The Openbrolly Journey

Openbrolly‘s inception traces back two decades ago when Geoff Wilcock and David Sim departed local government to establish our digital innovation powerhouse. Their visionary leadership, coupled with a passion for transforming business processes, laid the groundwork for Openbrolly‘s journey. With Lindsay Ebner joining as mentor and chairman, our mission to spread innovation far and wide gained momentum.

Our journey gained momentum as we pioneered solutions like MovieSite, revolutionizing collaboration among councils and establishing groundbreaking Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. Conrad Mackay’s wizardry in coding propelled MovieSite‘s growth, marking a significant milestone in our evolution. Through custom software development, we ventured into healthcare with Openbrolly Health, garnering acclaim with three national awards for collaborative innovation.

In 2017, Sam Hill assumed the mantle of project manager, steering projects like My Cancer Portal to new heights and expanding MovieSite‘s capabilities. Fast forward to 2020, Sam’s promotion to operations director heralded a period of growth, with Claire Banks joining as marketing and sales assistant. Under Jocelyn Mandryck’s consultation, a transformative rebranding initiative unfolded, accompanied by enhancements to our crew module and the imminent launch of the Openbrolly community website.

But our journey didn’t end there.

In 2023, we sadly lost our esteemed colleague, Geoff Wilcock. He passed away peacefully on Saturday the 18th of November. Geoff was an integral part of our team, the founder of Openbrolly and a true friend to many. He will always be in our hearts and never forgotten as his legacy through Openbrolly continues to thrive. As we navigated through the difficult transition Sam and Conrad took the rains. Sam as CEO and Conrad as Techincal Director. In addition, we now have Kaitlyn Hogg our sales and Marketing assistant and Leigha Day-Clark our Tech apprentice. And, big plans are under way…. which you’ll have to check out our news page for more information.

MovieSite is now undergoing an overhaul to incorporate exciting features, while our latest offering, EventsMakr, aids clients in navigating post-Covid event planning challenges. As always, EventsMakr reflects our commitment to providing solutions that seamlessly integrate with our clients’ organizational workflows.

At Openbrolly, we’re not just service providers; we’re partners in your journey, collaborating to bring your visions to life. With stability, control, and reassurance under our umbrella, we empower you to navigate the digital landscape with confidence. Join us as we continue to innovate and shape the future of digital solutions together.
