IT Ukraine Association launches

IT Ukraine Association launches "Frankly about IT" podcast

"Frankly about IT" is the first podcast from the IT Ukraine Association about those who make technological changes in Ukraine, created with the support of  UKRSIBBANK BNP Paribas Group.

As the voices of the project 10 successful CEOs of companies, tech startups, managers of giant companies or small teams with multi-million dollar products will act.

They will tell about "true IT" and their path from a dreamer to a successful team leader and creator of IT products.

Who will be interested?

  • IT professionals who want to develop and create their own projects;
  • those who plan to switch to IT, but do not know where to start;
  • young people and students who are just looking for their vocation;
  • those who are interested in trends of the creative industry and the new economy;
  • everyone who is looking for motivation and a "sign" to start the path to new achievements.

Talking about IT, not everyone understands what it is really about. Often people mention big business, expensive equipment, a more relaxed lifestyle and a possibility to work from anywhere in the world. We want to dispel some stereotypes about IT professionals, because they represent the country's new creative economy and their example is truly inspiring. "Frankly about IT" is about people who made the thorny path to success. This is a project about how not to give up and where to look for motivation based on examples of people who nowadays are about the face of Ukrainian IT,

- Viktoriya Fedorenko, Project Manager, Deputy Executive Director of the Association.

Today, UKRSIBBANK BNP Paribas Group acts as a financial partner for 30% of the IT industry - these are leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators. But above all, these are people who believe in their ideas, work diligently on them, look for opportunities for improvement and changing the future. These people inspire and motivate. We are confident that their stories and personal experience at "Frankly about IT" will become an example for those who are passionate about the world of technology,

- Andriy Kashperuk, Deputy Chairman of the Board for Retail Business UKRSIBBANK BNP Paribas Group, added.

The host of the podcast, Dmytro Melnykovych, Vice-president for PR issues of the IT Ukraine Association and an expert in personal branding, will find out who these "IT people" really are: their routine, ups and downs, balance between virtual and real life, personal and career, about successes and failures, as well as steps that helped them reach the goal and not to give up even when it was difficult.

As a personality expert, I am interested in revealing the personality of each of the guests. An interesting flow of thoughts, fears, thoughts and life situations that will show listeners the guest from different angles. Not only as a leader, but a deeper side of the personality, more real and frank. This is a "no ties" session,

- Dmytro Melnykovych.

A new episode will be released twice a month. Soon, the podcast will be available on all main platforms of  Urban Space Radio, as well as on the  Youtube channel of the IT Ukraine Association.
