LIGHTGRID SUMMIT MEETINGS
LightGrid LLC has instituted Intern Summit Meetings and the first one was held on May 18, 2018, in Richmond, VA. We were briefed on the objective of Intern Summit Meetings, which is to shed light on the ins and outs of certain areas of LightGrid, provide advice and go over potential dangers that could have huge cost in the work place.
LightGrid’s second Intern Summit Meeting took place on June 22, 2018, in Richmond VA at an Innovation Center known as StartUp Virginia, a non-profit organization, dedicated to helping entrepreneurs of high-growth startups reach their full potential. This meeting was particularly focused on explaining how clearances, project management and proposals work with David, Dean and Sarah each explaining one of these topics.
The meeting accomplished several things:
- Helped interns better understand the importance of the processes that make up a business, especially, in the areas of security clearances, recruitment and formulating proposals.
- Provided information and advice to Interns that would help, not only in the office, but life in general.
- Influenced creativity, involvement, and innovation.
- Provided insight
While the meeting was long, we got to go on an interesting tour of the Innovation Center and it did provide some useful information that can be used throughout our life. I strongly suggest anyone who is invited to the meeting to attend.

MICROSOFT OFFICE 365
LightGrid is getting ready to join the MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 BUSINESS EXPERIENCE! From changing the way we use our business mailing systems, to having the latest desktop software as soon as it’is released. MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 is here to help us get more done with efficient tools built into the Office, work better together with Office apps, email, and cloud storage, as well as safely secure our data from external threats and data leaks. OFFICE 365 BUSINESS is simplified for all of us to use to help build LightGrid in the best way possible.
Once we are set with OFFICE 365 BUSINESS, everyone will have the latest Office apps for all devices. Whenever there is a new update needed for Office apps such as Word, Excel, Notebook, etc. OFFICE 365 will immediately notify us to get it done. There are new intelligent tools that OFFICE 365 has and will have available for us to use. For example, while using PowerPoint, new technology can automatically recommend slide designs based on your content, without you having to do it. This can save you time and effort and help you focus on getting more done. OFFICE 365 is constantly inventing new technology for their apps to help us work better with what we are trying to do. One of the first things we are changing is our email system. OFFICE 365 BUSINESS gives us OUTLOOK. OUTLOOK has unique features such as a focus view inbox, which prioritizes important emails that deserve the most attention and that need to be responded to as soon as received. OUTLOOK comes with a calendar for which our schedules can be created and organized. Not only does OUTLOOK give us a complete view of our calendar for the week, it also gives us a complete view of other calendars, such as a team calendar in which everyone in a team can see what everyone else will be working on.
Another good benefit OFFICE 365 BUSINESS offers for LightGrid is helping us work better together. One of the main ways we can work better together is through MICROSOFT TEAMS. MICROSOFT TEAMS is a cloud-based team collaboration software that is part of the OFFICE 365 apps. MICROSOFT TEAMS include business messaging, calling, video meetings, and file sharing, as well as bringing together all information a team has worked on for their projects. Customers can join MICROSOFT TEAMS meetings as well, so it goes deeper than the work done inside LightGrid.
OFFICE 365 BUSINESS will have great results with our company. Being able to work from anywhere on any device in the simplest way possible is going to give everyone a better chance to work successfully. The respective people will have access to control what information gets given as well as remotely wiping business data on lost or stolen devices without affecting personal information. There is so much more that Office 365 business can and will offer, and through time LightGrid will be using it to succeed.

A Fresh Start
As the summer seemingly zooms by, school will soon be approaching for many people. The start of a brand new year and the start of tests, homework, and lots of projects. With these assignments comes a task that many people struggle with, studying. While studying seems boring and most people hate doing it, it can improve memory skills and ultimately will help you learn the subject at hand. Since studying can be hard to develop as a habit; different techniques have been developed that can be efficient for all types of students. These techniques can include flash cards, reviewing material with another person, overlearning (rereading the information even if you think you have it memorized), and just reading the information repeatedly. Studying works through repetitive actions. Also make sure you are focused on the content rather than just reading through the material and not processing anything. Studying may not be the most fun thing to do, but it can help you be successful in passing classes and learning new things that could interest and inspire you.
