Earlier this week, blueAPACHE held our sales kick-off event for the upcoming financial year. Over the course of two days, the national sales and marketing teams gathered at the picturesque Portsea golf club for a weekend of golf, team work, presentations, information sessions and shared learning.
“We are experiencing significant growth in all our territories, with the sales kick-off providing a great opportunity for experienced blueAPACHEians to collaborate with newer team members”, said Andrew Harris, General Manager of Sales at blueAPACHE. “As we continue to attract the best talent, I wanted the team to be well-versed with our suite of services, our value propositions and more importantly, to be inspired and re-energised to do what we are best at – helping our clients achieve their strategic goals.”
The event kicked off with 18 holes of golf on one of Australia’s finest courses set amongst sand dunes and with spectacular views over Port Philip bay. While some found the undulating course to be challenging, the group really enjoyed the game.
This was followed by welcome drinks and dinner in the evening when everyone had the opportunity to sit-back, relax and get to know their colleagues over dinner.
We kicked off Monday with the leadership team taking us through the blueAPACHE journey from humble beginnings to where we are today. This success is founded upon blueAPACHE’s vision for people to have secure and efficient access to their systems wherever they are, all of the time. This enables our clients to achieve success, be agile and dynamic and support their client communities. Through presentations, group discussions and brainstorming sessions, we reinforced our common goal and set the direction for the year ahead.
We also had a lot of fun. The afternoon session involved presentations by each participant. While some impressed the group with their technical knowledge and presentation skills, others scored high for their entertainment and comedic talent! There was also a blueAPACHE quiz that fostered some fierce competition and culminated in a tie-breaker.
Overall, it was great for all of us to be together, strengthen team relationships and reinforce the organisation’s strategy, individual and collective goals for the next 12 months.
