Passing the Baton


Time to pass the baton to a new team of leaders.

Starting January 8th, The Omaha Career Networking group will be under new leadership. All three people are alumni of the group, which means they have all been in your shoes, wore the t-shirt, been in career transition.

Let me introduce the new OCN Team in alphabetical order:

Ryan Bergh

An insightful and result-driven Sales Leader and Operations Manager, Ryan offers expertise in procedural improvements, strategy and innovation expertise, revenue growth, organizational planning and turnaround of underperforming business and sales operations.

He delivers effective business/sales leadership utilizing efficient solutions delivery and strategic planning, a highly competitive mindset and ability to solidify client relations and retention.

Frank Ferrante

Frank has a master’s degree and is a certified educational specialist with 18 graduate hours in counseling/ teaching and 12 years of experience marketing, selling, educating, teaching, directing, managing, supervising, presenting, facilitating, advising, writing, consulting, tutoring, and counseling.

He currently works as a customer service specialist, focusing his efforts on win/win results oriented problem resolutions with the application of the four “Fish Philosophy principles such as: 1). Play, 2). Be There, 3). Make Someone’s Day, and 4). Choose Your Attitude.”

Joe Poteat

Joe is an experienced software developer with a demonstrated history of working in the telecommunications industry. Skilled in Databases, Data Center, Management, System Deployment, Software Quality Assurance and Software Documentation. Strong business development professional.

All three bring special talents and experiences to the ministry. All have a heart to serve God in His ministry to help people in career transition.

Change in meetings and location

Please note the meetings will take place on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month same times 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The location has also changed to Westside Church, 15050 West Dodge Road.

I will continue to serve on occasion as a speaker and a resource for the team to continue this ministry.

Something I learned as a scout leader and trainer, there comes a time not to deny someone else the pleasure of volunteer. I know these three will carry on the good work until it will time for someone new to come along and take the baton and run with it.
