Four workshops for Wellington businesses

We’ve teamed up with the Wellington Employers’ Chamber of Commerce to offer a series of workshops for Wellington businesses. The workshops are being held between July – September and will be a great opportunity for our local Xeros to share their experience of building a global company from Wellington.

Details of the workshops:

Building a global class marketing websiteExploring how Xero’s marketing website has been designed and built to attract one million visitors a month; using search and content marketing practices to bring prospects to the website; optimising the website design to increase conversion of prospects to sales. 

Scaling the business, building a best-in-class product team: The things that worked, and didn’t, as Xero grew and continues to adapt to massive growth.

Cloud for the Enterprise: Issues and opportunities around the numerous Cloud tools that can be used by teams and departments in each business.

Global recruitment and opening offices around the world: Planning and challenges in anticipating headcount, recruiting offshore, on-boarding, and maintaining the company culture, as well as finding flexible and cost-effective accommodation that supports a business’s culture.

Supporting workshops like these isn’t the only thing WECC does – they lobby and advocate on Wellington issues, run training events, offer advisory services, and much more. We think that’s pretty cool and are proud to be working with Raewyn Bleakley (CEO, WECC) and her team.
