GLEN ELLYN, IL. August, 2015 –This year four students from Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city and business center, visited Magenium Solutions as part of the E2 Educational Services program. This is the second year Magenium has been selected. Tim Traxinger, Managing Director, hosted the visit.
Throughout the academic year, professionals and educators in the U.S. visit Almaty to give intensive week-long seminars focusing on leadership and practical business skills needed to compete in today’s global marketplace. In return, the very best E2 students are selected to visit Seattle and Chicago during the summer to meet with business leaders and see firsthand how companies are run. This is an incredibly valuable experience for students still living in the legacy of a broken soviet system. They get to see the concepts and ideas they learned in theory actually at work. Tim demonstrated the features of Magenium's award winning "office of the future." The students were especially impressed with the Skype for Business video conferencing systems installed by Magenium's EHome C.H.A.O.S. (Connected Home and Office) division and the way Magenium employees collaborate using such powerful tools as Microsoft SharePoint. Most importantly, Tim's examples showed there is a way to be more successful by holding to personal beliefs and values -- a truly revolutionary realization.
Perhaps the best way to understand the impact the experience has on the students is the following quote from Zhulduz Sanbayeva, one of the students this year. We’ve quoted it word for word to preserve the heartfelt emotions.
"I came in and fell in love with Magenium! Friendly staff, amazing design and generousity of Tim Traxinger made our first impressions unforgettable. Thanks to Tim, we understood how Magenium became far away in technology-advancement. Trust and quality are the main two that come to my mind while thinking about this company. The knowledge we gained is another story. Identifing [sic] type of your personality, its pros and cons along with other interesting games were very valuable in finding ourselves. By the way, I started loving purple more! … Thank you for giving the chance to express feedback because I like this place and would love to work in Magenium.”
