Pontoon in Amsterdam: CWS Summit Europe 2015

Amsterdam is not only worth a trip when the sun shines offering visitors an opportunity to  explore the gorgeous city of canals by boat. As a conference venue, Amsterdam is quite outstanding. This year’s CWS Summit Europe, for example, took place on April 21-22 at the Hotel Okura, a world-renowned venue for the two-day conference aimed at personnel services, HR professionals and technology providers in Europe. CWS holds additional conferences throughout the year for the Asia Pacific and Americas regions.

Selected participants
With more than 300 participants, the CWS Summit Europe (#cwss15) was well attended. In addition to lectures and workshops, there was also space for networking, such as the roundtables sessions in the lobby. Refreshment breaks in-between presentations were also a good excuse to follow up on conversations and meet new people in the exhibition hall.

Tom Mason, SVP EMEA Pontoon, took the stage on April 22. His presentation titled “”Building the Business Case SOW”” can be found, here. Photos from the event are on the Pontoon Germany Facebook page and we’ve even put together a teaser video.

Excellent insights
Overall, the event left a very positive impression. Mike Wachholz, Global President Pontoon, who was a participant at the CWS Summit, feels it is particularly noteworthy that “organizations are aspiring to understand, launch and grow global workforce management programs.” If he had to describe the event in Amsterdam in only three words, it would be: “Excellent learning opportunity.”
