Candidate Question 3: Techie Gadget

SLA Q: What is the newest “techie” gadget that you have/would like to have, and how do/would you use it to improve the work relationship that you have with your primary clientele?

A: Juanita Richardson – Candidate for President-Elect:

Given that relationships are the most important business "tool" today, any gadget that facilitates communication supporting those relationships is a boon.  For me, that gadget is my iPad. 

My iPad has replaced my laptop as my "go to" tool – the apps are limitless:  I use it to type notes (I have a bluetooth-enabled keyboard) to take down important details from presentations, document tasks, take minutes of meetings; I use it to keep in contact via Skype with work and family; I send and receive emails; my calendar is always up-to-date and keeps me on schedule;  I log time on Facebook, staying in constant communication with my network; I follow issues on Twitter; I look up things I need to know on the fly via Safari.  All of these apps help me manage my relationships in my work and family life – which are becoming ever-more entwined.  And, in my down time, I read books I've borrowed from the public library.  All that, and it weighs about half a kilo!  Next:  I will be able to speak to my gadget just like they do on Star Trek:  "Computer!…"

Our team is always focused on the most successful marketing campaigns, for example, if someone wants to buy cialis online, he knows where to do it because of the quality product and a strong brand.
