OurStory

 


Introduction: A Head-scratcher

Back in 2012, Capitol Presence members, while working for the Federal Government, was put in charge of establishing an intranet – at the time there was no way to share information. Looking for a new challenge Roy accepted the task.


Chapter I: From frustration comes inspiration

Now in charge of the intranet for a 600 employee Super Office, Roy began looking for options and training on these options. With conferences and information mostly in areas banned from Federal travel – he took to online platforms for self-training.
With most of the content broad and difficult to follow, he began to create his own content – through lessons learned – and began teaching these to other Super Office’s and power users. The first SharePoint working groups and Lunch and Learns were born.

Chapter II: A Push Becomes a Company

With detail after detail (Federal equivalent of a ‘Temp’ job) tags in an organization without tech positions, Roy was encouraged by colleagues to take his skills to the private sector.

What was once fear, because passion, and soon 4 fellow risk takers followed him into the unknown to start what is now Capitol Presence.


Chapter III: An Idea is Sparked

The private sector brought on awards and multiple solutions and organizations served with praise. A trend became clear however, that many companies relied on contractors to do the technical work – and then were left with little understanding of the technology they had spent a lot of money on.


Chapter IV: Online Academy is Born

After multiple business meetings with potential clients who had little understanding of cloud applications and SharePoint, the spark became a clear need. The training of intranets and cloud technologies – for those members who weren’t developers but were instead admins, power users, entrepreneurs, or Federal Employees without a tech division.
