pardon the interruption @ IBM Connect 2013

I have the pleasure of working with many creative and talented individuals. And it’s my pleasure to be able to join a couple of my favorites for a session at IBM Connect 2013.

Last year I submitted a similar session titled “A manager, an ambassador and an evangelist walk into a bar” (Benitez is a product manager, Suarez is a Blue IQ Ambassador and I’m a Social Business Evangelist). Anyway, I think I got a bit too creative for those evaluating sessions. This year we toned it down and bit and our session was accepted.

I’m a big fan of keeping it simple. Albert Einstein is quoted “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” I also love Ernest Hemingway’s concept of 6-word stories.

So with that in mind, we’re going to take 12-14 topics/questions and give each one 3 minutes (1 minute from each of us)…so it’s going to be fast paced and on-topic (no time for rambling).

However, the key to this session is you. The entire content is based on your suggested topics. If you have a question or a topic you’d like to hear our opinions on, tweet them using #PTIsocialBiz. We will collect these up to the day before the session and select the top dozen or so. If you see one already tweeted that you like, please retweet it. For us, that’s another vote for the topic or question.

Thanks in advance for you input and participation. And if you’re coming to IBM Connect 2013, be sure to put Session INV204 on your list of sessions. It’s scheduled to be on Tuesday afternoon, 5:30-6:30 in Macaw 2.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you there.
