Also in Feb, our Client Services team attended Episerver’s Partners Day, which focussed on the theme of maximising potential and featured a jam-packed schedule of speakers. The team had front row seats to hear all about Episerver’s exciting plans for this year, including the recent acquisition of Idio – a content personalisation and analytics platform. They couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get a photo with special guest speaker, former British Special Forces Soldier and Guinness World Record Holder, Dean Stott.
