Celebrating Humans in Technology

people, Technology, Performance,

Meetups are independent community gatherings organized by Techfestival co-creators. Open to curious minds of all ages and backgrounds. Make sure to RSVP to secure your spot!

Whether you’re joining us from TechBBQ, Coldfront or the Techfestival Summits, this is the place to step away from technology, and talk to the most important ingredient behind any thriving business – the people behind it.

To embrace the overarching theme of Techfestival, Peakon is inviting the people behind the technology, to celebrate teams and collaboration, and discuss what motivates us to perform together.


  • Intro from Kasper Hulthin, COO & Co-founder of Peakon: Understanding the people and teams of the future
  • Inspiration from Kasper Hvidt, Sports Director, RFRSH: Lessons learned from high performing teams.
  • Inspiration from each other: Enjoy time with other people and teams over beers & burgers to discuss motivation.

What to expect

Expect friends, beers, burgers and informal talks before we all head onwards to Olafur Eliasson’s opening talk at the Techfestival mainstage at 8pm.

About Speaker

As the cornerstone of the Danish national team in handball, Kasper has successfully secured an abundance of European and World Cup medals, as well being honoured with the title of ‘Worlds best goalkeeper’ in 2009. Kasper has become a household name in Denmark, for his sheer determination, skill and support  for his team. Today, Kasper is bringing that same experience and passion to a new world of eSports, as Sports Director for RFRSH, the organisation behind the world’s leading Counterstrike team, Astralis. We are delighted that Kasper will be joining the evening to share those experiences with us, and shed light on some of the most important lessons any team can learn, from the handball court to the workplace.
