Highlights From Our Annual Company-Wide Summit: Connect 2017
July 12, 2017
This year, over 300 ‘Coders gathered in Nashville, Tennessee for our fifth annual all-hands summit — Connect. Members from all five of our offices came together under the southern sun for workshops, speaker sessions, and friendly competition to focus on this year’s theme of “Building the Future.”
Connect was broken out between two days. Day one consisted primarily of dynamic speaker sessions, and Day two focused on immersive breakout sessions, workshops, competitions, and insights from our platform partners, such as Facebook and Pinterest. The team mapped out the coming years at SocialCode, refined our longterm goals, and reflected on our values as a company.
Connect embodies the collaborative spirit of SocialCode, allowing the entire company to come together and be inspired by the bigger picture. We listened and learned from thought leaders in the tech and advertising space during day one speaker sessions, while our smaller, breakout session gave us the opportunity to workshop new ideas, fill any learning gaps, and collaborate in a smaller, more intimate setting.
This annual event provides employees with an opportunity to not only meet new people and celebrate our hard work, but also allows each individual to witness the moving parts of SocialCode coming together. Members from all of the five offices joined one another to cultivate new relationships, using our collective energy and brainpower to build the future of the company in “Music City.”
Each member of the SocialCode team is highly impactful to the business, and Connect provides them with the chance to reflect on how they have positively contributed to the company over the past year, and how they can continue to grow moving forward. We had a blast in Nashville, and we are excited for the year ahead!
