    P&V Enterprises Successfully Produces “Hybrid” Meeting to 600+ Viewers Worldwide

    All-day event is broadcast live to participants in 80 countries,
    and 50 in-house attendees

    New York, NY – November 6, 2015 — When Manhattan-based P&V Enterprises, an event planning, production and management firm, was asked by a global NGO to produce an all-day “hybrid” meeting, with live interaction from an online international audience from 80 countries worldwide, they jumped at the opportunity.

    “We had handled several meetings and webcasts for this client in the past,” said P&V President and Partner Pat Ahaesy, “but never anything on this scale. It took over two months of planning and we drew up a lot of contingency plans, just in case.”

    The event was held from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Scandinavia House in New York City to an in-house audience of about 50 attendees, and simultaneously broadcast around the globe to online participants as far-flung as Kenya, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Mongolia.

    While some juggling was necessary to accommodate the multiple time zones of attendees and presenters, the major logistic challenge was great disparities in bandwidth size and reliability per geographic region, which could dramatically affect the broadcast.

    As a troubleshooting precaution, P&V pre-recorded the presentations of allremote speakers, through Webex, to ensure accessibility and broadcast quality. These pre-recorded presentations were incorporated into the Wirecast streaming software and run on the 1Beyond StreamMachine multi-camera “TV studio in a box” video system. This solution enabled P&V to simultaneously deal with the speakers as they came online, as well as service the live audience and global webcast participants. Everyone could see the event as it was actually taking place.


    “It was my job to watch the virtual presentations in case there were any glitches, so we could take action immediately to remedy the situation,” said Ahaesy. “Fortunately, everything ran smoothly, so my job was made easy.”

    “What amazing teamwork from P&V Enterprises,” said M. Carmelita Francois, Project Manager. “We had more than 50 attendees in-house and 600 online participants from 80 countries, representing government partners, local academia, researchers, and international organizations. To this day, I am still getting email from participants about how great the event was. P&V’s team did a super job.”

    To learn more, contact Pat Ahaesy, P&V Enterprises, at (212) 534-3052 or

    In my time meeting with SMB owners — from Millennials to Boomers — across the country, I've learned that there's no single factor that can guarantee future success. Instead, there are a dizzying array of traits, unique circumstances and opportunities that determine who thrives and who doesn't. There are, however, characteristics found in so many successful people, it's difficult to deny their influence. Greg Reid, a motivational speaker and author of the Think and Grow Rich series, says one such factor is "stickability"  — a term he coined to describe the persistence of those who have gone on to become great business leaders. In the below post, Greg shares his perspective on why stickability is the single most important quality to be cultivated in anyone who aspires to be a business owner. I'm thrilled to have Greg contribute a series of content to the SMB blog and think you'll find great insight from his unique approach to achievement and motivation.
    One of the greatest single traits shared by men and women who have been successful in business — and in pursuit of their life goals — is persistence. I like to call that quality stickability, which the great Napoleon Hill, the father of the modern philosophy of success, recognized in these words:
    "One reason why most men seldom accumulate fortunes until they have passed well beyond the 40-year goal post of life is that they must undergo failures and adversities and overcome sufficient obstacles to develop in them sufficient knowledge to accumulate wealth."
    In other words they must — a strong and unmistakable commandment — persist in following their dreams, their most cherished ideas through to the end. Of course, exceptions to every rule abound (think of the twenty-something billionaires of the technology revolution), but it's fascinating to observe how stickability — the ability of the determined leader to stick like glue to a passionately held goal through any and all adversity — works as a powerful tool for all who choose to employ it.
    I spoke to Martin Cooper, a visionary and an excellent example of stickability. Credited as the inventor of the modern-day cellular phonehe took advantage when the opportunity presented itself. He didn't procrastinate, but took continued action against doubters and unparalleled obstacles.
    Cooper began by developing portable products, including the first hand-held police radios made for the Chicago police department, and citywide pagers, which lead to the invention of the first 800 MHz cellular phone, often called the “Brick" in 1973. You remember those big devices seen on Miami Vice that weighed about 2.5 pounds each?
    Sure there were car phones at the time, but nobody thought that having a portable phone would be of any value. Martin, however, saw things differently and envisioned that the phone should be so portable that it could go anywhere.
    After countless hours of trial-and-error, and in defiance of skeptics, Cooper eventually became the first person in history to make a public call using what he referred to as a "personal telephone."
    By 2006, Martin Cooper and his wife, Arlene Harris (an ingenious innovator in her own right), had founded Great Call, makers of Jitterbug, in cooperation with the Verizon network. They marketed it to the elderly and those specifically looking for simplicity — a true modern example of applying the "Keep It Simple, Stupid" (KISS) formula in a practical and successful manner.
    What was the secret behind this success story? The understanding that stickability has to be consistent with flexibility. Balance between persistence and flexibility is crucial. Sometimes you can take stickabilitytoo far. It's important to know the difference between perseverance and stubbornness.
    You must be able to adjust if needed. This means, of course, that you first have to be able to identify when adjustments need to be made. You must be fair and open with yourself. Sometimes this includes listening to others' feedback, even when you don't wish to hear it.
    According to Cooper, obstacles can do one of two things:
    One, they can make you quit.
    Or, two, they can reinforce your resolution.
    How many creations in our lives would we not have today if the inventors had let obstacles stop them?
    What would your life look like if you had quit after the first failed attempt? You would have never learned how to walk, ride a bike or even drive. Do you still have the same level of determination and persistence that you had in your youth to achieve your goals?
    When faced with challenges, leaders know that if one process fell short, another one would eventually succeed. This a fact; not something to be hoped for. For every obstacle there is a solution — and the solution is simply never to quit before all options have been exhausted.
    Martin Cooper's thoughts are summarized in this powerful message: The key is to listen to your inner voice, and outside counsel, while being willing to adjust along the journey.

