Alpha UMi Grand Opening

Dr. Carrie Root, CEO, and visionary for Alpha UMi proudly cut the grand opening ribbon last Thursday surrounded by family, friends, and dignitaries. Dr. Root and her staff have diligently worked on the 5G™ Power Skills product for almost two years and officially rolled out a 25-competency course workshop for the dimensionally diverse, multi-generational workforce that is sweeping the nation.

Dr. Root, an underwater acoustical engineer by trade, began with a vision of developing a set of skills that will help employers and employees better communicate across the five generation workforce thus providing a more robust bottom line for organizations and increased career sustainability for the individual.

Alpha UMi and Keynote Speaker, CAPT (ret) Winston Scott


I was fortunate to enjoy a conversation with CAPT (ret) Winston Scott, USN, and NASA Astronaut, serving as Mission Specialist on STS-72 and -87 following the President's reception at yesterday's AFC (Association of Florida Colleges) conference held at Innisbrook. Preferring to be addressed as just 'Winston', he gave a rousing keynote address this morning on Leadership and Space.

Happy New Year


The team at Alpha UMi/5G Matrix wishes everyone a happy, healthful, successful 2017! We are very excited about the initiatives we have in the pipeline for the year. Look for major product and services launches coming in the first quarter and throughout '17. 

We all had the opportunity to attend I/ITSEC at the end of 2016. The training and simulation that was on display there was awe-inspiring and thought-provoking. If any of you have the opportunity to walk the I/ITSEC exhibit floor, it is truly amazing. We did things like, fly like a bird in a virtual simulator, fly helicopters, fly jets,  shoot home intruders with laser guns, and meet the leaders in modeling, simulation and training. This inspired many ideas for future product development for 5G Matrix.
