Thursday, September 9th saw the doors of Kubrick HQ open to our newly founded Alumni network in the first ever Alumni Social.
The network, which officially launched in April this year, has already been well-received by those who trained with Kubrick over 2 years ago, with more than 150 members signed up to partake in its initiatives and events - and counting. The social, undoubtedly the first of many, hosted some 45 Alumni at their old stomping ground to catch up with old colleagues, meet other alumni, chat with current staff to hear about what’s going on at Kubrick, and enjoy the atmosphere and games.
Charlotte Clark, Alumni Community Manager and event organiser, shares her highlights from the night:
“It was fantastic to put faces to names of so many of the wonderful members of our fast-growing network that I’ve been communicating with over the past few months. It was a pleasure to reunite so many old friends and facilitate the building of new relationships across the Alumni community. As we continue to expand our offering of opportunities to our Alumni, from brand amplification to our upcoming mentorship scheme, we want to ensure we keep the social element at the heart of what it means to be a Kubrick Alumni member.”
Due to the incredible speed of Kubrick's growth throughout the past couple of years', securing the number 2 spot on the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 in 2020 and earning the title of fastest growing consultancy in Europe in 2021, the network in set to boom in the coming months as the rate of consultants finishing their initial 2-year journey with Kubrick to become Alumni will accelerate. Kubrick have trained and added over 700 professionals to the data, AI, and cloud technology space since 2017, with nearly 400 of those selected to train in the last year alone. It is easy to imagine what possibilities future Alumni events will hold as they too will inevitably grow; the opportunities they will have instore for attendees, as they mingle with data and technology champions across industries, will be something to envy.
Simon Walker, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Kubrick, reflects on the importance of the event:
“When we founded Kubrick, we realised we had created a model that was truly special because wherever our consultants ended up after their time training and with clients, they would always have the network that they had built at Kubrick to turn to for advice and support. After a long and confusing year and a half which prevented people everywhere from gathering and sharing in conversation, it was phenomenal to finally bring everyone together in a way which was safe, collaborative, and thoroughly enjoyable. For me personally, it was a privilege to be able to reconnect with so many of the incredible professionals who helped make Kubrick what it is today and hear about their journeys since leaving us, whether progressing their career with our clients or exploring new avenues.”
Many thanks to all those who attended and made the night a success. For all our Alumni members - keep an eye out for the invitation to the next social coming soon!
