Transcends Express – June 2024 Edition

Our clients are winning. Representing our value of “Courage and Competition”, we are thrilled to see the announcement of the 2024 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards with so many winning and finalist positions being held by our friends and clients. At Transcends, we have a gifted delivery team of marketers, writers, multimedia producers and project managers who exemplify the power of voice. Even in a time of #genAI, their work has resonance. The gravitas of a thoughtful voice. A voice so powerful, it wins awards across the globe for its unique and differentiated storytelling. A voice of better together. A voice that helps achieve our moonshot for 1 billion people to feel more connected. A heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and finalists.

Looking ahead, RISE, our annual company conference and retreat, is kicking off this weekend in Whistler, BC. We’re pumped to trade screens for in person connections, fun and epic adventures with the team. This year we will be scaling mountains (with the help of a gondola!), taking part in yoga classes, completing a scavenger hunt, enjoying delicious food, and making the most of the beautiful nature that Whistler has to offer. To live our value of #AlwaysBeLearning, we also have a packed agenda of inspiring workshops and presentations. Stay tuned to our social media to catch real-time updates from the event. RISE is more than just a company conference, it’s a celebration of our company culture and achievements over the last 12 months.

Speaking of achievements, our CEO has been featured in not one, but two podcasts this month. Don’t miss her insightful conversation with Dave Howden on SupaHuman AI here, and scroll down to learn more about her appearance on the Ultimate Guide to Partnering podcast.

Our team is growing and we are looking for a talented Account Manager to join our team. If you, or someone you know, has experience working with or for Microsoft, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Partners, and has a proven track recording of meeting sales targets, we want to meet that person.
