Vivit Offers Opportunities for Leadership

Tammy Young
Vivit Chapter and SIGs Chairperson,
Board of Directors

As Vivit was just getting started, Tammy Young was the director of a startup with very little budget for training, so when a Vivit representative approached her at an HP conference in Las Vegas, she was immediately interested in the group’s potential for her team.

"In the beginning, it was a way to reach out and connect with others using the same tools I was at the time,” Tammy said. "I was trying to leverage some of the expertise by going out to the website and saying ‘hey, has anyone tried to do this?’” And she was finding answers.

Now, Tammy is the Chapter and Special Interest Group Chair on the Vivit Board of Directors, and she said it’s never been a better time to take a leadership role in the organization. "There are more leaders in leadership roles in Vivit than ever,” she said. "It’s not just putting you in touch with people using the same software, it’s also putting you in touch with your peers.”
