Greetings from the Internet – where we are continuing to work hard to adapt to new ways of conducting business! We had another very effective Coffee Collaboration this week. Some of us needed a warm beverage more than others this week; I sure hope everyone is handling these record temperatures in the same way everyone is handling changes to our business climate.
Our meaningful discussion with colleagues this week centered around the exciting concept of kitting. We discussed ways to utilize this concept for programs such as new-hires, employee appreciation, virtual events, and more. Kitting is particularly enticing now that so many companies are relying on telework these days. Our group brought their usual creativity to the collaboration. The tips and tricks we learn from one another are nothing short of remarkable.
I’m always grateful for these informal, but insightful gatherings. I walk away with new ideas from everyone in the field, as well as, our supplier partners. What great fresh concepts and ideas! I ask myself ‘what is working for the Vernon Account Executives?’ One of the greatest things I learned from my business mentors is to never stop thinking about new ways to get into the market.
Keep the ideas coming! The Vernon Company was practically founded on a ‘social’ business model. While we all long for the days when we can gather together in person, enjoying stories about our families and our business, I’m proud to see how well we’ve evolved into life online.
