After two years of Covid, almost doubling the number of colleagues in the meantime and a lot of video calling, instead of actually meeting, we are finally picking up a company tradition: Talksome is on tour again! We are moving the entire company for a week to complete a secret project. This week we are living the dolce vita in Rome.

You might say sun, ancient city and each others’ company do not make for a productive week, workwise. We admit, having some time abroad calls for some non-work related time and for much needed team-bonding fun . However, we make a full working week ensuring we complete our project and perform all of our crucial tasks at the same time. Even if we’re abroad, your platform is being watched closely :).

In 2018, we started the tradition of taking one week in a year to work on a secret project. Whilst we are always working on multiple projects, a week like this means that the whole team is working side by side, focussing on one topic only. This enables us to do a 1-week sprint and deliver (the stepping stone) to a new product.

The objective for “Talksome on tour 2022” is to finish and launch our project online by the end of the week. By that time, we aim to fulfil a wish that we have had for a long time and will help both new and existing customers.

Why are we not disclosing our project yet? We told you, it’s a secret ;). You might have noticed that we brought Taco, our mascotte, to Rome. Gathering from the pictures, he is having a blast! During this week, he will do a daily update on what he is doing and how we are progressing with our project. He might even share some details here and there, so stay tuned ;)



Just a young dreamer here! Aiming to be the catcher in the rye and all.
