Every fall, the Stratasan team holds an annual Town Hall, which is a time to reflect on the previous year and begin preparations for the new year. While our Town Hall was held virtually in 2020, this year Stratasan held a combination event: in-person and virtual, so that every team member could attend in the way that felt the most comfortable for them.
This three-day event began with a Leadership Training Kick-Off for Stratasan’s management, followed by a day of company-wide alignment, and a day of departmental alignment. One consistency from the past was that much of the time was spent reflecting on our purpose, niche, and the ongoing evolution of our company story. This trifecta encompasses what makes our company unique. Our success and our capacity to help our customers succeed comes as a result of our ability to embody these principles and, as a team, see them realized in every area of our work.
Our Town Hall this year included a great “Ring of Five” panel—a mentor-group of five that includes Stratasan’s Founder and CEO Jason Moore. It was created to build one another up and be a source of motivation to go to when needed. The symbol of the ring is hard to break, and this group is the same. In addition to Jason, the members include Marcus Whitney, Founding Partner, Jumpstart Health Investors, author/speaker; David Corts, COO, Fresh Technology; LeShane Greenhill, Owner, PROSE/ Founder, SalesCocktail; and Nicholas Holland, GM/VP, Marketing Hub, Hubspot. This panel imparted a wealth of knowledge to our team, as each panelist spoke about how they got to where they are today, and how they helped each other get there.
In addition to the Ring of Five panel was a session with one of our investors, Philip Lewis, Partner, Fulcrum Equity Partners, who answered numerous questions and spoke about why Fulcrum invested in Stratasan and is excited about the future,. We also held a Senior Leadership “Ask Me Anything” panel, which went so well that Stratasan has decided to hold a monthly Senior Leadership “Ask Me Anything” meeting to keep the doors and lines of communication open.
We wrapped up our time together with an exercise on our personal and company core values, led by Daniel Oppong, Founder of The Courage Collective & OhanaHealth, followed by a fun team building activity of Family Feud. Overall, it was a much-welcomed time of team connection and vision-casting for the year to come.
