Tech Day 2018: An Inside Look

< 1 min read

All Insights

Last week Kraft Kennedy gathered for Tech Day, its yearly summit dedicated to knowledge-sharing, at Kraft Kennedy’s New York headquarters.

We attended thought-provoking seminars dedicated to the most innovative ideas in technology, caught up with colleagues over Magnolia Bakery’s banana bread pudding— beloved company-wide—and played the notorious Tech Day Game. The Game is devised annually by the brilliant Luke Messina, who, when he’s not helping clients solve their fiercest IT challenges, designs puzzles that can stump a whole company of very smart people (Congratulations Team 1!).

The Kraft Kennedy team gathered from around the U.S. to teach and learn from each other, strengthening the cross-disciplinary connections that our clients so appreciate when working with our teams.

Matt Evans, Solution Architect, could not be there in person, so he motored around the office as a robot, naturally.

If our internal conference intrigues you, we recommend possibly attending Kraft Kennedy University (KKU) in May.  We will be hosting a daylong educational conference in Chicago on May 1, to build on the great feedback we received following our inaugural KKU in New York.  Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from leaders in IT and from the lessons of their own peers.
