2018: A Year In Review

Eaglecrest Team Rgb 300Dpi 1

Once again, we're sure this year has gone faster than any before. Projects we were working on in April feel like yesterday and we have still left a few of those New Years resolutions back in the first week of January. But when you look back on what we've achieved this year, you realise just how big this year has been!

We're taking a wee trip down memory lane - taking a moment to pause and reflect. But before we do, we would like to extend a massive thank you to you and our team, because without you, none of this would have been possible!

Some new partnerships

This year, we proudly made the decision to support Australian Defence Force Reserves, become a major sponsor of Launceston Tornadoes and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

Locally, we are getting in behind the Eagles Softball Club and Evandale Eagles Cricket Club.

A couple of events

This year was a big one for some exciting IT events! We teamed up with Launceston Chamber of Commerce and TasICT to bring you Tapas & Technology in February with special guest speaker John MacLeod, IBM's Internet of Things (IoT) Specialist.

We did it all again in September with a Cybersecurity focus lead by Jeremy Levy from Witz Cybersecurity and Hayden Armstrong from Armstrongs Insurance.

In October, we teamed up with FutureFest to teach teachers how to teach VR in the classroom and in November we celebrated our rebrand with close friends of Eaglecrest.

We added a few to our crew

Our team grew with the addition of:

  • Shakierra Hudson - Trainee Technician
  • Kyle Howard - Technical Sales
  • Jack McKercher - Trainee Technician
  • Shay Hosking - Professional Services Manager

Our friendly face on the from desk, Bec Perkins also stepped up to Customer Success Manager.

Pushed some boundaries

We got ourselves a little media attention

And let's not forget our rebrand

Check out all the details behind our rebrand here.

Free To Do

We’ve had a little work done lately, a little self-improvement. We’ve spent some time redefining who we want to be, what we stand for and how we make it happen. The one trait in our personality that rang true over and over was our ability to create freedom for our clients. And as we’ve spent more time exploring this, we’ve discovered we’re pretty damn ambitious, optimistic and boy do we have a can-do attitude!
