On June 25th, the ICT Developer Day 2019 took place. More than 100 colleagues were welcomed at Papendal. Because of the ICT Group’s strategy, this year’s theme was ‘Develop the Future’. The weather was fantastic and all colleagues were happy to meet each other. It promised to be a good day.
The ICT Developer Day is an annual event in which colleagues from the ICT Group share knowledge about innovative technical developments. Moreover, it is a great opportunity to meet colleagues in a sporting environment.
All colleagues were welcomed by Roy Jansen. He emphasized the importance of challenging each other and staying ahead of the game. Afterwards, the Fountainheads gave an amazing keynote. They are world famous in the Netherlands for the hilarious and energetic way in which they discuss trends and innovations. After the inspiring keynote, it was time for the break-out sessions. These sessions were hosted by colleagues from across all units and entities from the ICT Group. In these break-out sessions, colleagues discuss the technical developments in their discipline, hoping to inspire their fellow colleagues.
Another famous part of the ICT Developer Day are the sport activities. The attendees could sign up for one of the following activities: kick boxing, aikido, sheep herding and sit volleyball. All activities were spread across the terrain of Papendal. In order to get to know each other, all colleagues had to work together in small groups. After the sports, it was time for a well-deserved drink and meal. For the hungry colleagues there was a barbecue! In the evening sun we all enjoyed our meal and a good chat.
