â€œPositivity stops the well from running dryâ€?
October 25, 2011 «Title» «First_Name» «Last_Name» «Position» «Company_Name» «Building_Info» «Address_Line» «City» Dear «Title» «Last_Name»: Technology has really been accelerating at a very fast pace. PCs and Microsoft ruled during the PC revolution of the 80s. During the last decade, a new set of technology players have evolved and are changing the way we perceive and use technology. The disruptive technology shift resulted in strong following for social media and networking, the Youtube era, mobile devices and tablets as alternative to PCs, and many more. Today, we hear the emergence of cloud computing and web 2.0 technologies and is continuously allowing the business enterprise to be innovative and responsive to the demands of the new consumer. The irony of education in our society is that students are trained in technology that will be obsolete by the time they enter the workforce. Continuous education and training, therefore, becomes important for enterprises to avail of these technologies to work for the business. There should be no letup in updating skills especially with the new digital and online tools used in sharing and collaboration. In line with this, I would like to offer you our training programs which intend to make your workforce more productive and attuned to the new technologies in the market. See the list of topics included in the training.
