It’s hard to believe I have delivered 41 IT Manager Institutes since starting the program in 2003. The agenda has grown and the content has improved over the years and we have taken the program to many locations around the world including:
- Nashville, Tennessee (20)
- Anchorage, Alaska
- Boulder, Colorado
- Atlanta, Georgia (2)
- Regina, Saskatchewan CANADA
- Orangestad, ARUBA (2)
- Willemstad, CURACAO
- Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA (4)
- Abuja, NIGERIA
- Lagos, NIGERIA
- Dubai, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (3)
- Ljubljana, SLOVENIA (3)
Last week we delivered the 41st program at Graymere Country Club in Columbia, Tennessee where I live. It was our first class in Columbia. The staff at Graymere did an excellent job and made us feel very much at home, , , it was truly a peaceful and enjoyable venue for the class and a location I will consider for future middle Tennessee classes.
I can confirm that a 5-minute drive to class every morning sure does have some upsides and our students liked the hotel and classroom setting. They especially liked the $85.00 per night hotel room rate we were able to get for them, , , and the food at Graymere is always great.
We almost canceled this class due to a few last minute drop-outs caused by late year budget cuts, , , but I decided to hold it due to the travel arrangements made and efforts of two managers.
Joseph Melendez flew up from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Our weather was unusually warm so he didn’t get the fall weather break he was expecting, , , was still a bit cooler than he is used to.
Ariel Phiri traveled all the way from Lusaka, Zambia, , , it’s where Victoria Falls is located. It was his first trip to the US and we tried to make him feel at home. He stayed a couple of extra days so I was able to take him to our Camp Liberty on Saturday and show him what we call “paradise”.
Both managers passed their IT Business Manager Certification exams and received their ITBMC. Congratulations Joseph and Ariel !!!
For upcoming classes, take a look at the IT Manager Institute page on ITLever. Headed back to Dubai in November (will be my 4th Dubai class and one of my favorite locations) and a new venue has already confirmed for Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in early December. We have open seats for both of these great locations if you are interested in attending.
