“Working closely with sales is crucial to the success of our marketing initiatives and enables Spectra to achieve its overarching company objectives to satisfy our customers,” said Spectra Vice President of Corporate Marketing Betsy Doughty. “Holding a Kickoff meeting allows the entire organization to come together to intentionally launch the next 12 months. Team members leave empowered with a renewed sense of commitment.”
Day one focused on discussions about customers and markets; the company’s industry position; and our performance to date. The end of the day highlighted the organization’s top achievers, acknowledging their accomplishments for the year. Day two was dedicated to customer and partner presentations, offering Spectra’s Sales and Marketing organizations a deeper understanding of the unique aspects of these core relationships. The Partner Showcase followed, with team members connecting one-on-one with technology and channel partners, enabling deeper conversations for joint initiatives. Finally, the third and last day of Spectra’s Kickoff Event featured updates from the Spectra Product Management team. In addition, flash talks on recent sales success stories allowed representatives to share how Spectra has helped customers from around the globe meet their most challenging data storage dilemmas. The team also built camaraderie over after-hour gatherings. An all-employee meeting and picnic wrapped up the week. Nathan Thompson, Spectra’s CEO, provided an overview of the year and reiterated the company’s mission to develop, sell and deploy the highest quality and most secure data storage solutions to help our customers collect, use, monetize and preserve society’s digital information forever.
