RevCat Founders to Share Insights on Unlocking the Power of Relationship Assets During 2006 CIO Forum Event

Caruso and Padwa to Speak on the Topic of Leveraging Relationships to Meet Business Objectives

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- RevCat, the pioneer in relationship asset management, today announced its company co-founders, Jim Caruso and Jill Padwa, will be speaking on the topic of "The Art and Science of Leveraging Relationships" as part of the 2006 CIO Forum, taking place May 10-13, 2006, aboard the Norwegian Dawn. Launching from New York City, the event cruise will feature three days of keynotes, seminars and workshops designed for its audience of more than 380 IT executives representing a "who's who" of Fortune 500 companies across a variety of industries.

The RevCat session will focus on helping CIOs more productively benefit from their relationship assets and build more effective ones for the future. Through Caruso's and Padwa's extensive years of experience in IT and business management, they have learned that IT professionals continually struggle with the following:

--  What to ask for from their business contacts
--  How to navigate their network of contacts, and
--  How to hone relationships so they become more valuable over time.
The session will provide an overview of specific and proven processes to help professionals better identify, leverage and enhance their most productive business relationships. Through this approach, professionals will expand their knowledge base and increase their business value to their projects, team and overall organization.

"Companies have long missed one critical point: relationship management is not just the job of sales," commented Padwa. "CIOs and their teams must rely on successful relationships to efficiently operate the business of IT. But few IT organizations spend the time learning to build and utilize their relationships to get their job done faster and better. This problem has only been made worse by today's distributed, disconnected workforce. We'll give attendees the practical knowledge they need to develop a repeatable 'success path' for leveraging relationships to meet business objectives."
