So, again, why? Because there are so many interesting and exciting things happening!

By Andrea Brenholz, CEO / President |   Thu, Jan 17, 2019 @ 01:03 PM

The Golden Globe Awards Ceremony is always fun to watch, but I especially loved this year’s broadcast because of one incredibly powerful and inspiring moment. With millions of people watching, as Regina King accepted her award for best supporting actress, she chose to use this important moment to address a systemic issue felt in Hollywood and across the country. That issue is gender equality.

We’re all looking for guidance in our professional and personal lives these days, especially in an era that puts a lot of pressure on getting ahead and reaping the rewards of diligently following established best practices.

ATR’s Story: How We Became a Leading Minority Business Enterprise

By Andrea Brenholz, CEO / President |   Wed, Dec 19, 2018 @ 10:09 AM

What’s your story? Here at ATR, ours is one closely tied to the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) community. It’s been a long journey over the course of three decades to get to the level of success we enjoy today, but we’ve never forgotten where we came from. As a woman and minority executive in Silicon Valley, I believe it’s essential to reflect on our evolution as an MBE and look to the future with diversity in mind.

Don’t Talk Politics at Work

By Andrea Brenholz, CEO / President |   Mon, Dec 03, 2018 @ 08:23 AM

It seems obvious, but it may not be to everyone, and either way, it bears repeating: don’t talk politics at work. It has never been a good idea but in the current hyper-partisan environment of today, it’s a suggestion that you might want to consider making a rule.

Use What You Learned in College on The Job

By Andrea Brenholz, CEO / President |   Tue, Nov 06, 2018 @ 11:25 AM

So, you recently graduated! Congratulations!

Now, you’re at your new job. Congratulations again!

It’s all very exciting but also a bit nerve wracking. You’re a rookie and are just learning the ropes of your new job. Bosses understand this and don’t expect you to know everything, but of course you want to do the best job possible. What do you really know though? How do you make a difference right away? What do you do when you feel like you know nothing?

Take a breath. You know a lot more than you think you do. While you may not be an expert at your job yet or know your new industry or company inside out, you can take the skills you have from college and prior work experience and apply them wisely.

As The NBA Kicks Off: 4 Things Businesses Can Learn From a Championship Sports Team

By Andrea Brenholz, CEO / President |   Tue, Oct 16, 2018 @ 11:25 AM

ATR International is headquartered in Silicon Valley, which means those who work here have been fortunate to experience first-hand the amazing success the Golden State Warriors have had the last few years, including winning back-to-back NBA Championships. Full disclosure, I am a huge Warriors fan and ATR has also partnered with the Warriors Foundation on charitable endeavors.

That said, What I’m writing about here isn’t the result of bias or being a fan. Championship teams make people ask – how did they do it? And, can we do it too? I think that’s true of any champion.
