While the east coast prepared themselves last week for the descent of Winter Storm Jonas, Boardroom Events’ home office staff in South Florida wrestled with an internet outage that lasted for more than five hours.

News this week of VMware eliminating more than 800 positions amid declining earnings estimates in preparation for a merger with Dell is indicative of a rough start across the board for the global economy in 2016.

As a small business, we understand the challenges of technology and business executives committed to keeping systems up and running and realizing impactful bottom line growth.

Maintaining an active network of knowledgeable, insightful, innovative leaders helps us grow through the challenges, or what we like to call Opportunities.

This week, our team is hosting gatherings of technology and marketing executives in Raleigh and Tampa. The Boardroom Exchange [BE]x Roadshow Tour is coming to a city near you in the coming months with the goal of growing our community’s professional network and building our partners’ sales pipelines in a meaningful way.

Our goal in 2016 is to engage at an even higher frequency. As we close out the first month of the new year, I encourage you to touch base, discuss market trends, the global economy or even sailing…

Peace,

Charles
