Accelerate Convergence

Business Sales has been included in a prestigious new programme called Directors Club, which supports and encourages the acceleration of convergence in the BT business. This is at the heart of our own goal here in Business Sales; to shout about convergence and to be the leading provider of networked IT services.

Achieving this will require relentless focus from people across the organisation to sell our services to all of our business and wholesale customers. We need to be the kind of organisation that is tenacious and committed to winning business and role modelling the very best of customer-focused behaviours. These are the drivers that are at the heart of the Directors Club.

We need to accelerate convergence. Each of you has a part to play in ensuring our success as a leading player in the convergence arena, and therefore each of you deserves the opportunity to be recognised for your achievements. As such, people in Business Sales are eligible to take part in this programme.

Marvellous. Any reader considering a career involving whalesong and the faint whiff of joss-sticks would do well to relentlessly focus on the truly inspired "role modelling the very best of customer-focused behaviours", which itself merits a six-day skiing trip to Colorado for the author. Well done that man. ®
