Russ Haynal - Services /Background
This page provides an overview of the consulting services, and describes some of my background.
There is a significant learning curve in navigating the Internet's vast information resources, and how to use the many software tools to locate and retrieve this information. Too many organizations bring Internet to their employee's workstations, but never provide training. The result is that employees wander aimlessly around the Internet - never finding the information that could help your organization.
I have created several of my own Internet courses and have taught over 30,000 professionals since 1994. Clients include: AT&T, UUNET/Verizon, Newbridge Networks, Teleglobe, Bell Atlantic and NASDAQ/NASD. I cover all major internet tools, business uses of the Internet, and can include specific sites of interest to your organization. Courses can be held at your facility, and can be customized to meet your needs (software, users, industry). For ongoing training, I can create very customized course such as "What every ISP employee should know about the Internet".
|Briefings & Seminars|
I have spoken about the Internet at hundreds of events for numerous clients. I have an enthusiastic presentation style which gives attendees a sense of urgency and excitement about the Internet. Presentations have included Business Uses of Internet, State of the Internet, Reengineering the Enterprise using Internet, An Introduction to WWW and the Internet, Internet Implementation Tips, A Tour of the Internet, etc.

|Monthly Columnist for
The National Publication for BPR
During 1996, I had my own column called Making the Connection which addressed the growing relationship between Internet technologies/online resources and the reengineering efforts of organizations.
The Washington DC Chapter
I am one of the founding officers of the DC chapter of the Internet Society.
DC-ISOC was formed to meet unique needs of Washington, DC-area Internet planners, builders, and users, and to help represent the Internet to the U.S. government. The Internet Society itself (headquartered in nearby Reston, VA), a global organization, has encouraged creation of DC-ISOC to allow the headquarters organization to maintain a global perspective, while the chapter meets the pressing need for Internet representation in the U.S. government's work to define the National Information Infrastructure (NII). You can read an Interview I gave about DCISOC soon after it was formed.
|Mindbank Consulting Group|
At Mindbank Consulting Group, I was Director, Business Development. My responsibilities included establishing new client accounts and expanding Mindbank's relationship with existing clients.
