As head of our new, exciting Global Maintenance Team (GMT) team, I was excited to be invited to participate in a Lead Workshop, which took place during the Amazee10 celebrations in Cape Town in April 2017.

We recently welcomed our newest developer, Maita Kambarami, who is working from our Cape Town office.
On Monday, 10 April, a handful of Amazee's distributed project and team leads met for an all-day workshop. Our Amazee Group Chairman, Greg Gerhardt, led the discussion as the team talked through challenges of Agency life.
During the first couple of weeks of April all the Amazees from all our locations were invited to not only celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Amazee Group, but also to use the opportunity to work and collaborate together.
As the Group CEOs, we couldn't let this golden moment pass us by and we got together to share our thoughts, hopes and strategic goals for the various Amazee companies.
It felt like an extended April Fool’s joke, as all of our colleagues, some of whom we have only met online, were suddenly appearing in the Cape Town office.
Every possible space that a bottom could be placed was taken, with an American accent here, a German accent there, and everything between, from Slovenian, to Austrian, Spanish, French, Dutch and Romanian. Not to mention our usual blend of South African accents. It was the start to a happy time of chaos!
We find it worthwhile, as others do I'm sure, to take stock in the company now and again. For as long as I've been with Amazee Labs we've routinely analyzed the state of business and used our findings to improve moving forward.
I recently returned from a whirlwind adventure in Zurich with the Amazee Labs Zurich Team. Here's what we got up to in my time there.
