The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A network distie has decided to inject a bit of excitement into its seminars on voice and data convergence by sending out an invite with a "VD Clinic" motif on letters and faxes.

East Grinstead-based Norwood Adam Distribution came up with the idea of developing a coat of arm featuring two needles (voice and data) crossing under the words convergence and the motto "Injetum Wisdom: Filthy Lucre". The idea of the logo, which was thought up by the firm's sales director and can be seen here, is to make invites to seminars of voice data convergence more sexy.

Apparently the idea has received a mixed response but those people who've a sense of humour have found it an amusing way to illustrate what is, let's face it, an important but somewhat dry subject.

Asked whether allusions to hard drug abuse and sexual disease might put punters off convergence, a rep from Norwood Adam, said "convergence is only dangerous if people aren't educated - that's why we're educating people."

The last of eight seminars being run by the independent distributor (which works with Ericcson, Alcatel and Extreme Networks but not Cisco - hence the sense of humour?) is on 22 February in Cobham, West Sussex. ®
