On November 28th, when the US celebrated Thanksgiving this year, our Beijing team gave thanks of their own by holding a client appreciation event at the InterContinental, Sanlitun. This was a chance for ICD to express appreciation to the 70+ clients who joined for their support over the years. In addition, the event was also a platform for clients to network, interact and engage in discussion about hot topics in the security industry and the new technology environment.
Deputy General Manager, North & West China, Louis Liu hosted the event and gave an opening speech with ICD 2019 updates including business growth, colleague development & qualifications, women in security and ICD Greenlight charity initiatives.
Attendees were then invited to work in small groups to discuss key industry topics around two themes:
- the application of cloud, AI technology, and big data in security management
- enterprise security: achieving health & safety goals in the workplace, the benefits of outsourcing security professionals, and how security can be transformed from a cost center to a profit center.
End users from different industries put their heads together and drew on their experience and knowledge to brainstorm, share and learn from others before key takeaways were shared in a panel discussion.
ICD also invited Nick Zhang, Sr. Product Manager from Tyco to share insights about Tyco's latest solutions in an engaging presentation. In addition, attendees had the chance to see a selection of solutions in action at a technology showcase throughout the networking time.
As the evening drew to a close, clients and ICD colleagues alike left having learnt something new, met new friends and celebrated Thanksgiving together!
