Contractor’s Event – 16th May 2012
The oDesk team had a Facebook voting system which was used to select the top two countries which have maximum active and engaged oDesk contractors. Bangladesh managed to be one of those two countries besides Philippine. Matt Cooper (Vice President of Enterprise and Business Development of Odesk) and Monica Chua (Contractor Marketing Manager) were there to appreciate the Contractors. Odesk just invited around three hundred oDesk contractors from the whole of Bangladesh and Outsource Bd had 3 from the 300. This event was great for networking and learning from each other.
Launch of Our Physical Office – 30th May 2012
As the firm grew, Outsource BD found the need to open formal brick and mortar offices. This was in an effort to better streamline and coordinate our operations. On 30th May, 2012, the members opened the office in Dhaka. The firm’s 20 members of staff now operate from a fully-fledged office running several departments which include the SEO department, SMM department, SEM department, Graphic design department, content writing department, and a Multi-media department.
The launch itself was a great milestone for the firm and its members. The event hosted about 100 guests and the two chief guests were Dr. Noor Islam and Mr. Mohammad Salehuddin. The office was well decorated with balloons and other party decorations, thanks to our enthusiastic team. The launch kicked off with prayers and was followed by a cutting of the great cake.

oDesk Client Meetup Hosted By Odesk – 5th December 2012
Another milestone for the Outsource Bd team was their inclusion in the invitation-only Odesk client meeting hosted by the oDesk and represented by International Marketing Manager, Ally Basak Russell. The event was held at the EFES Restaurant in Gulshan, Dhaka, and there were only 20 participants rigorously and competitively chosen by looking at their level of oDesk participation, level of investment, and area of specialization. Outsource Bd was represented by its founder, Md Nahid Hasan.
The meeting offered clients a great opportunity to network and learn from each other. Everyone had a wonderful time and plans were discussed for more meetings. The participants offered to host the next meeting at Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar, the world’s longest natural sandy sea beach. We all left with T-shirts in oDesk’s green corporate color after a great photo shoot beside Ally and had a wonderful buffet lunch altogether.
