8 Tips to a Great Company Meeting

Company meetings are a real pain for some. They last too long, take too much time, waste resources and more. Have you ever been in a meeting and calculated the cost of the meeting? Add up the bill rates around the room, and you will get a real shocker. Your meeting time is REALLY EXPENSIVE, and so should not be wasted, but almost always is.

 

Poorly run companies have terrible meetings. Great companies have great meetings. It is your job to make the meeting great! A great meeting should be as fun as going to the movies. Relevant information is discussed, it is argued by your staff, and then you settle on your strategy for execution.  At the end of the meeting, you should be energized, not sapped of your strength.

One Minute Wednesday - BJN Connect

Welcome to One Minute Wednesdays.

Today I want to tell you about BJN Connect. BJN Connect is a program we have installed to most of the PCs we support to give you even more access to BJN.
From BJN Connect you can open a service request (we call these "tickets"), chat about the ticket, check on what has been done on your ticket, find training, check on invoices (if you are in accounting) and more.
To find it, click on the triangle or "^" in your System Tray (lower right corner of the screen near the clock) and click on the icon that looks like our Logo.

Level3 Suffering Major Outage

Level3 Suffering Major Outage

 Yesterday 8/27/2015, Level3 networks (level3.com) apparently had a serious, nationwide outage of their portion of the Internet backbone, causing access to websites and cloud servers to be somewhat iffy, to all the way unavailable.

Sites such as Yahoo Mail, PSN, Xbox Live, Outlook, BT, Twitch, HBO Go, Craisgslist and many others rely on Level3 for backbone or primary services, leaving users of these networks screaming for help, or just going home to Smart TVs which were no longer smart, and game consoles that were suddenly single user systems.
