During the final week of July the operations team at Smeetz descended on Lausanne, Switzerland: the beautiful city that is home to the company’s head office. The company gathering was hosted by l'Hermitage Fondation - a renowned museum in Switzerland and valued Smeetz customer. In a week of glorious sunshine, Smeetz team members from Switzerland, France, USA, the UK, and elsewhere, came together for two days of internal workshops and team-building.
Over the course of those two days Smeetz colleagues shared knowledge, ideas and best practices on subjects ranging from day-to-day efficiency, marketing and brand awareness, to building the most effective customer relationships. Culinary creativity - which delightfully tickled the taste buds - along with memory and LEGO skills - which were less than stellar - were also put to the test.
Baptiste Guyon, Product Manager at Smeetz noted that: “the global workshop allowed us to learn a lot from each other.” As a company we understand that learning never stops, and that improvements in the way we work can always be found. Smeetz refuses to become complacent or static.
Thus, the purpose of the inaugural summer workshops event - which has become an annual staple in the Smeetz calendar - was to sow the seeds for better ways of working and, consequently, deliver even better results and service to our growing customer base.
Alexandre Martin - CEO at Smeetz - remarked that: “these moments are very precious to build a shared vision together, collaborate more efficiently and set the path for the future.”
Smeetz already represents the future of a unified, data-driven commerce solution for attractions. Smeetz is acknowledged as a thought leader in the world of leisure and we have cultivated a reputation as a driving force for transformation in the attractions industry.
The core strength underpinning that reputation is the magnificent people who proudly call Smeetz their employer. The passion and belief in the Smeetz mission was palpable throughout the two days as colleagues learned, laughed and bonded together. With events like the summer workshop, our customers will reap the rewards of the seeds that an incredible Smeetz team continues to sow.
