Last week NETbuilder travelled to Palma, Mallorca for the annual NETbuilder Summit 2015! It was a brilliant chance to catch up with NETbuilder employees and great to get everybody together again.
It was a bright and early start for NETbuilder employees on Saturday morning. NETbuilder CEO, Tony Lysak, kicked off the Summit with an inspiring keynote on how NETbuilder will be scaling up in 2016.
This was then followed by a technology update by Damien Despas, discussing how NETbuilder have consolidated during their first semester and how the technology team will be supporting the growth of NETbuilder. Damien then went on to discuss the creation of a new line of business within the company and its focus for the rest of the year.
In addition to the technology update, Enterprise Practice Manager, David Njogu, discussed how we are investing in continued development through additional training and how we have developed a clear certification program road map. David also went on to discuss how we will be conducting more reviews to help develop a progression road map for our consultants and how we will be enabling our clients to form an active part of our consultants skill development. The session was concluded by introducing the NETbuilder Tech Champion Award nominees, this new award is NETbuilder’s way of recognising the hard work our consultants do throughout the year.
Gareth Davis, Head of Academy, gave a brilliant insight into what the Academy have been up to in the past year and gave recognition to Karen Lysak, Aaron Mulholland, James Thompson, Kathryn Briggs and Matthew Barnard for their hard work throughout the year. Finally, he showed us how the NETbuilder Academy was undertaking the ServiceNow training courses in order for NETbuilder to supply the market with certified ServiceNow delivery agents..
Once day one’s internal presentations concluded, our partners and clients delivered some inspiring presentations on how they had been working with NETbuilder and provided some great tips for our consultants with how they can progress and become better consultants in the Expert Panel.
Saturday was concluded with everyone gathering for traditional Tapas at Cella Sa Presma, followed by plenty of drinks and dancing at Palma’s night-time hotspot Titos.
After, what we can call a late night, day two started slightly later at a reasonable 11am . The Marketing team delivered the first presentation of the day where they discussed what marketing have been working on over the course of the past 9 months and how they are looking to build relationships with Partners, Customers, Universities, Graduates and our Consultants moving forward into 2016.
This was then followed by our Recruitment Manager, Liam Maidlow, who gave a brilliant insight into what has changed in 2015 within recruitment. One of the biggest changes being, with our Academy now based in Manchester, Media City, the offer for graduates has changed; they are now based in a very digital location which has produced a strong bond between trainees in and outside of training and with that our recruitment team has expanded to help fill the demand for our clients.
The 2015 summit concluded at 12.30pm where many of our attendees then proceeded to the pool area to enjoy a few drinks and a swim in the sun before heading back to England.
It was fantastic to see everybody attend the NETbuilder Summit 2015 and we can’t wait to see even more of you in 2016!
