22 Nov Brave wins Best Exhibitor Award at Australian Utility Week 2018.
Breaking the mould and challenging the norm.
When asked ‘what does being Brave mean?’ we all answer it a little bit differently here at Brave Energy Systems… and that’s the point isn’t it? After 15 years of growing our brand and developing solutions for our customers that make a difference to their business, we have all experienced challenges that we have needed to overcome. One thing we all say, though, is that we are not afraid of pushing the limit, stepping outside of the box and using new technology and a new way of thinking to advance an industry that often feels held back from being able to spread their wings…
Home of the Brave.
We were back this year as Gold Sponsors at Australian Utility Week held on Nov 21-22 at Melbourne Convention and Entertainment Centre.
We kept the house frame and the nod to renewable energy from 2017’s display, but it was important to us that we didn’t ‘just do the same thing’ as last year… even though it was pretty great last year too! We wanted to challenge ourselves, so we asked ‘what can we do differently and what can we do better?’.
The answers were centred around our brand and our solutions. We know that a differentiator of ours is that we are local and have real people, who genuinely care about Australian utilities and enabling them to succeed. We wanted everyone at AUW18 to see in our people, what we see in them everyday – passion and dedication. So we brought a bigger team, with more diverse skillsets, who were able to have meaningful conversations with visitors, no matter the topic. We wanted to make our stand a home for one and a home for all.
That means having a bit of fun too! So we introduced ‘the games room’ where visitors were competing for top prizes and we promised we wouldn’t take ourselves too seriously.
Brave coffee was a hit and we hear it may have even helped us get the win… we are only now at the start of day 2 and we have already made over 500 coffees for our caffeine fiends here at the Show.
We also added in a bit of ‘background buzz’ in the form of fun promo videos that walk you through our company, and some of our solutions. We are thankful that nobody has complained yet about these videos being on loop… hopefully this is a sign that they are pretty great too!
Thanks for dropping by our house.
To the 1000+ visitors we have already seen at AUW18, thanks for dropping by. The conversations have been valuable and we have really enjoyed meeting new people, as well as talking to those who we have known for many years. We look forward to continuing the discussions in more detail outside of the Show.
To the other exhibitors at AUW18, we acknowledged on Day 1 that everyone has really stepped it up this year. Secure Meters – we thought you were going to pip us at the post… what a great stand you had this year. Newcomers, MessageMedia, was another standout we can;t help but acknowledge.
From all of us at Brave, thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to bringing you more innovation and fun at AUW19!
