Timișoara Business Mixer 2019
16th October @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Timișoara Business Mixer is the 4th conference organized by ABSL, dedicated to the local business services community and the western region of Romania.
The theme for this event is Today’s world of Business Services: Keeping pace with the speed of change.
Change is the only constant in life, as a Greek philosopher once said. In today’s world, it has become imperative for the business services companies to maintain high levels of agility, business flexibility and organizational ability in order to be innovative and explorative.
It’s a strong pressure with multiple transformational triggers all present at the same time, all equally intense; therefore companies need to remain relevant and adapt to the next development.
But driving change successfully is one of the more difficult aspects of organizational leadership and corporate management. Moreover, employees face these changes on different levels: from their own career perspective to their everyday tasks while keeping up with other changes in the organization.
What are these triggers, how are they changing the business service sector and what is our community doing to keeping pace with the speed of change?
Let’s discuss it together at Timișoara Business Mixer 2019!

Greetings from Ciprian Dan, ABSL Vicepresident & Location Lead, Wipro
10:15 -11:15 | Workshop
- Manage change effectively [Language: RO]
Speaker: Ovidiu Palici – Senior Trainer, Dale Carnegie Romania
As managers you are responsible for three clear areas of change management: managing organizational change, individuals during organizational change and yourself during organizational change. By taking a prepared, organized approach, you can plan and execute the necessary strategies for guiding your organizations through times of change.
11:15 – 12:30 | Knowledge Sharing Session – Experts’ insights (part I)
- Connected by Skanska or the 10 apps in 1 solution for the friendliest workplace
Speaker: Ștefan Toma – Project Leader, Skanska
- Act fast, hire faster. Optimizing the attraction of key talent.
Speaker: Georgiana Grama – Recruitment Team Leader in Business Services, Hays Specialist Recruitment Romania
In a time where everything is about being efficient and productive, successful recruitment is a direct reflection of the professionalism of a business. Hays will provide details on how to win the talent game of a full employment and increase recruitment efficiency in the business services sector.
- Workplace strategy is changing fast. But there are trends we expect to last – and add value – even for the most traditional companies.
Speaker: Marius Șcuta – Head of Office Agency and Tenant Representation, JLL Romania
Since the physical workplace is no longer mandatory, employers are making it more appealing to be there, and easier than ever to collaborate. Technology companies are pioneers of this trend. They’ve challenged long-held expectations (for instance that everyone needs his or her own desk and that senior employees get window offices) and defined what the modern workplace looks like. But how do you differentiate between a passing fad and lasting feature? Are open floor plans good or bad? Is it better to work remotely or is collaborating in person more productive?
12:30 – 13:00 | Coffee Break
13:00 – 13:45 | Knowledge Sharing Session – Experts’ insights (part II)

Speaker: Marius Marza – Regional Director, Corporate Office Solutions
1. How empowering people to change their workplace can accelerate the adoption of Agile.
2. Complexity has dramatically changed in just a few decades. Things used to be easier. Complexity requires a different procedure. Agile methods systematically reduce uncertainty in situations that you cannot plan for.
3. Our prior space and furniture were fixed in place. Now, we feel empowered to move furniture, change our seats, even borrow stuff to make our space better
