CEO Message to Dreamr

Every year I write a message to all our Dreamrs to talk about the great things that have happened throughout the year. 2016 is no different; it’s just taking me longer and longer each year. This year we’re joined by some amazing people, Xav, Seb, Alba, Mailen, Harry, TomL, and Nathan. That’s a lot of new faces for one year and when hiring new Dreamr’s they face a huge challenge with getting a job. Not only do they need to be passionate and open to change, a lot of the time I get a feeling when someone is the right person, and I got that same feeling with our new faces. Sebastian who joins us from an entrepreneur background, but also as a model (apparently) and I’ve seen such a huge commitment from him in the six months here already; his role is pinnacle to Dreamr, and his hard work is shown in the wonderful clients we’ve had recently. Ed has had a tremendous year working throughout multiple ups and downs, while coaching Annie and providing support to the entire company. A rock to the iOS team, his knowledge has proved invaluable and I appreciate this dedication year on year

Why I chose to become an ambassador for National Coding Week

Mylo Kaye, CEO of award-winning Dreamr in Manchester discusses his passion for code and why he chose to become an ambassador for National Coding Week. I’m from a large family in Wirral, Merseyside. When I grew up, I had a very inquisitive nature mind. This curious nature got me into trouble quite a few times but also meant that when my Mum gave me a desktop PC for finishing school, my mind began to explore all the possibilities of computing. First I tried digital design, then PC repair, ultimately I became increasingly excited about coding something on a screen, then watching it come to life, my passion for HTML was born. Ten years later I’m living my dream of having built a design and development agency with my business partner. After meeting at University, we decided to build a team of developers and designers and create websites and apps, now used across the world. Our team of 17 produce thought-provoking work that has been honoured with awards and worldwide recognition. In 2016, we created Dreamr Academy, a programme to enable young people to explore the world of design and development. The Academy gives young college and school students the opportunity

Dreamr and Athletec have been shortlisted for Most Innovative Application of Technology in the Big Chip Awards 2016 for the Corner App. Big Chip, the UK’s longest running digital awards, and the biggest outside the capital, have rigorous judging standards meaning that they are well respected within the industry.

Corner  –  World first digital boxing trainer - Mylo Kaye

Corner is the first complete boxing performance tracker. It comprises a complete Internet of Things (IoT) solution which uses unobtrusive wrist-worn sensors, fitting underneath the boxing gloves. Dreamr’s app design and development team worked closely with clients Athletec through each stage of this innovative and cutting-edge project. Historically, in order to understand the quality of their performance, combat athletes have had no alternative but to rely on expensive video playback, with many cameras required to provide an adequate assessment. The high cost and setup requirements have meant that this technology has been far out-of-reach for the vast majority of gyms and athletes. Coach driven assessment to remember accurately every detail of a session is both unrealistic and ultimately imprecise. The English Institute of Sport reports coaches and athletes only recall 30% of performance correctly. In the sporting world where even tiny incremental nuances in performance can mean the difference between winning and losing, Corner has been designed to revolutionise this process. An onboard microprocessor determines key statistics from every punch thrown by a boxer, whether it be jab or a strong right hook, and delivers the feedback via Bluetooth to a smartphone app for both display and storage over time.

Four day week and why you should adopt it

Four day week, is it productive? Four day week, what is it? When I started out in business a few years ago, I wanted teams of people working as much as possible to get more done. Unfourtnetly you can only get so much out of one person, never mind my 13 staff. Henry Ford first proposed the idea of a 8 hour day back in the 1900’s, his staff typically worked around 14 hours a day. He found, however that by working fewer hours, his staff were more focused and more productive. In 1926, Ford Motor company became one of the first businesses in the world to adopt a five-day, 40 hour week. Today, it’s the norm. An article in the New York Times times by CEO James Fried reported that his were more productive, healthier and motivated by working four days a week. With less time to work, there was less time to waste. They were more focused and determined at getting the job done. At Dreamr, my staff have extra long lunches, attend local events and on a Wednesday, they have dedicated time to learn new skills. They even use it to brush up on old ones or

We’re there again this year and I would encourage all students who are attending to come say hi to our new display, to know what it is you have to come see us. Dreamr Eventbrite link.
