Impero take ISTE 2018!
Last week, we touched down in Chicago, Illinois to share our knowledge and showcase our array of products at ISTE 2018! On Sunday morning, colleagues from the Austin office joined those from the U.K. team powering through their 8 hour flight from London. For many of them, this was the first time they’d met, so the afternoon was the perfect opportunity for exploring the city and getting to know each other whilst checking out the several bars Chicago has to offer, all before getting up bright and early to speak to all the delegates at ISTE the next day.
England set the tone for the beginning of ISTE with an astonishing 6-1 win over Panama in the World Cup, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the U.K. team, getting them and the Austin team raring to get to the booth. Throughout the several days at ISTE 2018, the interaction with the educational leaders was invaluable, allowing us to have meaningful conversations around key topics such as student wellbeing and demonstrating how Impero can support schools in creating a safe environment for students to learn and grow while detecting a broad range of online dangers. Our team reflected on their time at ISTE 2018, and here is how they summarized their trip:
“I had the pleasure of representing Impero at ISTE 2018 in Chicago. The entire experience was amazing! I got to meet some incredible educators, Directors of Technology & the youth which will be the future of this country. It was also great spending quality time, coming together as a team for Impero but bonded as friends after work hours. I am looking forward to representing Impero at ISTE 2019 in Philadelphia!”
– Vishal Iyer, Vice President of Sales
“I really enjoyed connecting with so many individuals and giving them the knowledge of what Impero does for education. A few highlights for me were connecting with the President of Business for SXSW Edu, a big education tech event held in Austin. He was so delighted to hear what Impero does and how we are neighbors in the downtown Austin area, he also invited me for lunch next week to discuss more about Impero! Overall I felt the event was great, especially for brand awareness as we continue our quest to expand in the U.S. market.”
– Gino Silvas, Business Development Manager
“ISTE 2018 was an eventful few days with great opportunity to put a face to the name. As well as getting to know the U.K. team more, we were able to connect with new prospects in a more engaging way and make more meaningful follow ups. I made connections with our Latin neighbors, demonstrating what Impero can deliver in Spanish and making connections in Mexico and Peru. Overall, the city was beautiful and the people were friendly.”
– Brigette Reyes, Business Development Manager
“The feedback was extremely positive, with those who have never seen Impero before being in awe of how powerful our solution is in all aspects; classroom management, network management and online safety. It was also thoroughly enjoyable to meet so many new people and be able to put faces to the names of those we’ve been talking to over the past months.”
– Matthew Camina, Business Development Manager
Time flew by but the team were able to enjoy Chicago and some of what it has to offer, taking in the last view of Chicago at the top of the John Hancock building, admiring the skyline and the wonders within it. Chicago you’ve been very enjoyable and we hope to visit your magnificent city again soon. But for now, bring on ISTE 2019!
