Coffee Coaching wins Strategic Video Award!


We are excited to announce that two of our Coffee Coaching videos have won awards from the Strategic Video Awards . The first, “Discover the new HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Server”, has won a Strategic Video Award in the category of Direct Marketing- B2B. Our other award winning video, “Extreme IT Makeover: Mission Arlington”, received an Honorable Mention in the category of Community Relations. These are not Coffee Coaching’s first SVA awards, last year Coffee Coaching’s Extreme IT Makeover program won the Community Relations Strategic Video Award for the video “Extreme IT Makeover: FEAT of Washington”.


Coffee Coaching, a joint HP-Microsoft program, is a social community where SMB resellers can learn and interact with Microsoft and HP subject matter experts. Coffee Coaching’s videos allow these industry experts to share information about the latest products and trends in the dynamic SMB IT business. In our winning Coffee Coaching session, “Discover the new HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Server”, Shab Madina, Worldwide Product Line Manager for the HP ProLiant ML Servers, discusses the new HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 server and the Gen8 innovations, which make the ML350 one of the most complete servers in its category.


The Extreme IT Makeover program is another important piece of Coffee Coaching. The Extreme IT Makeover is a program created to help small, not for profit businesses improve their IT. In “Extreme IT Makeover: Mission Arlington” HP, Microsoft, Intel, Networking Results, and HTG Peer Groups, worked together to give Mission Arlington the perfect IT infrastructure. First, Networking Results, a longtime HTG member company based in Arlington, TX, analyzed Mission Arlington’s needs and designed the ideal IT architecture to meet their needs. HP, Microsoft, and Intel, donated the hardware and software, which Networking Results installed at Mission Arlington.


Video is one of the fastest growing communication tools. The Strategic Video Awards were created for everyone who uses video to communicate for corporations, associations, non-profits, public institutions, colleges and universities, PR firms and ad agencies and custom publishers. Unlike many other programs, the Strategic Video Awards judges the effectiveness of the message, versus the technical aspects of the video itself.  


We would like to thank many people that helped make these wins possible. Our amazing on screen talents: Shab Madina, Lucy Ellis, Jane Takeuchi, Eric Townsend, Arlin Sorensen, Jeff Howard, Matthew Reid, and Rich Papaioannou, as well as Tillie Burgin and Darrel Phipps of Mission Arlington.
