"I couldn't believe that I won again," says Spearman. "But win or lose, being here is a great experience. Before the competition, I thought BICSI was just a training organization, but through these conferences I've learned BICSI is more about career development and helping people grow. Since the last competition, I was promoted from foreman to supervisor, and now I oversee Vision Technology's Virginia office operations."
