Welcome to Strateski

18th – 25th January 2019, Les Contamines- Montjoie

At Word-Connection, we have organised an altogether different kind of conference. Offering outstanding networking opportunities, an agenda tailored to your priorities and a compelling combination of skiing and productive discussion, Strateski is not to be missed!

When you have a mountain to climb

Tired of the same old conference format? The formality of these events and the number of people attending them can prevent you from getting the most out of your visit. Those annoying fixed agendas often mean that the issues which really matter to you are never discussed. To make matters worse, you rarely get the chance to network and build lasting relationships with your fellow professionals. 

Going downhill is a good thing!

But you will find that things are very different at Strateski, an unconference conceived and hosted by Word-Connection for the benefit of our fellow language service providers. Boasting an informal atmosphere and flexible agenda, Strateski enables you to find both your voice and your edge!

You can look forward to networking on and off the snow, discussing the issues which face your business and evolving solutions to the problems you and your company face. Business is so often conducted on golf courses around the world, so why not on the slopes instead? 

Opportunities at every turn

The agenda for the unconference will be established in advance by the participants via Connection, a private network exclusively for Strateski attendees. The industry talks given at the event are then guaranteed to focus on the issues which most affect the group. 

There will be plenty of time during the unconference for informal chats and building relationships. Strateski will also feature problem solving via the Vistage Issue Processing Framework, a system founded on the principle that many heads are better than one.

Carving your way to success

The event is based at the gorgeous Chalet Hôtel Restaurant L’Etape, a ski-in, ski-out venue in the French Alps. Talks and meetings will take place each day at various points throughout the stunning resort. What’s not to like about skiing your way to success with like-minded people who speak your language? 

There’s 120km of groomed pistes to explore during the week with something to suit beginners and advanced skiers alike. The mighty Mont Blanc provides an inspiring backdrop for the event and you will enjoy unrivalled views of Europe’s highest peak as you tackle the blues, reds and blacks.
