We do a lot of work for companies in the energy business, with BP, Shell and numerous other oil field companies being long-time clients. So, when we visited Houston May 3-5 to take in all the latest in offshore thinking and technology at the OTC, we took the opportunity to gather our clients together to share some social time, exchange ideas and hear about the latest innovations from the Bovo-Tighe team.
What is an employee development outfit doing wandering around a technology conference? Keeping up to date. We do extensive work with oil field team leaders and workers, for instance, improving their leadership skills and employee engagement skills. Knowing their business allows us to more effectively facilitate, coach and mentor them, which leads to better long-term, sustainable results. Plus, it’s just great to sit with clients “off the clock” to get to know them better socially. That is, after all, part of what we teach, and we strive to practice what we preach!
It was great fun, and very enlightening for us. We look forward to coming back to the OTC next year!
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation recently won a Webby for their powerful promotional video. Their simple, straightforward presentation about their mission let the story tell itself, without amplification. The message stands by itself, with a force that carried them to victory. Their story is so compelling it is hard to deny its effect on the viewer. Bravo to them for going straight to the message, sharing the truth and asking for help without frills or tricks.
We at Bovo-Tighe are proud to be able to work with the Glaser Foundation. We emphasize the “Pursuit of Truth” as part of our Foundations of Excellence model in our employee development work. This video is a great example of the power of both Pursuit of Truth and Excellence.
