Global Introduction

We would like all members of the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Community to have the opportunity to “meet” you prior to the celebration via Inside VT KnowledgeWorks, the VT KnowledgeWorks Blog.

What we need from you

– A globally-relevant photo of your company or some of your employees that we can post with your profile on the blog. Any picture will do; we just want our global guests to start identifying with you now in the form of a picture.

– A Word document that includes:

  1. The title of your company as you want it branded.
  2. A press release-style company description of 2-3 sentences, i.e. “CompanyName is a…”
  3. A list of the people pictured in your photo from left to right.

Please send your Word doc and visuals as separate attachments to Lindsey Eversole, [email protected].

In the past two years, since the founding of the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership Week, Inside VT KnowledgeWorks has received visits from more than 120 countries. We look forward to introducing you to VT KnowledgeWorks’s global audience!

Thank you!


If you would like additional public relations benefits as a result of your VTKW membership, Handshake Media, Incorporated, a VT KnowledgeWorks member company, has offered a “Ten Facts Post” on Handshake 2.0, pro bono, for VTKW member companies. Handshake Media manages the VTKW blog, so your post would appear first on Handshake 2.0, then on the the VTKW blog, giving you online reach with both audiences.

Here’s information about the 10 Facts Post.
