Express Data's 300 staff flew up to the Hyatt Regency Coolum on the Sunshine Coast to participate in the distributor's annual sales Kick Off.
The event featured full-day workshops with vendor sponsors, including Cisco, Microsoft, IBM, RSA Security, Symantec and Citrix. There were also awards given to top performing staff.
Express Data also took the opportunity to hand over a $20,000 cheque to the John Maclean Foundation. The funds follow on from a decision to donate $5 of profit from all orders over $5000 taken in October and November. They will support John Maclean's endeavour to become the first wheelchair athlete to compete in the world's toughest endurance race - the Ultraman Hawaii.
Maclean hoped to raise the profile of his charity, which provides needy children with wheelchairs.
