Interview

Unplanned Encounters: From a Casual Meetup to a Tech Event Influencer

While some paths are meticulously planned, Zivile’s entrance into the tech event space was as spontaneous as it gets. Ben recalls how Zivile transitioned from a casual encounter at an event to a prominent contributor on the Sesamers blog.

Zivile remarks, “It was an accident… but sometimes the best opportunities in life are not the ones you look for, but those that find you.”

Embracing Failures: The Resilience Behind Tech Event Success

Zivile’s story is a testament to the importance of embracing failure and change. Her attempt at launching a social media platform didn’t go as planned, but this setback served as a catalyst for her eventual success. “I was still very young, very naive,” she says, and sometimes “burned out.”

But through these experiences, she found her way into the Danish startup ecosystem and discovered her passion for tech events.

The Early Bird Takes the Mic: Leveraging Unusual Experiences

Interestingly, Zivile’s flair for hosting events started at the tender age of eight with a TV gig in Lithuania.

“If you start telling me about advertising studies and working, that’s kind of boring,” Ben playfully notes, emphasizing how unique experiences often make the most captivating stories.

Pioneering Through Pandemics: Finding Opportunity in Adversity

The global lockdown posed significant challenges for the events industry, but Zivile saw it as an opportunity to innovate.

“I jumped straight into the hackathon,” she says, demonstrating her ability to pivot and thrive even during difficult times. This period of adversity proved to be a catalyst for her growth and further involvement in the tech event space.

The Art of Authenticity: Crafting Stories Through Perception Paradox

Zivile’s journey culminates in the creation of her podcast, Perception Paradox, which she describes as a channel to share inspiring founder stories that otherwise might remain untold.

It underscores her belief in the power of authenticity and storytelling. “I’ve realized also how important it is to have a good host and MC because it’s someone who sets the energy,” she shares.
