Stallion hosts technology day
September 2018, News, Conferences & Events, Training & Education
On 27 July, Stallion Security hosted its second annual technology day at the Da Vinci Hotel in Sandton to give its clients insight into some of the latest and greatest products and solutions available in the security market.
“The purpose of the event was to show our clients how technology is advancing, by giving them a first-hand look at not only some of the cutting-edge technologies of today, but importantly also what may be possible in, say, six months from now,” explains Stallion’s managing director Brad Soekoe. “It’s really much more than just showing off what Stallion can do, it’s about opening up people’s thought processes so they can start planning ahead, which is essential given the frantic pace technologies such as artificial intelligence and others are advancing at.”
Soekoe emphasises that the event was geared towards reinforcing the strong partnerships Stallion has with its own suppliers. “It’s important that our clients have confidence that when they come to us, it’s about more than just putting our sign up outside their premises. We have access to best-in-breed solutions and support, and our suppliers are just as important as we are in all this,” he says.
The suppliers who exhibited on the day were ADI Global Distribution, ANV, Gallagher, Instacom, MiRO Distribution, Pentagon in partnership with Elvey, Reditron, Regal Distributors SA, Specialised Battery Systems (SBS), TeleEye, Turnstar Systems and Videofied. “As opposed to a big exhibition where you’re always competing for visitors’ attention, this technology day gave us and our suppliers an opportunity to show off their latest and greatest technology in a setting that allows for more personal and more meaningful conversations,” Soekoe continues.
During the lunch break, a well-received presentation was delivered by Brad Sadler, creator of the website Pros and ExCons (www.prosandexcons.co.za). Having been convicted of fraud in the workplace, he was able to give the audience a unique perspective on the risks involved and spoke about topics like when does a risk become a bribe, and how criminal elements insinuated their way into his life and the price he continues to pay for his mistakes.
Feedback on the event from Stallion’s clients and suppliers alike was overwhelmingly positive, with good, quantifiable leads having been established. Soekoe says the success of the technology day means that it will definitely be repeated and is already being planned for around the same time of the year.
