Learning Technologies 2020

The GuyKat team is excited to be attending Europe’s leading workplace learning event - the Learning Technologies 2020. The event is focused on organisational learning and technology that supports and enhances learning at work.

The event takes place in ExCel London, 12-13 February 2020. You can find GuyKat stand just on the left-hand side of the main entrance of the exhibition hall.

With 8,500 attendees, over 200 exhibitors and 200+ free seminars, the exhibition hall will be packed with information about emerging technology that will set trends for the upcoming year.

Every year there is a different buzzword. This year you will hear a lot about VR, AR, but four years ago it was all about bitesize learning and microlearning. Our CEO, Guy McEvoy will look at the key takeaways from the Microlearning topic that are essential to this day and are shaping our industry’s most innovative work. He will explore bitesize examples, including quizzing and interactive PDFs.

Join Guy McEvoy's free seminar at Theatre 2, February 13th, from 1:10 pm.

GuyKat Acquires MTE Services

GuyKat Acquires MTE Services

GuyKat, the Birmingham (UK) eLearning agency, has completed the purchase of Florida based MTE Professional Services. The companies operations will be merged effective January 1st 2020.  

GuyKat is planning to aggressively scale-up in the US. This purchase accelerates the expansion of its new office in Tampa, FL. The initial focus of the US business will be enhancing GuyKat’s offering of world-class consulting support to users of Docebo LMS. It is also anticipated that the US will be a growth market for the company’s award-winning custom eLearning development.

Jamie Morgan, founder of MTE Services, will lead GuyKat’s Professional Services team in North America. Jamie says: ‘The only change existing clients will notice at first is that we now have the support of a much bigger international team, with wider expertise. The extra capacity means that we can now bring on many more clients, and offer a greater range of services. For me personally, it’s going to be great to work with a team who have the same vision and values.’’

Guy McEvoy, CEO, says: We’ve seen tremendous growth in revenue from the US and expanding our physical presence there was our top priority. This concludes a year of talks. I’m certain that the business is a fantastic fit with ours. We’re delighted to welcome Jamie and his team into the GuyKat family.’

10 Year Anniversary

It's been 10 years since GuyKat has been incorporated! 

We wouldn't be GuyKat if we missed a chance to celebrate and share this news with you!

Take a look at our 10 Years Story...


GuyKat Opens New HQ - Back to Where it Began

GuyKat have opened their new HQ in Birmingham. The move is expected to lead to the creation of up to 30 jobs.

CEO, Guy McEvoy, explained; "When we started 10 years ago, our first official home was a business incubator called E4F.  There were about 20-25 different businesses, mainly start-ups, sharing the same space.  Now, ten years later, after a few upward moves, we are back in the exact same unit.  Only this time the entire space is ours. Going full-circle has been a wonderful journey!"

The company has vacated it's two existing premises to complete the move into the new Faraday Wharf base just weeks after opening its first US office in Tampa, Florida.  The state-of-the-art Birmingham office will serve as the Global HQ.

McEvoy said; "We see much of our growth coming from North America, and are looking to build on that though our physical presence there. We'll also be taking on more remote workers from all over to help support our growth.  But our 'digital factory' and spiritual home will always remain here in Birmingham. The company has been built on the talent of graduates and apprentices from this region. That recruitment strategy will remain core to all we do."


GuyKat announces the opening of a new office in the US

 

Today, GuyKat announces the opening of its first office and subsidiary in the USA. GuyKat Inc. is based in Tampa, Florida. This marks a key milestone in the company's aggressive expansion into the North American market.

GuyKat COO, Mark Broadbent, said “Our journey has seen us grow from a small eLearning agency based in the Midlands to a professional services company supporting clients all around the world.  The opening of GuyKat Inc. is an early milestone in the next phase of our expansion plans. It allows us to provide a greater level of support to our growing client base across North America.”

GuyKat CEO said: “This is a big move for us. I’m delighted that our clients in the US will now be able to speak to somebody in the same time zone, and that where necessary site visits will be easier. The most important message to our existing clients is that for project delivery, nothing will change. You will still be working with our awesome team based at our Birmingham HQ. The focus of the US office in the short term is on sales, account management and customer success.”

2019 is GuyKat’s 10th anniversary. Since the foundation, the company has worked on hundreds of eLearning projects for clients based across the globe. Building a physical presence in key geographies is seen as the next logical move in the company’s growth.  More key announcements relating to growth are anticipated over the coming weeks.
