After an exciting beginning to the 2019 calendar year, we wanted to share some key events. At the turn of the calendar year, we made excellent strides in continuing to expand our client base, with many notable brands signing up for our Voice-of-Government® BDI solution and joining our AlphaBrook community.
A few months into the year, the AlphaBrook family enjoyed peanuts and cracker jacks during our annual trip to Nationals Park for their opening day game. It is a wonderful tradition that connects us to our DC Metro area community and allows for team members to get to know each other outside of the office. We take pride in creating an environment in which our team not only enjoys what they do but also the people that they work with, as this translates into great group cohesion and top-notch research for our clients.
In April, we did an initial examination of our Q1 numbers, which showed that AlphaBrook is stronger than ever and continuing to set new revenue records. We surpassed BDI solution sign ups from Q1 in 2018. As we continue to build our brand within industry as the leader in qualitative, Voice-of-Government® BD Intelligence, this growth is a positive sign of market demand for knowing what the government’s needs and plans are for your most important bid pursuits.
In May, we were delighted and honored to have Jeff Eggers, retired Navy Seal and current Executive Director of McChrystal Group Leadership Institute, challenge us on innovative leadership as part of our Speaker Series. Our team learned many valuable leadership lessons that will help us continue to shape and grow AlphaBrook and cultivate excellent leaders within our organization. Our Speaker Series provides AlphaBrook employees and guests the opportunity to learn from notable individuals who are accomplished in the areas of leadership, teamwork, innovation, collaboration, and more.
To support the additional workload resulting from our new clients signups, a few new faces have joined our team this Spring! We have been fortunate enough to acquire some outstanding talent and are eager to see them excel with AlphaBrook.
We appreciate everyone who has contributed to our wonderful start to 2019! We are energized going into the latter part of the year knowing we have a strong internal team, as well as encouraging and enthusiastic clients. This solid foundation allows us to focus on continued innovation into the future, and to maintain our position as the leader in Voice-of-Government®, qualitative BD intelligence.
