About the Program

It’s time to celebrate! The HDI Capital Area Chapter cordially invites you to our Annual Awards Luncheon, a prestigious event where IT Service and Support Managers recognize their outstanding team members for their exceptional achievements and contributions throughout the year. This event, which has become a tradition in the Washington, D.C. area, is an occasion that brings teams together to celebrate excellence and inspire future accomplishments. During the luncheon, we will enjoy an inspirational keynote presentation, a three-course meal, and award presentations to the Best Support Analyst and Best Support Technician nominees. It's a time for networking, sharing success stories, and fostering a sense of motivation and unity among attendees.

This event serves as a platform to honor support professionals who have made a significant impact in their respective roles, leaving a lasting legacy for others to aspire to. It will conclude with the announcement of the winners for Best Support Analyst and Support Technician awards.  The winners will go on to the regional competition, with the Regional Winner being sponsored by Robert Half Technology to attend the HDI Annual conference in Denver, Colorado.

About the Keynote     

The Alex Effect -- Can Water Flow Upstream? 
The Impact ONE Person Can Have on an Entire Organization

Regardless of your position, you are influencing others every day.  The question becomes, Are you influencing in a positive way, or…? 

Who are you influencing?  You actually influence everyone, your peers, your colleagues, your supervisors and managers.  Your influence goes way beyond what you may know, or even who you know.

In this session Gregg will share how one person over 20 years ago is still impacting his life and the life of others within one international organization. 

In this keynote you will learn secrets to becoming a stronger service provider, better leader, stronger team member, and how a few simple actions inspire others around the world.