    Many businesses are born because entrepreneurs have a strong sense of purpose – there's a problem to solve or a passion they can offer the world. As a business grows, it's infused with an electric sense of possibility from new people and ideas. But it's often during these times of growth that entrepreneurs feel like their grasp on everything is slipping away.
    We approached Gino Wickman, founder of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a business system that helps companies mold strong leadership teams for long-term success. Gino, an entrepreneur since the age of 21, is the bestselling author of Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business. In the below post, and this great video, he shares his insights on breaking through to the next level without losing sight of yourself or your business.
    Most of our clients come to us because they're hitting a ceiling. It's a natural phenomenon that many companies experience once they passed the startup phase. Now they're a successful small or mid-sized business, but they've grown to a point where sheer passion and drive isn't enough to carry the organization forward. There's a need for systems, process, structure and leadership.
    One of my favorite examples is Sachse Construction, a Detroit-based commercial construction firm, which has been an EOS client for over 10 years. Founder Todd Sachse's business was hitting a major ceiling when he reached out to us, but he couldn't point to a specific reason or problem.
    In our decades of helping small businesses get unstuck, we've been able to take this intangible feeling of frustration and get to its core. Fundamentally, it's about the people – after all, businesses run on human energy.
    What Sachse needed was an operating plan to harness this energy and channel it in the right direction. We got to work helping Sachse build a strong leadership team with laser focus. First, we got the business owner and the leadership team into one room for a series of full-day sessions. The idea was to give them a holistic approach to treating the entire company, rather than just symptoms.
    Below are a few tips we used during these sessions that you can use in your own business:
    1.) Share your vision for the company – The first step is to get the leadership team's ideas out of their heads and into writing. This lets you see where there's overlap with the rest of your team and where there's almost no alignment.
    2.) Get your leadership team to agree on answers to eight core questions – To do this in a structured way, we use the EOS Vision/Traction Organizer, which you can download for free. The basic questions are:
    • What are our core values?
    • What's our business's core focus or sweet spot?
    • What's our 10-year target?
    • What's our marketing strategy?
    • What's the 3-year picture?
    • What's the one-year plan?
    • What are the quarterly priorities?
    • What are all the issues, obstacles, and barriers that we have to solve?
    3.) Develop a vision statement based on your answers – Every effective leadership team has a strong vision statement that defines who they are, what they do, where they are going and how they will get there. This will inform every decision within the company for years to come. It's your guiding light, even as people come and go.
    4.) Create a solid leadership team based on the vision – This was a real challenge for Sachse because there ended up being some changes to the original team. This isn't unusual, though. I'd say about eighty percent of the time, we end up making changes to the leadership team.
    But this isn't a value judgment or indictment. Rather, it's about defining the core functions of the business. Put simply, the leadership team is made up of the people who head up these major functions. For this process, I use an Accountability Chart and the People Analyzer to ensure the right people are in the right seats.
    Once the new leadership team and vision statement are in place, then the answers to formerly confusing decisions seem to come into focus. You get unstuck. This is when companies begin to see a shift in culture that cracks the ceiling.
    As for Sachse Construction, over a decade later, they've experienced incredible growth – as much as 400-500% – through a recession in one of the hardest hit cities. But over the years, they've had to get unstuck more than once.
    If you find yourself getting stuck again, go back to the vision your leadership team agreed on and work towards getting everyone on board again. Once you have the structure in place, it's as simple as reviewing, refining, and reminding yourself about the core focus that gave you passion and purpose in the first place.

    Do you spend money on technology, or do you invest in technology? If you
    spend money on technology, you buy software after you already need it.
     Purchasing is reactive. Excess money is spent on services you ‘think’ you’ll 
    need, but do not actually use. 

    If you invest in technology, you do things a little differently. You think long-term
     and invest in solutions that grow with you. And you find innovative ways to
    wring more value out of every dollar.
    Cloud technology – more for your money
    Today, the investment approach is best represented by cloud computing.
    When your IT solutions are hosted in the cloud, you avoid high capital expenses
    associated with on-premises technology. That’s true even when you need to
    add more storage or host new applications. And business costs are more predictable
     with the flexible subscription models offered by many cloud solutions.
    Hybrid cloud – an easy first step
    The cloud is not an all-or-nothing proposition. You may want to keep some
     applications on your in-house servers, and move others to the cloud. With
    the “hybrid” approach, you have the flexibility to run your apps and host your
     data in the way that is best for your business. That could be onsite, in the
    cloud, or both.

