Happy New Year! With some time off during the holidays, our team members had a chance to dive into the all new “RedCloud Recipes” cookbook, released just before the holiday season in an effort to bring our team together through shared experiences in the kitchen.
Happy holidays from our team at RedCloud Consulting! For reasons big and small, 2020 has thrown everything it has at all of us, and we’re fortunate and grateful to see a bright future ahead thanks to our resolute team and our dedicated clients. But we know that 2020 has severely impacted many in our local communities…
To that end, starting this holiday season and continuing through 2021, on behalf of our clients RedCloud is adopting Solid Ground's Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing - a safe haven at a secure location for mothers and kids experiencing homelessness.
As we near the end of 2020 (a chapter we’re all ready to move on from!), we continue to build the depth and breadth of our team. Despite the rocky roads and curveballs we all were thrown, Team RedCloud has proudly charged onward with positive attitudes and continued white glove support to our clients - constants in our approach to business and partnership! While the year brought challenges to the plate, we feel lucky to have the best team to work through it all with. 2021, here we come!
Are you interested in joining Team RedCloud? We’d love to hear from you! Reach out to us if you’re interested in a role at RedCloud.
The holidays are fast approaching and year-end client projects are getting ready for that final push. This time of year also gets us excited about another annual tradition in our work with the young people of our communities. As part of our ongoing work to empower local kids with access to education and technology, we partner with Toys for Kids - an outstanding local organization who helps children of all socioeconomic backgrounds be better prepared for school and life.
We recently welcomed Matt Little, a Senior Associate focusing on our new Business Solutions and Intelligence team. He’s supporting PowerApps & Power Automate implementation for RedCloud’s clients, as well as developing internal apps, business solutions and processes for the BS&I Practice.
Matt has 10+ years of management consulting experience, and was a Digital Transformation delivery lead for teams of all sizes and a manager of a practice in his past experience. For the past 3 years, Matt has been expanding expertise in and advocating for the adoption of solutions which use Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and the Microsoft Power Platform. In his personal life, he enjoys spending time with his 15-year-old German Shepherd, playing hockey or golf, and entering into the World Series of Poker every summer. Read on to hear about his favorite quarantine activity!
As the world continues to shift in a variety of ways, we stay focused on what RedCloud can do in support of the collective, long-term success of our clients, team, and our community as a whole. This includes adding to our team as our offerings and services evolve. With our exciting news of launching the Business Solutions and Intelligence Practice and earning another spot on the annual Puget Sound Business Journal’s Fastest Growing list, we believe the best is still to come for us! As we adapt to the ongoing dynamics of the pandemic, we look to different ways to make everything happen for our clients and are confident that our new team members will be essential in getting us there.
Do you see yourself on our team? We’d love to meet you! Reach out to us if you’re interested in a role at RedCloud.
Recently our RedCloud team had another opportunity to come together to share best practices, new methodologies, and discuss new opportunities under the umbrella of our newest practice area, Business Solutions and Intelligence. As always, we thoroughly enjoy when our team can connect despite our busy schedules and remote work, bringing ideas to light, sharing in a few laughs, and building team chemistry.
Between online meetings, calls and a steadily flowing inbox each day, it’s easy to zone into the laptop life without taking those much needed breaks to stand up and move. Admittedly, we’re all feeling a little tight in our muscles with our now ‘normal’ work-from-home setups. The kitchen table, or a desk that is a little too low with mismatched chairs, laptops that force our necks at odd angles… we’re using what we have, adapting around our partners, roommates, or kids also working at home. With a remote work set-up down pat at this point, we thought it was time to shake things up a bit all in the name of fun, team connection, and healthy living.
Consultant. A widely used job description with a diverse range of meanings in a rapidly growing industry. More and more companies are seeking to employ the expertise of consultants to bring efficiencies to their projects without the cost associated with new full time employees. This growth of course means an ever-widening landscape of opportunities for professionals who have a bank of skills in their back pockets, even if they’ve never considered moving into a consulting role.
Meet Kim, RedCloud Senior Consultant. With nearly a decade of Microsoft experience and a background in racing, Kim brings a competitive edge to his role at RedCloud. He's goal oriented and strong in analyzing risk vs. reward. We had the chance to (virtually) sit down with him to hear more about his role and his racing career.
