Have some fun

webinarI hope you are having fun as you work through your career.

Another year is about to end and a new one will begin, , , it’s a great time to have some fun with your IT team.

Schedule an Annual IT Kickoff Meeting for January and use it to provide value and motivate the team. These meetings are some of the best motivational tools I’ve used in my 20+ year career as an IT manager and CIO.

They are also a lot of fun and memorable when you do them well.

Don’t know how to go about it?

It’s simple – attend my 45-minute webinar titled Motivate Staff With an Annual IT Kickoff Meeting on Saturday, December 27th, 2015. Two times available – 9:00am and 6:00pm.

I’ll give you step by step instructions on how to make this meeting valuable, fun and memorable, , , a great way to boost morale and create teamwork.
