“Booyah!” Welcome to a special Sportscenter-themed episode of Up To Speed, complete with sports-related headlines (well, at least one big one).

Start your engines… here comes NASCAR.

Bring out the checkered flag… Verizon is now NASCAR's official partner for wireless telecommunications and 5G mobility. Plus, as the official wi-fi partner of 12 NASCAR tracks, we’ll be modernizing those tracks by improving connectivity over the next three years. This lays the foundation for Verizon 5G to transform the future of racing.

Now that’s an upgrade to the racing experience!

Become a champion with My Edge.

Following on the success of Leadership Edge, we have an exciting new video series for V Teamers called My Edge. Global Learning and Development has partnered with the Verizon Media Studio to translate top concepts from Leadership Edge that promote self-reflection and conversations across Verizon employees. You’ll meet V Teamers applying their edge to strengthen their personal and professional development.

“This series is about challenging ourselves as we imagine our future, innovate to move forward and inspire one another,” says Matty Braden in Learning & Development. “We want people to watch these videos, join the conversation on VZ Web and social media, and ultimately ask themselves, ‘What’s My Edge?’”

The first episode arrives Thursday, February 13, with new episodes dropping every two weeks. Watch them with your team, and share how you’re expanding your edge on social platforms using #MyEdge.

After watching the first episode, if you feel you have team members who are great examples of bringing the Edge principles to life, nominate them by sending their info to jennifer.greenfield@verizon.com. We won’t be able to feature everyone, but we’re looking for more heroes!

Watch, learn, and get inspired.
