Just like February, this month’s review is short and sweet. It is not that we have nothing to report; on the contrary, we have been setting the groundwork for a really productive year.
For one, we have finally finalized and submitted all of our proposals for keynotes at some of the biggest Agile conferences. And speaking of conferences, Xecofy was represented at MWC 2019, which is the biggest conference for the global Telecom and IT industry — an exhilarating showcase of new technology and services related to 5G, AI, IOT and Analytics. With his vast experience in this field, it was particularly relevant for our senior partner, Ali Hasnain, to participate in it during the last week of February in Barcelona, Spain. Ali used the space and opportunity to have some meaningful meetings with CEOs and other executives from prestigious IT and Telecom companies in the world, compellingly pressing upon the need to develop an Agile mindset in order to stay ahead of the game in the evolution towards 5G, AI and Analytics.
Naveed Khawaja — our head trainer — is also preparing to present this coming month in Budapest and Amsterdam. During another event, Naveed was honored to meet with Lord Bilimoria CBE, DL at an afternoon reception to celebrate Digital Manufacturing Week 2019 (brought to you by The Manufacturer magazine). Last year, it was the biggest digital manufacturing showcase in the European manufacturing calendar, where Naveed also delivered his keynote on Purpose Powered Performance.
In addition to that, we are growing our team: we are looking to sign three MOU’s with trainers to give you the varied perspectives and experiences that make for a successful Agile transformation.
This month also delivered one extremely special moment for us as a team. Xecofy’s ethos has always been to help others be the best version of themselves. In fact, our Facebook page “Purpose Revolution” was designed to share with you the encouraging moments and stories from our work and everyday lives, hoping to inspire you to find your purpose. Although we have been doing work like this on the down low ever since our company came to be, the fact that we hope to inspire others is the main reason we, as a team, are deciding to share this now.
Last year, we put funding toward a program helping to educate factory workers, ranging between the ages of 7 to 20, in Pakistan — a country close to our hearts. Some of these students had never so much as picked up a pen before. Now, thanks to the efforts of the teachers in this training center, these kids are now able to read and write English…perhaps not yet fluently, but relevantly.
