Take the InterConnect celebrity challenge

Share this post:

As I mentioned in my last blog, I’m the person you want to talk to if you’re looking for the inside scoop on finding fun at InterConnect. I’ve already shared where you can find beer, enjoy some video games and even hang out with Wayne Brady. Now, I want to give you the inside scoop on a very famous guest.

Let me put it this way.

What if I told you  one of the most talented rappers in history, one of the most hilarious comedic actors in the world and one of the biggest dramatic actors ever was going to InterConnect? What if I told you this one person had broken box office records, won Grammys and been nominated for Academy Awards? Sounds like someone who understands how to redefine possible, doesn’t it?

Drumroll please…

Will Smith will be joining us at InterConnect.

With a resume like this one, Will Smith knows better than just about anyone what it means to redefine yourself. It wasn’t enough to succeed with his music, he had to push himself by becoming a comedic icon. It wasn’t enough to have a list of hit TV and film comedies under his belt, he had to branch out to become one of the most successful and beloved dramatic actors in the world.

Not only is Will Smith a talented performer, but he also calls to mind a valuable business lesson. To remain culturally important and continue to give the most to your customers and fans, it’s essential to explore, challenge and redefine. If Will Smith can go from hit rapper, to hilarious agent in Men in Black, to the inspiring embodiment of the American dream in The Pursuit of Happyness, your business can redefine itself too.

Will Smith reminds us that the ability to redefine yourself is not only an asset. It is essential to thriving at the highest level. Be sure to hear him share his thoughts on innovation and redefinition — only at IBM InterConnect.
