This year’s annual Maytas Conference took place at the East Midlands Radisson Blu on Thursday 14th July with a packed schedule including product developments, breakout sessions and networking opportunities.
The conference theme this year was ‘Optimise your performance’. With so many uncertain changes within the sector, the most effective way to prepare is to make sure current processes and performance are the best they can be. Each of the keynotes and breakout sessions were aimed at getting the most from the software to ensure ‘match-readiness’ for impending changes such as the apprenticeship levy and new standards.

Mike Fisher, Maytas Product Manager, took to the stage to talk about the latest developments in Maytas and e-track, highlighting the new financial planning functionality and the release of destination surveys within e-track. His updates appeared to go down well with our online audience, who were tweeting throughout with the hashtag #maytasconf.
Keynote speakers included Richard Clarke from the Skills Funding Agency who shared the latest in data collection updates, and James Hilton who gave a light-hearted but thought-provoking talk on resilience, stress management and positive psychology. These sessions were recorded and streamed live via Periscope, attracting hundreds of extra viewers to the content.

Lots of delegates visited our video booth throughout the day to give us their feedback on Maytas and what they want the future to bring.
The evening was celebrated with a three course dinner along with a live Tweetwall and entertainment in the form of a Scalextric course and a ‘vote for your favourite music’ Festify playlist. It was great to see so many people enjoying themselves with colleagues – the tweets quickly became filled up with group selfie’s and photobombs!
