Gamification

by Sonny Cutting

Gamification is a rapidly growing method of adding value to a business and its services. It’s functional, fresh and fun. However it’s not – as some people believe – simply adding games to business, it’s much more than that. It is, in fact, the process of using game-style mechanics to improve and enhance a current business experience. By applying game mechanics to ‘nongame’ company processes, you are adding a whole extra layer to your business and making it stand out from the competition. This is precisely what we’ve done at Net XP.

As heroic as Batman and Robin, as iconic as Han Solo and Chewbacca, and as natural as milk and cookies, the partnership between First Friday Networking and Network Xpress is something special.

The duo is leading the business world to the golf themed event at the 7th September Mid Sussex Expo in Burgess Hill. With 60 marvellous exhibitors, varying from radio to recruitment, hotels to consultants, the range is phenomenal and makes for a day of meeting excellent contacts who you might not normally cross paths with. The expo will be kicked off by our exclusive keynote speaker, Penina Shepherd, for exhibitors and our early bird guests (those arriving before 9.15am on the day), and will be hosting three other wonderful speakers to inspire and encourage; Natalie Montagnani, Amanda Geel, and Neil Tomlinson. Adding to this already mind-blowing line-up, Net XP have also set up the opportunity to win prizes throughout the day and a crazy golf tournament around the expo to keep you entertained and to break the ice with other visitors and exhibitors alike. This expo is certainly one to put in the diary.
