A couple of years ago, I volunteered at a centre for older people, teaching them basic computer skills.
I didn’t understand why one student was gamely struggling through the lessons, until one day he brought in a piece of paper. Written on it: his son’s Skype name.
I helped him install Skype.
Within a few minutes, he was on his first-ever video call, calling his son on the other side of the world. Outside of photographs, that was the first time he’d seen his son’s face in months.
TL;DR: Tech is amazing, but often what’s really amazing is what it empowers humans to do.
That message is at the heart of Techfestival 2019 in Copenhagen, where Pleo is delighted to be a partner.
What is Techfestival?
Techfestival is a big deal. Only in its third year, it’s already becoming one of the must-visit annual tech shindigs in the Nordics.
This year, it takes place September 5-7th, with an impressive programme promising talks, activities and events. The focus is technology’s impact on how we work, learn and play.
A couple of sessions cover topics that are especially close to our hearts at Pleo:

After the panel talk, we’ll be hosting drinks around by the Papa Bird bar. if you see any of our team out and about, feel free to grab us to talk tech, people, business spending or anything else that tickles your fancy – and we’ll buy you a drink on us.
