Harrison Ford is a MTI Brand Ambassador

I sat down with the family over the weekend to watch a film. Sky Box Office suggested Air Force One, a 1997 blockbuster starring Harrison Ford. Mr Ford plays the President who has to rescue himself and his family from Hijackers.

It was a good film. Nominated for two Oscars in fact.

The highlight for us was the shot below. I’m sure you will enjoy it.

I think this means that we can tell clients and prospects that, as well as helping to rescue the leader of the free world, MTI also contributed to two of Harrison Ford’s Oscar nominations. Just don’t run it past legal! 🙂

MTI Sets the Agenda

I am very proud of the quality of the people that we have at MTI. As a services business, it is our people that make the difference to our clients and partners. I regularly get feedback from those we do business with about the quality of our team. I am always proud when I hear about a senior company director, a specialist technician, a member of the sales team or someone from our accounts teams who has gone the extra mile to help a customer.

MTI’s team go the extra mile

I am also extremely proud of the fact that people stay with MTI. While the rest of the industry suffers from revolving doors, good people stick with MTI. Those of you who follow my blog will have noted the various occasions where I have been able to celebrate and thank individuals who have been with me for landmark anniversaries. 

Business is full of moments of truth. Whether these are sales achieved, feedback from clients and partners or the moment a candidate we want to hire says yes. It is generally when those outside our business react positively to what is inside that I get that validation that we are getting things done properly.

An ongoing moment of truth is when MTI is featured in the media. Journalists have any number of qualified and articulate volunteers who want to express an opinion to raise their profile. Journalists can choose to get the views of companies who are listed on the stock exchange, whose opinions affect investors as well as customers. They can also speak to manufacturers and vendors of technology, who develop technology directly. MTI has neither of these benefits and yet our spokespeople are regularly featured and invited to contribute to the discourse on what is going on in the UK business and technology landscape.

Press interest in MTI is on the increase

Looking ahead, we can expect coverage from Alan Ryan in Personnel Today on the subject of hacking. Alan has also has provided thought leadership to Tech Week Europe. Rainer Held has been interviewed by IDG, and Kevin Foster has two pieces due for publication in Test Magazine and TechWeek Europe. 

I know that generating this coverage takes time and thought on behalf of our spokespeople. We are a sales lead company. I know we all measure success in terms of tangible output, which is sales. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate those who have had a part to play in raising MTI’s profile. By earning endorsement from the media, we are building the profile, awareness and credibility of MTI. This leads to greater levels of traffic to our website, makes sales calls a little easier and reminds prospects and customers that MTI means business.
