What is EMEA SKO 2021 Virtual Experience?

Sales Kickoff is an important event for us, and our chance to share insights into the focus and objectives for the following 12 months.  

To protect the health and safety of our associates, Red Hat’s 2021 Sales Kickoff event is moving to a region-specific virtual experience again. 

Video Challenge

We want to see your creativity and passion for Red Hat shine through in team videos. Each region should create a video of up to 2 minutes to celebrate the Red Hat Values

Reach out to the relevant regional video team lead listed below to register your interest and get involved. Remember, it takes a broad skillset to plan, project-manage, script, film and edit a video, so here’s your chance to put your skills to use, and maybe learn some new ones in the process.

Your Red Hat Values video commercials will be shown during the keynotes and throughout the virtual event.

Point of contact for regional videos:

ALPS: Daniel Sokic <dsokic@redhat.com>
CEMEA: Jana Gutierrez Kardum <jchvalko@redhat.com>
GERMANY: Michelle Assmus <massmus@redhat.com>

Virtual Lunches

We all know that some of the best conversations at SKO take place over lunch, so we’re planning to bring that experience to you in a virtual format with a series of virtual lunches. A chance for open and active dialogue on topics that are front of mind for Red Hatters, including Diversity & Inclusive Meritocracy, Open Leadership, SAP and Automotive. Seats will be limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so look out for more information in the near future.  

Virtual InfoPods

Network with experts from teams across the organization to learn more about their business area and call on their expertise to help you with specific questions. We’ll be hosting virtual infopods from teams including Customer References, IBM Synergy, Sales Operations and Red Hat Cares.

What timezone will the event be delivered in?

The event will be delivered in the CET timezone. Please make sure to check settings in the event platform and select your timezone if needed.
