November was success month at Engage and, as it turns out, having this theme was a bit of a good omen as we’ve had a lot to celebrate over the past few weeks.
Throughout November, we managed to bag a few prestigious awards, we’ve attended some special events, we’ve expanded our team and have been working on a list of ambitious and exciting new projects.
With this stream of success set to continue into December, we’ll be ending 2016 on a high and looking to 2017 as our most exciting year yet.
Here’s a look at some of our November Highlights.
If we had to choose one unique highlight of November, it would have be receiving the Rising Star award at the Deloitte Fast50 Awards.
The Deloitte Fast50 is one of the most prestigious awards ceremonies within the technology sector and the Rising Star award is quite an accolade - recognising the young company which has demonstrated outstanding growth within its first four years of business.
For us at Engage, being named as the Rising Star is a true testament to the exceptional things we’ve achieved thus far and sets a great standard for everything we plan to work towards in 2017 and beyond.
On 10th November, we attended the CIM Ireland Awards in Belfast’s Europa Hotel, celebrating the marketing achievements of businesses across all sectors, within Northern Ireland and Ireland.
It was a fantastic night and was great to be in a room full of the country’s most exciting marketing talent. To make things even better, we were delighted to pick up the award for Best Technology Marketing and were also highly commended in the Professional Services category for our work with permanent tsb.
November became somewhat of an awards season, as we ended the month by attending the Eir Spiders in Dublin.
The Eir Spiders is one of the most highly anticipated events in the digital industry calendar, celebrating the companies that have excelled with website design and creation and use of technology.
We were up for Best In Financial Services with permanent tsb and, although we didn’t win that one, we were thrilled for our clients PSNI who picked up Best User Experience for a project we completed in conjunction with our UX partners, Fathom.
We also managed to take some time out to attend the IBM Amplify conference in London. The list of acclaimed speakers gave us some incredible insight into IBM’s functionality, demonstrating actionable tips and ideas that we’re now able to use to accelerate growth for our clients.
We delved deep into the analytics features of the platform which help create a well-rounded, single view of customers.
It was great to hear from companies such as the RSPCA and emerging businesses such as Pension Bee, learning how they use IBM to deliver valuable experiences for their customers.
As an Episerver Premium Partner, we also had the opportunity to attend Episerver’s Ascend conference in London.
The conference catered for Episerver customers, partners and developers, educating the audience on Episerver’s innovative features and how they can be used to teach us more about our own customers.
We heard from the NSPCC, the Met Police and Valtech, among many others and left inspired to implement the revolutionary development and personalised marketing techniques that these companies have had so much success with.
With the end of the year in sight, look out for our full 2016 round up which will be coming soon to the Engage blog. We also hope to share some of our plans for 2017, as well as our predictions of digital trends that we expect to emerge and takeover next year.
