Our series on building your ITSM Dream Team has prompted some great feedback so we’ve decided to continue the conversation with a panel discussion on October 22nd! Today we’re going to give you a preview of what to expect and we’ll shed a little light on the members of our panel too!
With each post in the series so far we’ve taken the opportunity to present what we see as some of the most important topics facing the modern ITSM operation. Things like team building, chemistry, keeping morale high, and transferring knowledge, have all come up in our blog discussion. With our Webinar we’d like to explore these in greater detail and introduce some other topics as well.
For the benefit of our audience, we are bringing in some expert voices that can share powerful insights and tips based on their experience. This event will also give us a chance to field some live Q&A from the audience so if you’re experiencing any particular hiccups in your team building, definitely schedule some time to attend live.Introducing You To Our Panel

As the baby boomer generation is in the process of retiring and slowing down their level of work, a significant segment of the U.S. population has started to transition out of the workforce. This is especially true with vocational trades like construction so Tyson founded Goliath Construction Consulting in 2013 to help address the growing skills gap.
With the demand in his industry approaching an all time high, Tyson helps 40 of the largest electrical contractors in the U.S. to fill what are often their “mission critical” positions. He has also built an incredible network of prime candidates over the past decade and communicates with talent on a daily basis. As such, Tyson has a unique perspective on the needs and desires of the modern workforce.
As a member of our our panel Tyson will highlight how company culture is one of the main deciders for job seekers right now and he’ll show you how to ensure you’re meeting the culture expectations of your team. Training often addresses skills gaps so Tyson will provide you with tips on filling your positions of need by focusing on the personality traits that best fit the role. You can connect with Tyson on LinkedIn and follow him on Twitter too.
