Bye bye February and hello Spring! Well almost. Welcome everyone to Viva Scoop, you're monthly update on everything Vivacity Technologies.
Firstly, the horrific situation in Ukraine is no doubt causing many of us to question the world we live in today. Being completely honest its hard to remain upbeat while a war is being fought for a nations freedom. Its utterly shocking to see the negative affects that one man can have on a country, region and the world, but ultimately we have to give back where we can and keep moving forward.
For Vivacity, we are forging ahead with our journey, so without further delay, herewith February's update.
The Viva Team Expands - Stefano Stamato
'Who Luck', as Jim Collins once noted, is when you come across somebody who changes your trajectory for the better. On that note, we're delighted to announce some Viva Who Luck, with the arrival of Stefano Stamato onto the team. Stefano, originally from Brazil, made his way through the America's and eventually landed in Kamloops to undertake a Bachelor's degree in Computing Science. We're delighted that Stefano agreed to join the team and moving forward he'll be leading our Private Key Infrastructure solution. To learn more about Stefano, you can read his full bio on our webpage 'Who we are'.
A New Customer - City of Pitt Meadows
The City of Pitt Meadows is a BC municipality with just over 20,000 residents, while being located 50 minutes by car from downtown Vancouver. In February, the City of Pitt Meadows engaged Vivacity to help with a Business Continuity Plan Assessment focusing on how the city responds in case of cyber attacks, data breaches, network and power outages, as well as a total facility loss.
We're delighted to be working with the City of Pitt Meadows on this project, while supporting another BC municipality.
Living Your Best Life
On a lighter note, there is no shortage of content in the self-help genre, but when Malcolm Gladwell starts talking about an area I'm deeply interested in (time management), I find myself captivated. In this podcast, Malcolm speaks with Oliver Burkeman on Living Your Best Life, which feeds off Oliver's newest book Four Thousand Weeks - Time Management for Mortals. I haven't read the book (yet), but the podcast is a gem. I'll paraphrase an excellent analogy made, "If you’re running and you’re not enjoying it, stop....just walk for a while, catch your breath, run a little slower. You should be there to enjoy yourself. The point of the activity is the moment. It’s not building some kind of complicated sand castle that is going to make you into a super athlete down the road."
Thank you so much for tuning in and don't hesitate to reach out to the Viva team with any questions.
