At LLoyd, our leadership team has always believed that every corporation has a responsibility to its clients, employees and the marketplaces where it “lives.” Creating programs that embrace volunteerism and ethical responsibility build employee involvement that goes far beyond a daily job description. We believe that corporate leadership must develop and be proactive about nurturing good corporate citizenship.
October ended on a high note when myself, along with LLoydIT’s Vice President, Brian Green, CSP and Executive Director Joe Davis, CSP, attended the National TechServe Alliance Conference in Boca Raton, Florida.
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to attend a unique networking event put together by LIST.net and hosted at Marcum, LLP in Melville.

Like many of life’s endeavors, it takes a certain amount of momentum to really get going. As a college student, my least favorite part of any class was always the beginning. I didn’t have a firm grasp of what was expected and I wasn’t yet in the groove as far as assignments and studying. I always went through a bit of a learning curve to get a feel for expectations though once I had that knowledge, it was generally smooth sailing until the end of the semester.
