Views from a cultural mecca

Inspired from Everywhere.

Even though many of us at Culture Pilot don't originally hail from Houston, Texas, we landed here... and it turns out we're in good company.

Our city is home to one of the most culturally diverse populations in America, comprised of creative thinkers and doers, culinary masterminds, scientists, engineers, and medical laureates, wrapped up in a community of arts & culture, with a theater district ranked second in the nation.

At the intersection of world-renowned space exploration, medical research, and the energy capital of the world, it's no surprise you'll find most of us still call Houston our home, threading culture from the cultural mecca otherwise known as hustle-town. We love it so much we made a billboard.

Our Move To The Cloud: Those that know Culture Pilot well know we aim ahead of the curve. With the increase in off-site event work and travelling from 2009–2013, we began developing tighter systems while on-the-go.

After 11 years behind walls, we broke free from our beloved brick and mortar office in 2014 and began operating in the cloud full-time. We'd even written a few articles on the subject. We’re not just walking the post-Covid walk, we’re continuing to prove the leadership model works, and it works extremely well.

In 2013, Jason Fried wrote in his acclaimed book, REMOTE: “Remote work is here, and it’s here to stay. The only question is whether you’ll be part of the early adopters, the early majority, the late majority or the laggards. The ship carrying the innovators has already sailed, but there are still plenty of vessels for the early adopters.” Now, in a post-Covid world, it's hard to imagine where we'd be otherwise.

Communications is what we do. And it’s also our fuel for business. For us, operating in the cloud means having the systems and tools in place to work as hard as possible, with the most talented team possible, from everywhere possible. It means spending more investment on our work and less on non-conducive interruptions and expense. It means efficiency. It means productivity. It means extremely clear communications.

We’re here to Captivate Brands and Elevate Potential. Here. There. And everywhere. Welcome aboard.
