It was a wonderful night of company networking for all on board when Crucial, a local Sydney web hosting company, held their monthly corporate ‘Connect’ event on Dreamtime Girl Catamaran. At one moment I paused to consider the awesome collaborative brainpower of those on board- a mixture of internet geniuses, data and people managers, business innovators and creative marvels. As you probably have guessed there was no lack of conversation and inspiration.
The cloudy skies that started as a threat ended up as the star of the show by creating brilliant sunset skies to set everyone photo snapping madly. The warm hues gave their stardom away to glorious sparking lights on the water, reflecting the city skyline. Many remarks were made about what a beautiful city we live in, and how easy it is to forget that just outside the city's door is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. As a networking venue, Sydney Harbour corporate event cruise can connect people effortlessly, as they are instantly sharing not a venue, but an experience.
Crucial is a Sydney based company founded by local Bondi boy, Aaron Weller. At 22 years old, he founded Crucial in 2007 (do your sums). The company is now a major provider of web hosting in Sydney. We love local enterprise and innovation and take off our hats to the Crucial team who demonstrate that even in this impersonal data world you still put people first. The ‘Connect’ corporate event seminars have broken down walls to really get to know their customers and stimulating business networking. Recently I found it a surprise and a real pleasure to go into a website pop up support chat room and realise I could put a face to the name on the other side.
Breaking down the barriers can be fun and what a great way to do this out of four walls on Sydney Harbour.
CEO Ijan Kruizinga’s feedback shows he is always thinking about people first:
"It's the people that make an experience memorable and the team at Sydney Harbour Escapes made our charter one to remember. I look forward to spending more time on beautiful Sydney Harbour with them!”
