At the start of April Chemtek hosted its first annual Corporate Summit at Croasdaile Country Club in Durham. It was a chance for Chemtek employees from our multiple locations – Morrisville, Yanceyville, and San Antonio – to get together for a day of learning, goal setting, and fellowship. The day began with activities helping everyone get to know each other a bit better.
Next we had two workshop sessions, the first led by Kat Murray about the necessity of failure in order to innovate, and the second led by David Rigsbee highlighting our company goal for this fiscal year – 5X Growth! We took time to reflect on how each one of us can contribute to this ambitous goal. Each team member makes a difference – whether it’s increasing sales close rates, improving production efficiency, or finding new market strategies.
In the afternoon we were joined by keynote presenter, Chad Porter. A nationally renowned speaker from Wilmington, NC, Chad inspired us all to remember the important things in life – the people we share it with. His story was an excellent reminder to keep persevering even in the toughest moments. He was a wonderful addition to our summit and provided a story and lessons that will stick with us all for many years.
Finally we recognized Chemtek team members who have reached significant milestones with Chemtek. Awards were given out to those who have reached at least 5, 10, and even 25+ years with Chemtek! We celebrated their loyalty and commitment to Chemtek, and at the end of the day we had a great afternoon socializing and relaxing while enjoying the beautiful weather.
Our first annual Chemtek Corporate Summit was a success and we’re already looking forward to the next one!
