I would scan the image in (at least 300pi) and save it as a bitmap. In illustrator, I would use the live trace option to convert it to vector art.

Also the Corel Trace feature (in CorelDraw, not in CorelPainter) works pretty well.

Have you every tried it?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

if it´s not such a complex image then just trace it manually.
