The HDI Orange County Chapter invites you to be a part of our annual Analyst of the Year gala event!
Deadline to purchase your ticket is November 29th, so Act Now!
Every year, HDI sponsors an event to recognize the brightest stars in technical support. Whether it's traditional IT support or desktop support technicians, HDI encourages employers to nominate their star performers as an acknowledgement of their valuable contributions and the chance of this being recognized at the national level.
Individuals nominated are screened by a panel and are considered for one winning slot as either Analyst or Desktop Support Technician of the Year for the chapter. Those who are selected go on to compete at the Region level and (potentially) the National level at the HDI Annual Conference.
We often discuss the benefits of recognition; Now that you nominated your Rockstar, it's time to recognize them at the HDI Orange County Analyst & Desktop Technician of the year Awards Banquet.
We have nominations from the following companies this year:
- Superior Court of California, Orange County
- First American
- Allied Digital
- Orange County Sanitation District
- University of Southern California
- American Honda Motor Company
- Latham & Watkins, LLP
Come Join us at the Atrium Hotel in Irvine, where we have great food, a great speaker, and will all have a great time celebrating our Analyst and Desktop Technicians.
On a regular basis people need to market themselves, their service desk or their ideas with busy people. They need quick and to the point information. 30 seconds can be more valuable than 30 minutes. Learn the art of communicating quickly and powerfully and get what you want in 30 seconds or less. The technique we will review can be applied to all your communication including staff meetings and memos. You will walk away with delivery tips and a template you can use to get what you want in 30 seconds.
