Visual Minutes – recording our Customer Conference
You may have seen our recent blog on the planning for our Customer Conference. The event was a great success, with a record number of customers in attendance at Kings Place, London.
Delegates arrived for the event from around the world and it was great to see Qube, Horizon, Planet and Qube SLM customers there in such numbers.
As you’d imagine, we’ve captured the last few Conferences on camera and video, but this year we went one step further – using Creative Connections to record the day for us. Visual Minutes is the art of capturing content and conversations and turning them into visuals. Visual content provides and ideal summary, as it is easy to absorb, understand and relate to.
A team of artists joined the various presentations throughout the day, and instead of writing down the contents of the sessions, they drew them. The artists began by capturing the address from Qube Global Software CEO John Cuppello – who outlined both our expansion plans and our commitment to our existing markets – and then keynote speaker Lord Finkelstein, who spoke about the politics of property.
The details of a range of software presentations from our teams were added to the mural – details of upcoming releases of the software with new features, as well as guides on how to get the most from the current releases of the software.
Also featured were highlights from our guest speakers from RICS, who covered an overview of the residential sector; the British Property Federation, who presented on financing real estate investment; the Building Futures Group, who looked at the challenges ahead for facilities managers and GVA, who focussed on sustainability for property and facilities managers.
The final result was an entertaining mural that provided a real talking point for the 350 delegates – and has since taken pride of place at our City of London offices.
Workplace and facility managers are under increasing pressure to provide a workplace that attracts top performers and improves staff motivation, effectiveness and retention. Balancing this with the need to continually add value to your corporation and reduce costs is the ultimate goal.
Online shopping is an ever-growing threat to physical real estates in the high street. As a consequence, retail investors face the new challenge of encouraging customers to get out of the house and visit their venues rather than spending their money online.
