Yesterday I gave an overview of F5 to a group of new employees.  I always enjoy doing these sessions.  Typically the group has been through all the necessary but not so sexy topics of how to navigate the internal HR systems, benefits, employee stock purchase program, legal agreements and the like before my portion comes up on the agenda.

When I get to address the group, my goal is to get people's faces to light up and make them really feel the same enthusiasm for the company and our market opportunity that I feel.

Hopefully people in the session walked out of the room with some of that enthusiasm. I'll have to look at their evaluation forms to be sure that I did my part effectively!
