Blog Post created by Kendra Walsh Employee on Dec 4, 2017

The famous ringmaster P. T. Barnum once said, “Without promotion, something terrible happens – nothing!” But you don’t have to be a showman to reap the rewards of promoting your IT success story. Having worked with scores of customers on their digital transformation journeys, we know that every successful company has a unique story to tell. That means your company, too.


There are many benefits when you promote your IT success story. Here are five reasons to start sharing NOW: 


1. Gain visibility and network opportunities

Telling a story about how your organization achieves positive business outcomes helps you gain visibility and network within your industry, with peers and throughout the global business community.

Publicly announcing successful project outcomes is an easy and effective way to promote awareness of your team’s efforts, reinforce the value of team members and motivate employees to contribute more to your organization’s success.
