Nexus Presents Brilliance – went off with a bang! 

Over 120 people in one room for stories of inspiration, educational workshops, plentiful networking and brilliant celebrations! 

Exeter-based IT support provider, Nexus, hosted their biggest event to date: Nexus Presents: Brilliance, in celebration of their 25th year anniversary on Thursday 5th October at The Forge at Winslade Manor.  

A hugely anticipated all-day business conference saw over 120 business professionals, managers and leaders from across the country come together to learn, debate and celebrate.  

Nexus brought together world class tech leaders such as Dell alongside local successes such as The Met Office, Exeter City Council, Launch Online, Stephens Scown, the South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit and many more to discuss technology, culture, cyber security and business growth. It turned out to be a fascinating day of thought leadership, insight and networking.  

Managing Director Stuart Wilson commented: “I’m truly overwhelmed with the turn out we received today. It’s a really special milestone for us here at Nexus and to share this moment with so many fellow businesses, contacts and friends is just incredible. We’re proud to work with world-class clients and suppliers, both locally and internationally. To see them all together in one room, sharing their stories, has been a day we’ll never forget. A huge thank you to everyone who has been involved in this event and everyone who joined us today, it’s marked our 25 years perfectly.” 

The event sponsors included: 

Dell Technologies: Computers and technology solutions 

SonicWall: Next-gen firewalls & cybersecurity solutions 

Gamma: Business communications and connectivity 

Kaseya: Systems for streamlining and automating IT and cyber security 

Anywhere365: Rethink business communications with Anywhere365® 

All sponsors hosted exhibitors’ tables where delegates got the chance to talk directly to their representatives about their products and services and how their solutions could support their businesses.  

Dan Pritchard from Tech South West was there to host a panel debate where delegates also got the chance to share their thoughts on key topics which most excited them for 2024 and those which had them most concerned, including AI, the financial crisis, 5G, recruitment struggles and governmental changes to name a few. Delving into these topics, Dan was joined on stage by Jonathan Murch from the Met Office, Amy Ralston from Stephens Scown, Julius Clayton from Dell Technologies, David Woodfine from the Cyber Security Associates and Nexus Operations Director John Brett, who discussed these topics at length.  

To encapsulate the insight that was shared on the day, Nexus will be publishing a post-event report to all delegates which will outline the key themes of the day, top insights, and advice that was shared.  

If you would like a copy of this report, please email [email protected] with the subject line ‘Brilliance Report’ and a copy will be sent when it becomes available.  

Nexus Charity of the year, Hospiscare, were also there to enjoy the day and were pleasantly surprised to receive an unexpected donation of £500 to support their cause, following surplus funds from the event ticket sales. Ellie Williams and Sarah Smith joined Stuart Wilson up on stage to receive their very welcomed donation as Stuart confirmed that Hospiscare would continue to be Nexus’s charity of the year for 2024.  

Following the day of learnings and insights, Nexus then hosted an after party at The Terrace in Exeter where the celebrations and conversations continued into the early hours.  

An existing success, ‘Nexus Presents’ is a series of non-salesy seminars with the emphasis on knowledge-sharing and networking. The regular events, although smaller than their 25th edition, will continue, with their next planned for January 2024.
