Supporting CASA House in Denver

Posted on Friday, June 23, 2017

Last week VTI Security was a contributing sponsor in support of the CASA House grand opening in Denver.  The passion and commitment of John and Stacie Nowak to serve the community was fueled by a generous donation of technology and computer equipment from VTI.  To help the CASA team create a nurturing environment for the children they serve, Closet Factory Colorado donated a new home office study. The space was designed by Stacie Nowak and decorated with the help of fellow designer Kim Magee.

At our company, philanthropy is more than just a charitable donation.  In collaboration with our Colleagues and the organizations they champion, we work to create a personal, measurable difference in the communities where we live and work.

The Child Advocates-Denver CASA have moved into a new home located in Capitol Hill. This community service project partnered together 5280 Home, volunteers from ASID Colorado and 45 different companies around Colorado to help furnish, light and tidy up the new place for its grand opening. Please join us there where Mayor Michael B. Hancock will cut the ribbon on this wonderful space as all are welcome to attend and tour the new home.  Together we can make a difference.  Enjoy some pics....

Colleague Profile: An Investment in Continuing Education

Posted on Thursday, June 01, 2017

Culture is the glue that binds an organization together, the blood that runs through its veins, the heart and soul of the company – and the code no competitor is able to copy.  At VTI, we cultivate an 'entrepreneurial spirit' among our Colleagues that affords them the opportunity to perform.  This extends to Continuing Education.  We are excited to highlight the journey of Bill Desmond, Project Management Supervisor, in our Minneapolis office.

"Only you can decide how much you want to grow and learn.  Toastmasters is out there as an option for your growth," Bill Desmond.

Bill's journey at Toastmasters has been an engaging process over the past six years.  Having reached milestones within the Program such as Competent Communicator and Competent Leader, Bill has continued his investment to attain the title of Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM).  "When you reach the DTM, you have performed about 55 speeches in front of different level clubs or groups of other Toastmasters and held several club level roles (such as President) in addition to a leadership role above the club level.  Last, you have several tasks that push you outside your comfort zone and are made to stretch."  

Bill has taken a failing Club, became the Club Coach, and reinvigorated a culture of pride and accomplishment within the Club.  This Club, less than a year ago, had 3 members who attended and now has 10 members and on their way to the designation of Presidents Select Club.  Congratulation, Bill, on your commitment to growth and the results of your investment.
