Subject: Congratulations


My name is Roxanne McCreery, and I¹m president of the Association of Briefing Program Managers (ABPM). It was my great pleasure, on Thursday evening, April 3, to present the
award for "Best New or Renovated Center" to Jim Thomas, Executive Briefing Program Manager for WilTel Communications, and the designer of the WilTel center, Roseanne Bell of Atkins-Bellwether.

The other finalist centers in that category were the Apple regional center in Soho and the Sun Microsystems headquarters center in Menlo Park. The competition was very stiff indeed.

The judges in our program are extremely exacting and strict. Among them, they have over 40 years in the briefing profession managing mature and large programs (Dell, Xerox and AT&T/Avaya). They were very impressed with the elegant design elements, use of light to convey WilTel transporting bandwidth for its customers, extremely effective use of leading edge technology, and focus on contributing to the customer experience with such exciting elements as the glass bridge and glass elevator leading from the Briefing Center to the Observation Room.

I¹m very pleased to offer my congratulations to all of you at Atkins, and especially to Roseanne Bell, for winning the only ABPM award that recognizes innovation and world class calibre excellence in briefing center design.
