Local Guides shine at Connect Live Lima

Googler

Last week, more than 150 passionate Local Guides joined us for our second regional pop-up event, Connect Live Lima! We chose Lima, Peru because Local Guides there are working extra hard to get their communities on the map. The event was held at the Country Club Lima Hotel where Local Guides enjoyed an evening of conversation, connection, and fun.

Connect Live Lima was filled with exciting presenters. Local Guides Program Manager, @JuanCh, talked about the different ways to contribute on Google Maps and how Local Guides can score more points and make the map better for everyone. Google software engineer and Lima native, @LuisLarco, shared his experience working on Street View and demonstrated how to take great 360 photos. Local YouTuber and world traveler, Luciano Mazzetti, also joined the stage to talk about his travels and offered tips on how to write great reviews.

After the presentations, guests moved outside where they enjoyed food truck fare and traditional Peruvian bites and sipped specialty pisco cocktails and local beer. There, they also participated in a mobile photography workshop hosted by local food photographer Jimena Agois and a bakery workshop hosted by Victor Tarazona, pastry chef and owner of SugarLab.

Guests put their new review-writing tips to the test and created a map, including ratings and reviews, of their favorite places in Lima. They also enjoyed screen printing their own tote bags and posing in the 180 degree photo booth. (We love seeing these photos pop up on social media!)

 

Local Guides left the event with new Google Maps skills, delicious SugarLab creations, and hopefully some new friends. To see photos from the event, check out our Google Photos album here.

This article begins with a question, whether coincidence and chance can be a source of creativity. the more often we meet with many people, will open up new opportunities that have not been thought of, of course this can bring out a brilliant creative process and find new ideas which eventually become a discussion material. Creative Process always provokes inspiration that leads to a point of success, this is proven by Google Maps which plays an important role in the growth of the creative industry in my country and in other parts of the world. creative industry players will definitely advance their country's economy. we can see that there are enough businesses that can be generated through Google Maps, the digital creative business of course requires a creative idea that can synergize with the advancement of technology, so that it has its own market to grow optimally. Now I and my friends who are members of the Local Guides have realized how important the Google Maps Software is to continue to improve its development process. if this continues to inspire great thinkers who are involved in the development of Google Maps Software, it is likely that Digitalpreneur will emerge through the Local Guides process.

I like this article even though from a financial and connectivity point of view it is difficult to realize because of the tight time needed by our work schedule ... "Connect Live Five" has succeeded in producing a lot of smiles ....
