My New Project

My job to 99% of my friends and family is a mystery.  I do something that has to do something with selling stuff that's somewhat related to cell phones or computers.

My job is to create awareness/buzz on our products to help Agilent sell more stuff.  The stuff we sell tests anything electronic: cell phones, computers, tvs, etc.  Your cell phone calls the correct person you dial b/c of my equipment. Your USB stick copies information from your computer correctly because of my equipment.  You can "save" information because of my equipment.

This past Monday my company launched a website, through a media house, promoting digital items.  This site is centered around the largest trade show where we showcase my equipment: DesignCon. It has over 5,000 attendees over 4 days and we gEEk it up:)

This site is sponsored by Agilent, and I'm the lead from my company working on this site and putting our content there. It's an all consuming project, and I still have my day job, but it's fun.

Check it out- and see what I can help pull off and do for "outbound marketing".

The Shamree Tornado

We are in our last fiscal month of the year at Agilent and busily planning for the next. I'm trying to spend money before it's gone, and decide how to spend next years money- so I know what to ask for. I'm trying to ensure I meet my Q4 goals of webhits and name captures while planning how to increase that by 30% for next year (a lofty goal). In the middle of all these crazy things I feel a sense of peace, a calmness.  I feel like I am in the eye of the tornado and creating a lot of buzz around me.
I'm planning on a new poster. I'm going to do a crossword puzzle poster, no wait! I'm going to do an I Spy collage poster, no wait! I'm going to just put information and images on it.....
Yes my mind changes directions that quickly, and I just run with it.
I love to try new things regardless of what's in my path--- I kind of just crunch right through.
It's craziness all around me with budgets and planning and changes, but in the middle of the tornado--- it's peaceful.

Fiscal Year 13, here I come- watch out!
