09 Nov Wrapping Up Our Favorite Moments at TechServe 2016
We were excited to see many of you in Amelia Island this past weekend for the annual TechServe Alliance Conference 2016! If you survived the wind and got home without too much of a sunburn, then we’re sure you’re back into the swing of things and working away to implement some new ideas learned in the numerous breakout sessions, roundtable discussions, and speakers. The Conference reinforced some key lessons for us, which we’re excited to share below.
This year, we decided to bring our whole team along for the ride. For those who could make it, we had amazing team bonding time as well as great opportunities to build deeper relationships with our clients and industry peers.
Whether we chatted with you at our booth, met up for cocktails and dinner, or simply conversed outdoors, with the sound of the ocean waves behind us, we’re incredibly grateful for each of these relationships. We were also delighted to spend some time with many of our clients over an evening fire pit in addition to sharing a delicious meal at España Restaurant in downtown Fernandina Beach. We had great conversation and a lot of good laughs.
You’re the ones who make it possible for us to do what we love to do.
We’re a company that values our team members, working upon the core belief that we wouldn’t exist without them. The conference was an incredible opportunity for teamwork and bonding, learning more about each other and supporting everyone in their personal and professional lives. We know that this time together is what enables us to achieve greater results for our clients.
Throughout the conference, we noticed that a reoccurring theme is how to market yourselves as a differentiated brand in an overcrowded marketplace. For many of our clients, and for many new faces we met at the conference, that differentiator is the high value you place on building genuine, long-term relationships. You truly care about the people you’re working with, and that core value was incredibly apparent in the community support and relationship-building we saw at TechServe 2016!
It was an experience that made us keenly aware of our own role in leveraging your strengths into a well-crafted message that spans your website, blog feed, email campaigns, sales collateral, and more. We’re so honored to partner with great companies to do just that.
If we missed you at TechServe, we’d love a chance to catch up. Shoot us an email or drop us a line.
