Networking Success

Continuing my networking saga, I was able to accomplish in 3 months what it took 3 1/2 years to lobby for in the government sector. That said accolades have to go to my manager who understood the company and how to fund the project.  All I needed to do was design and implement the network.  Along with that I established policies and guidelines to protect our information.  But all it takes is one person bringing a floppy from home and accidentally booting from it.   I steered a 500 employee meeting to stave off any other mishaps.  Sadly, overall, the company was on a downward trajectory so I announced my departure.  But, before I left the CEO called me up to his office and said “If you stay, I promise you, you will be the last one out the door.  And that includes me.”  High praise from high places, but not worth the risk.
