The end of January is quickly approaching and my excitement builds as we inch closer to the beginning of one of my favorite conferences of the year, IBM Connect! It’s a few special days filled with a wealth of information, meaningful conversations, and connections (no pun intended).
I’m fascinated with the advancements in collaborative technology, and passionate about how work cultures can evolve and organizations can thrive through the process of its consideration and usage. Each year I anticipate hearing our customers’ unique success stories, in addition to hearing what’s new & coming down the pipeline for our enterprise social solutions. I’m also thrilled to taste the additional pretzel cookie with the elusive new ingredient, AND the roller coasters at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.
This year we’ll help bring another realm to life at IBM Connect – on social media! Our social amplification team is looking forward to keeping our Connect family in-tune to all that’s happening around the conference (in addition to IBMgo livestreaming during the opening general session). We’ll attend as many sessions as we can to help bring you those “quotable nuggets” on Twitter, short video highlights, and a Twitter Chat (Live from Orlando) you can join on “The Future of Work: 2016 Enterprise Social Trends”. You can join and stay in the conversation on Twitter by following us @IBMConnect and using #IBMConnect in your tweets and posts. We are socially listening and do provide your feedback to our events team to ensure we provide a quality conference experience.
If you’re there you’ll probably spot me running about, as I’ll show my brand spirit in YELLOW. When you see me, please say hello. Here’s to another year of fun and excitement – See you in Orlando!
