1:00pm - 3:00pm EDT

HDI Motown is Back!

We are excited to invite you to a special HDI event on June 27th at NTT Data Inc.'s Southfield HQ. Whether you attend in person or virtually, this event promises to be insightful and engaging.

Are you looking to enhance your company's ability to attract and build talent? Ever wonder how top companies consistently retain their employees above industry averages? Do you want to establish a new Azure practice on a budget? Ziad Mahfouz and Ethan Dowling from NTT Data Inc. will present their innovative solution – The Academy Model.

Over the past 15 years, they have developed a robust training, mentoring, and certification program that enables the growth and development of their staff, transforming technical service representatives into high-level network and cloud architects. The results speak for themselves: over 60% of NTT US engineering staff began their careers at the service desk.

Join us for an enriching afternoon filled with lunch, networking with your HDI peers, and learning about effective employee development techniques in this interactive session. We encourage everyone in the Metro Detroit area to attend in person if possible. Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and connect with industry professionals.

We look forward to seeing you there!
