Happy 5th Anniversary, ActivEngage!

 

Happy Anniversary!

Last Sunday, ActivEngage celebrated its 5th-year anniversary under the cabanas of Wekiva Island in sunny Florida. We count ourselves lucky – 95% of all businesses fail before they turn 5! To commemorate the occasion, ActivEngage pulled out all the stops by providing canoes, paddle boards, sno-kones, face paintings, lots of food, and an open bar! It was an awesome day of sun, food, and friends.

As ActivEngage president Ted Rubin grilled burgers for his employees, I asked him about the secret to 5 years of prosperity. “Keep your workers happy,” he told me. “We invest a lot in our employees and that has been the key to our success.”

Meanwhile, Todd Smith showed us how to paddleboard down the Wekiwa River and congratulated us all on another great year.

 

We cut into a large cake (monogrammed with a picture of Ted and Todd gazing romantically into each other’s eyes) in the afternoon and we went on partying into the night.

The scenery was great and the weather was perfect as we rented canoes and floated down the river.

We brought out face-painting and balloon animals for the little ones – as well as volleyball, horseshoes, and cornholing for the adults!

The aE staff brought their dogs, wives, husbands, sons, daughters, and close friends. It was a great time!

All of us here in Orlando would like to thank the whole ActivEngage family for making this event possible. Our five-year journey as the most trusted brand in live chat could not have happened without the loyalty and support of our partners and clients. We look forward to another 5 years representing our dealer friends! We hope to see you at the next party!