    A great place to start is with solutions like Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and
    Windows Server. Using one, all, or a combination of the three, you can quickly
     adapt to changing business demands with affordable solutions.

    If you want to host your applications in the cloud, Office 365 provides anywhere
     access to the familiar Office experience, from desktop to device. And
    Microsoft Azure offers a fully managed cloud infrastructure to host business apps.
     You get the ability to quickly deploy new apps or move them from onsite
     servers to the cloud when it makes sense.
    Virtualization – minimize operating costs
    If you do have servers running on-site apps, expanding your business often
    requires new servers to support added software. But, using a server with
    virtualization built in, like Windows Server 2012 R2, lets you run more apps on
     the same server. You get added capacity without the added cost of new hardware,
     IT maintenance, and power bills.

    Virtualization can also make the upgrade process simpler. This is especially
    important if you’re running Windows Server 2003 because support will end
    for this product (incl. Windows Small Business Server 2003) on July 14, 2015.
     Upgrade now to Windows Server 2012 R2.
    Pay as you go
    Whether you were purchasing servers, software or services, the “spend” approach
    used to be the only option. You had to pay up-front for what you thought you’d need,
     be it more storage or a new email application. Now, cloud technologies offer a
     more efficient payment model: pay as you go.

    Better yet, don’t wait until you need new IT solutions. Take a first step into the
    cloud and you can start saving money while also preparing for growth.
    Invest in your future 
    The next time you need new technology, think about how you can invest your
    money smarter. Can you lower upfront costs with the cloud’s pay-as-you-go
     structure? Use the hybrid model to move to the cloud on your terms? Get more
     value out of your servers through virtualization?

    For example, Office 365 is a flexible subscription that covers a suite of apps.
    This payment structure minimizes upfront costs and provides the flexibility to
    quickly change your subscription based on the number of users or services. With
     Microsoft Azure, you pay only for resources you use. From there, you can adjust
     service up or down to meet changing business demands.

    U.S. Department of Homeland Security

    Dec. 16, 2015

    Contact: DHS Press Office, (202) 282-8010


    Background: The National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) 

    In 2011, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) replaced the color-coded alerts of the Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS) with the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS), designed to more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the American public. 

    When it was launched, NTAS featured an advisory system that consisted of two types of “Alerts”: Elevated and Imminent. An “Elevated Alert” is intended to warn of a credible terrorist threat against the United States and its territories that is general in both timing and potential location such that it is reasonable to recommend implementation of protective measures to thwart or mitigate against an attack. An “Imminent Alert” is intended to warn of a credible, specific, and impending terrorist threat or on-going attack. DHS has continuously evaluated intelligence threat streams through the NTAS process since the system’s creation, but it has never issued an Alert because neither the circumstances nor threat streams have risen to the required level or purpose of the system.

    In order to determine how DHS can more effectively and quickly communicate information to the public and other partners regarding threats to the homeland in the evolving threat environment, and following discussions with homeland security stakeholders, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson directed a review of the NTAS to consider possible revisions. Based on this review, DHS is updating the NTAS to add a new form of advisory – the NTAS “Bulletin” – to the existing NTAS “Alerts.” 

    NEW: NTAS “Bulletins” 

    DHS will achieve the objective of more flexible, timely, and useful communication with the public regarding terrorist threats through the introduction of an additional component of NTAS to accompany the existing NTAS Alerts: the NTAS “Bulletin.” NTAS Bulletins will provide information describing broader or more general trends and current developments regarding threats of terrorism. They will share important terrorism-related information with the American public and various partners and stakeholders, including in those situations where additional precautions may be warranted, but where the circumstances do not warrant the issuance of an “elevated” or “imminent” Alert. An NTAS Bulletin will summarize the issue and why it is important for public awareness, outline U.S. Government counterterrorism efforts, and offer recommendations to the public on how it can contribute to the overall counterterrorism effort. 

    With the introduction of the Bulletin, NTAS will now consist of two types of advisories: Bulletins and Alerts. As under the existing system, if there is sufficient information regarding a credible, specific terrorist threat against the United States, such that it is reasonable to recommend implementation of protective measures to thwart or mitigate against an attack, DHS will share an NTAS Alert – either Elevated or Imminent – with the American public. The Alert may include specific information, if available, about the nature of the threat, including the geographic region, mode of transportation, or critical infrastructure potentially affected by the threat, as well as steps that individuals and communities can take to protect themselves and help prevent, mitigate, or respond to the threat. 

    The update to the NTAS announced today will allow us to better achieve the goal of making sure Americans across the country have the information they need to keep themselves and their communities safer. This action is not in response to a specific, credible threat to the homeland, but is a prudent measure to ensure that Americans are better prepared and aware of the evolving terrorist threats.
