What is Seven Peaks Speaks?
Firstly, Seven Peaks is an international software company located in Bangkok, we provide in-house software solutions to both large enterprises and growth start-ups through providing professional software services for websites and mobile platforms with our competitive pricing and unique business model.
Along with the rebranding of the Seven Peaks logo, we have also added a new logo and concept for our events – now known as Seven Peaks Speaks! It represents the ‘speaks’ and talks that our team members give when hosting an event to the public as Seven Peaks at our office space.

You will be seeing them a lot at Seven Peaks Speaks!
In this article, you will hear from Sireetorn Sethapanee, our senior talent acquisition, about the concept, goals and benefits of Seven Peaks Speaks.
Name and Concept
"You may be thinking, what does Seven Peaks do? And why are they called Seven Peaks? Many candidates have also asked the same questions. To answer this, Seven Peaks got its name from our founder’s inspiration of the large mountain peaks of Norway, known as the seven mountain peaks."
Introducing Seven Peaks Speaks!
"Seven Peaks Speaks sounds perfect for the concept of our team sharing their expertise, through speaking about a certain topic, to represent Seven Peaks as experts in the software and design fields."
🎯 Our mission
“The main aim of Seven Peaks Speaks is to showcase both the professional services that we provide as a software company for our clients as well a space to meet and speak to potential candidates who may be interested in joining our team at Seven Peaks. We would like to grow the concept of Seven Peaks Speaks as we will be using this concept to heavily benefit both our recruitment and client objectives as well as promote the brand awareness of Seven Peaks to our audience base.”

👋 Our audience and community
“For our events, the main audience we currently have are tech communities within Thailand, for example, people who are working or would like to learn more about mobile development frameworks, quality assurance testing, front-end/back-end development, project management and more. I think it’s very good that we already have a dedicated community here in Bangkok with the people who enjoy the same topics who share the same passion to sit together and update each other about the knowledge that they gained from our talks. It’s also very good for the networking aspect as well.
When you are talking to people who enjoy the same topics as you, it greatly improves networking to get to know each other better through sharing knowledge back and forth. From a recruitment perspective, it’s also very good to talk with people from our target audience, such as potential candidates, to know more about their passions and life goals.
Through talking during our networking sessions, we have discussed the latest new technology trends, hybrid mobile applications, new emerging mobile development frameworks, and more. I have also learnt a lot myself through talking to our audiences and potential candidates, especially about mobile development languages and developer’s best practices. For Seven Peaks Speaks, we value everybody learning from each other, both on a technical and personal level.”

🤔 Why should people join Seven Peaks Speaks?
“People who are mainly interested in technology tend to attend our events regularly. Our first Seven Peaks Speaks event at our new office, inside The PARQ building, talked about API and Quality Assurance testing, with the theme being named “Start smart with API testing”. I think it’s very beneficial to understand API testing with Postman/Newman and Fiddler which were all well-discussed by our three key speakers at that event.
We prefer to speak about real project examples and real case studies to help our listeners tackle and solve the most relevant technical issues. Another factor that our audience enjoyed was getting the opportunities to ask questions to the speakers during the event as well as discuss one-on-one with the speakers after the event. We encourage our audience to ask questions throughout the event to make our talks an interactive discussion.”

🤝 Seven Peaks Speaks for recruitment
“We have successfully hired candidates through our events. The priority of our event is for the audience to speak to our team and make the most out of our event. Many people who visit or who attend this event are developers, therefore they may be interested in topics like Android and iOS mobile operating systems. The networking part is where we recruiters tend to be most active; as we actively talk to interested candidates, understand them, get to know them better and exchange business cards to stay in touch. Our attendees like to network with our team after the event just as much as we do!”
🌐 Impact of digital transformation for events
“It’s true that everything around us is now becoming more digital than ever, thanks to being in the digital transformation age. However, I still feel that physical events are very effective for networking with people. But our digital events, such as online webinars, are also becoming more effective to meet and talk to people as well. They each have their own pros and cons. But during the physical events, I can meet the attendees, clients and potential candidates in person, which is more preferable over digital calls or online communication channels.
I think that meeting a new person physically is more important, so we can know their personality in a stronger way than meeting digitally. Another benefit of a physical event is that we can still record the content and share it online for virtual live viewing at the same time – which can be done with today’s technology tools at our disposal.”
🙋♀️ A new era of events
“As a growing company, this means that we are growing fast with more team members from different parts of the world joining our team. After moving to a more modern office space and rebranding our logo to a new look, we need to constantly improve to be better than previous years including further improving our events. We would like our events, now known as Seven Peaks Speaks, to be casual, fun, and educational so that the people will come here and will go back with gained knowledge.”
🏆 Get ready for Seven Peaks Speaks!
“We are continuing to build our strong Seven Peak Speaks audience and would like to continue growing our community of attendees who are interested in our events to always come back for more. It is because of our events, that we still remember and stay in touch with attendees that we met for the first time – even since our very first event years back!
Throughout the years, the majority of our attendees are either potential candidates who are looking to join our team, potential clients who would like to know more about our services, or professionals and students who would simply like to learn more from our talks.”
