Phil, DriveWorks Tech Team Manager has finally returned from Australia. He was there for over a month where he managed to squeeze in a lot of visits and get an impressive tan.
Phil visited DriveWorks Reseller, InterCAD, at their offices across Australia. He spent time with the sales teams and business development managers and saw great sights like the DriveWorks flag we tweeted about.
With InterCAD, he got the chance to visit some DriveWorks customers and see first hand how they are using DriveWorks Software to automate their design and sales processes. Throughout the whole of his trip, Phil visited a total of 17 customers. One of the customer’s had previously visited the UK for some training so it was good for Phil to catch up with them.
The Sydney and Melbourne SWUG meetings both had visits from Phil.
At the Melbourne SWUG, Phil presented DriveWorksXpress to the group and showed them what they can do with the software that’s already installed inside SolidWorks. He was then followed by Steve Galienne who explained DriveWorks Solo and what can be done with the free 30 day trial. There were other presenters and lots of raffle prizes on offer there too. DriveWorks provided a PowerBank that Phil presented to the winner.
The Sydney meeting was hosted at the impressive Amada Oceania Centre. Phil presented to the SolidWorks users what they could do with DriveWorks Solo and the free 30 day trial.
Phil took along a PowerBank courtesy of DriveWorks and it was won by Darren Clune who is currently learning how to use SolidWorks at college.
Whilst in Sydney Phil stayed with InterCAD Applications Engineer, Bill Murch who lives in a remote area where Phil saw a wild wallaby. He and Bill then visited The Australian Reptile Park, where Phil was most impressed by the Tasmanian Devils and the saltwater crocodiles.
Phil had plenty of time to visit many more of the tourist attractions in the beautiful country of Australia too. He has returned with some pretty impressive photos that have made us all green with envy at DriveWorks HQ.
Around his time at InterCAD and the SWUG meetings, Phil visited the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and saw a 360° panoramic view over Sydney at the Sky Tower.
In between all of that and lots of travelling, Phil also managed to squeeze in a friend’s wedding AND went scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef.
We’re glad to have Phil back although I’m not sure he’s glad to be back in rainy Thelwall!
