On today’s edition of Up To Speed, we celebrated the grand opening of the Executive Briefing Center in Basking Ridge, NJ.

The space is designed to move businesses forward with our innovative solutions and 5G powered technology, through an immersive experience that allows clients and partners to witness the technology in-person.

Executive Briefing Center

Jason Stevens from the Customer and Employee Engagement team for Verizon Business joined us live to share more on what visitors can expect at the Executive Briefing Center. Jason noted that we’re “bringing a variety of different people into the facility where we can showcase a variety of technologies from private wireless, to 5G, to Mobile Edge Compute, AI” and more.

Verizon Business CEO Kyle Malady officially opened the new center with a word of thanks to everyone who made this facility possible, along with a ribbon-cutting ceremony—complete with a Verizon-red ribbon and giant pair of scissors—and shared how the executive briefing program benefits our customers.

Customer accounts come through this HQ Briefing Center every year, and the new room can be configured and tailored to each individual customer’s needs, to really “close sales.”

An Executive Briefing is a customized customer experience designed for listening and learning, showcasing Verizon’s solutions and most importantly, accelerating deals. We’ve tripled the size of our Innovation Showcase from which we can further educate customers on the power of 5G, MEC, FWA, Private Wireless.

As Kyle put it, “when you’re out talking to customers, you can show them a powerpoint,” but “they don’t really get it until they can come to a place like this and actually see the technology at work.” We have 5 locations globally to meet the needs of our customer base. Kyle noted that it’s “important that we spread them out so we can get close to our customers, we can bring them in, we can show them exactly what we’re talking about, and we can close the deal.”


Kyle also shared more about our coach-to-coach Managed Private Wireless Solution, which he recently sat down to discuss with Eli Manning. Eli was “excited about what we’re doing here because it brings coach-to-coach to the modern era,” and our first week putting coach-to-coach into action went smoothly.

Eli “made a joke about how he used to be able to call off plays and say ‘oh, I didn’t hear that,’” but with the reliability of Verizon, “now he can’t use that excuse since coaches know that “everyone’s hearing the plays.”

Kyle closed out by reminding V Teamers that with 19 days left in the quarter, we should all “get out there and sell, sell, sell!”
