Hi!
Here is a fresh edition of this weeks newsletter. Before we dive in to the news, here is a bit of retrospective on last week.
On Valentine’s Day we organized Open Voice #05, themed “Integrated Voice” at a new venue (Epicenter Amsterdam). We welcomed a lot of new people to the event. Sam’s guess is about 1/3 of the attendees, a great number! Later this week we’ll share the audio recordings, decks and photos. Expect a link for that next week. Also, we announced Open Voice #06 for April 16th. Add that to your calendar.

That’s it for this week. We’ll record and edit the next episode of the Voicecast today in order to have it live by the end of the day.
We’ll be back next week, see you then!
Cheers,
