It's a very important market for us and it's a great opportunity to network with some very senior individuals in one place and maximise our time use. There are several conversations which have extended and will continue this evening, including a visit to some of the customers’ sites after the event.
Sales Manager, IACS
The structure and organization of the event has been very good. It's quite different to number of other events that I've been to. It's more participative and I enjoy that. There will be meetings following the event following the contacts we have made here and I think that's partly because we are meeting people in a different environment where you can get to know them outside the office.
Client Director, Agilisys
It's a sensible way for us to do business. It's very difficult for an SME like us to get into the procurement frameworks for very large public sector organisations. We tend to be strongest when we can talk to folks one-on-one, even on an informal basis, so this forum has been excellent for us.
Managing Director, Tibus
Rather than spend our marketing budget standing in a hall and waiting for a client to come to us, at least prior to this event we have been able to vet who we would like to speak to - who we think could be a potential match for us. That has been excellent.
Business Developer, Tibus
The level of seniority is excellent, they are high-grade delegates that we have here. They are decision makers, they are budget holders; they are the right sort of people that we tend to engage with in our business development activities.
Principal Consultant, Informed
I just wanted to say thank you, our people found the event and all aspects of the forum very useful and enjoyable. The quality of delegates was excellent, which is frequently a disappointment with other events. We caught up with some established well known contacts; reacquainted ourselves with others and were also introduced to new contacts that we have subsequently followed up. We are having good, meaningful dialogue with a number of these. Also, you have an excellent team, they were knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant and the event ran smoothly and like clockwork!
Chief Executive Officer, Informed Solutions
Attentive and organised
Director of Commercial Proposition Development, Cable & Wireless
We find these events are very well organised, providing an excellent forum for us to meet and communicate with key individuals from across the sector. The format and structure of the events provide plenty of opportunities for interaction and discussion.
Marketing communications manager, Management Consultants, Atkins
What we have in real terms is 45 meetings in two days at the Strategy Forum- you simply can’t buy that anywhere else! Well done in pulling it together. Thank you so much for all your hard work. A great event is when you see very little of the organisational team, Ahmedia were like swans on water.
Sales & Marketing Director, Northgate Public Services
The structure of the forum for us has been phenomenal. It has enabled us to interact and communicate with a number of contacts over a short period of time that we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do so even over a period of several months. OpenText will almost certainly be doing another event with Ahmedia.
Director of Central Government, OpenText
The structure of the forum is intense which is a good thing as it keeps the pace moving in terms of there being no down time and ensures that you are kept on your toes! Good quality of speakers.
UK Public Sector Director, SCC
This forum has confirmed and underlined the value that we saw in this format of event, allowing us to hear highly informed and valuable presentations from key people. It is excellent to hear directly from senior directors within Central Government departments the challenges they are facing.
Public Sector Sales Director, OpenText
Thank you for an excellently run event. Your attention to detail made it very interesting and hopefully a worthwhile event for us - a really professionally run event.
Chief Executive, Cora Systems
