Last week I had the opportunity to speak at a local chapter of BNI International.
The talk I gave was regarding how the staff at ICOM Tech Services assisted the Saratoga City Center preparing for their move to additional facilities while the City Center was being relocated. We created a VPN for the City Center setup a new phone system and coordinated with their phone line supplier and Time Warner for the additional cable requirements. The City Center staff was going to be working from two locations for about a year.
What I found very impressive was how organized and well run the BNI meeting was. I had heard a lot about BNI for years, but never attended any of their meetings. Everyone was held to the time allotted for them to speak and the entire group was cordial and seemed very cohesive.
It was a very positive experience.
