I am delighted to share that I have again been selected for the IBM Champions program. I was an IBM Champion in 2011, and I quite enjoyed the increased access to IBM engineers and executives that came as a result. Unfortunately, I wasn’t very participatory in the program itself.
I’m hoping to change that this year by getting more involved with IBM’s initiatives in this program. And the very first instance of that will be at ConnectED 2015. I hadn’t decided for sure whether to attend, but having the honor of being a Champion means that I will definitely go and hopefully share some great ideas (and drinks) with the community.
Congratulations to the class of 2015. I’m pleased to note that the OpenNTF.org Board of Directors has 6 IBM Champions on it now!
