Qualtrics Experience

My Qualtrics Experience – Ian McVey – Enterprise Team Lead – London

What did you choose as your Qualtrics Experience?

I wanted to get engaged with FivefortheFight - mainly in memory of our friend, Dermot Costello, but also for other loved ones who have/are/will suffer from the horrid disease that is Cancer. So we decided to get Team North EMEA together and do a challenge. 5 months later we were all trekking the Three Peaks Challenge — an audacious attempt to scale the 3 highest peaks in the UK in under 24 hours (including travel time between them!). 5 months and 24 hours (ish) later we had achieved the challenge, created incredible memories, and raised a solid amount for FivefortheFight

One of our objectives at Qualtrics is to encourage employees to Learn, Lead, and Live. What did you learn through this experience?

I learnt many things through this experience. How great our team are, tenacity in the face of adversity, undertaking the challenge with great humour and resilience - a growth mindset in action! How the human spirit of generosity and joy is the bedrock to a rich and meaningful life. And how the memory of a man, Dermot, who lived by these values, inspires a legacy through the motivation of others fortunate enough to have known him.

Ian McVey is Head of Enterprise Sales for Northern Europe based out of Qualtrics' London, United Kingdom office. He holds a Masters of Mechanical Engineering from Oxford University and a Masters in Business Administration from the London School of Economics.
