Digicel General Manager Barry O'Brien
I like to be treated good as I am sure most of you like to be. A few drinks, hor d'ouvres and some blackberry cake is a good start for me.
A couple weeks ago I attended the launch of the first ever Mega Store and Blackberry Centre in the Caribbean at the Digicel Barbados, Broad Street Branch. I was greeted at the door by the Digicel Girls who I must say were well presented and looking good. No, No it was not only me that commented about them other people said the same thing. It set a good tone for the evening.
I after I slipped my business card into the pool for the blackberry draw and entered the event. I started my mingling and networking catching up with a few people and in a few minutes the speeches began with the new Marketing Manager Janelle Hunte acting as the Chairperson for the evening. After a few speeches the ribbon was cut and we entered the new mega store where they gave away a few blackberry compliments RIM-Blackberry. Corey Graham 2.0 name was not pulled oh no I am not bitter at all. I was not really hoping to win another blackberry.
Actually I was looking to see if I could get the Blackberry Experts in the booth and asking them a few questions so that i could grasp what the Blackberry center is all about.
Yeah that's my story and I am sticking with it. If you sensed me being a bit sharp that the reason why.
Lol really though There were 2 Digicel Experts on hand who did seem to know their stuff when I got to talking with them. They were not behind the booth but they were approachable.
Getting serious again,
I have to commend Digicel for launching this initiative which is really, really needed here. I was reminded of how much it was needed just a few deays ago when I got a call that went something like this
Sexy voice come on the line
"Hey Corey. How are you going?"
"I am pretty how are you doing?
"Well my husband has a problem with his blackberry and I know you are a Blackberry Freak can you help me …."
Please, Please let it be known that I am always glad to help, I enjoy the gift of being able to do my good deed each day, but … anyways I will deal with that later.
I am just trying to establish there is great need for Blackberry owners to be able to take their Blackberry woes to someone who is readily available.
As a technie, 2 of the most important features when I am deciding on an important and hard working little black electornic device are
You must be able to get some assistance when things go wrong. And if you know electronics you know what I am talking about. From that background, any initiative for enhancing customer support gets my vote. Again I commend Digicel on this initiative which they said they turned around in 3 months time and RIM-Blackberry came on board. Be proud of yourselves.
Now in terms of the mega store. Let me say that Blackberry cake was really, really good. Now the mega store hmm, well I didn't really grasp the reason why it was now being called a mega store? But with Christmas such a just short time away, let's give Digicel some space to see what they have in store for us for Christmas time this year. I mean with CEO talking about Digicel building a wimax network, providing PBX services and working on providing landline services, only time will tell what this Mega Store thing truly is.
You can take a listen to Digicel's General Manager Barry O'Brien speech which tells the story of First ever Digicel Mega Store and Blackberry Store.
