ETL Systems' Engineers Forge Bonds and Battle Bots at Inaugural Engineering Conference

Last week marked a momentous occasion for ETL Systems as engineers from Hereford and Rickmansworth gathered for the company's first-ever ETL Engineering Conference (EEC). The EEC provided a unique opportunity for the entire team to come together, step outside their familiar work environments, and engage in various activities designed to enhance their knowledge and strengthen their bonds as a team.

Conference Highlights:

The conference agenda included engaging peer-to-peer presentations, providing a platform for knowledge exchange and collaborative learning. The engineers were treated to an after-dinner talk by Martin Coleman, executive of Satellite Innovation Group, offering valuable industry insights and perspectives. Additionally, the team had the chance to partake in team-building activities that added a layer of excitement to the conference.

Robot Wars Extravaganza:

A standout feature of the EEC was the inclusion of a Robot Wars tournament, an experience made possible through collaboration with Team Tactics. The engineers, many of whom have been inspired by the iconic TV series, battled it out with famous robots such as Matilda and Sir Killalot in a specially designed arena. This thrilling team-building exercise not only brought out the competitive spirit among the engineers but also created lasting memories and strengthened the camaraderie within the team.

Electronics team leader, Seth Allen said "Robot Wars has inspired a generation of engineers, and with that, much of our team were delighted to have the opportunity to put their expertise to the test in an exciting tournament." Read the full article with SatCom.Digital.
