Get Ready for the ControlUp Ultimate Summer!

Ahh… can you feel that? That’s the sweet smell of summer. It’s time to get back out into the world and live your best digital experience life. It’s time to take “work from home” and make it “work from anywhere.” The beach! Your friend’s backyard! A coffee shop… with other people (OMG)! A plane! Anywhere that’s not your house!

It’s time for the ControlUp Ultimate Summer.

“Hey, Melissa,” you might ask, “what is the ControlUp Ultimate Summer all about? PLEASE TELL US!”

I’d be happy to.

At ControlUp, we are all about helping you deliver the best possible digital employee experience. We’re here to help you optimize, analyze, and observize (no, it’s not really a word, but I needed to rhyme; I’m at peace with it) and help you live your best tech life.

But for the ControlUp Ultimate Summer, we’re really making things sizzle, with great giveaways!


That’s right, we’ve got limited edition ControlUp trucker hats. They’re perfect for keeping you in style and keeping the hot summer sun off your face (after all that time inside over the past year, we all need to be extra careful about the sun). All summer long, when you join us for an event—a webinar, an event we’re sponsoring, or anyplace else we happen to be—just mention the hat and we’ll hook you up with one. Yep! It’s just that easy.

MEAT (or veggies, if that’s how you roll).

What goes better with ControplUp Ultimate than the ULTIMATE grill? Join us for  a ControlUp event (or an event that we’re sponsoring) and you’ll be entered to win a Traeger grill. Let me say that again: A TRAEGER GRILL. And not just a Traeger Grill, but a Traeger PRO Series 34 pellet grill. This is the end-all, beat-all of grilling existence and the choice of summertime chefs and pros alike. Once a month in June, July, and August, we’re giving one of these backyard bad boys to one lucky winner (and you can sport your new hat while you’re flipping the best burgers this side of the EUC stack). All you have to do to be entered is show up.

CHILL. Because that’s what summer is all about.

While you’re grilling, why not be chilling, too? With that in mind, we’re giving away YETI Tundra 35 hardside coolers—one in July and one in August—so you can keep your drinks cold in style. To win one, register and attend our summer webinar series OR post a pic of yourself wearing your ControlUp ball cap and tag us on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook, using the hashtag #controlupsummersizzle. Yep! It’s just that easy.

EATS (because YUM).

What do brisket, wood-fired pizza, Huli-Huli chicken, Bang-Bang corn, and Atlantic beach pie all have in common? They’re all summer recipes that are coming your way in the first-ever ControlUp Ultimate Summer cookbook! We’ve collected recipe favorites from our employees around the world, and we want your submissions, too. If you have a summer recipe that people can’t wait to sink their teeth into, send it our way! At the end of the summer, we’ll collect all the submissions from Team ControlUp and our customers recipes from the ControlUp Team and Customer submissions for the ControlUp Ultimate Summer e-cookbook. You can share recipes with us on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook. Or? Just send us an email.

Follow us on social media to stay up to date on where we’ll be, so you won’t miss any of the action.
