Nominee Details

Please be sure you have permission from the person you are nominating to share information about them with the IBM Champions program.
Share what you know about the nominee's company. Select as many as required.
Please select one or more areas where the nominee has expertise and contributes to advocacy or community beyond the scope of their jobs.
Please list any IBM product(s), services, or offerings that the nominee works with, to the best of your knowledge.
Please describe in as much detail as possible why you are nominating this person for the IBM Champions program. Explain BOTH their expertise and their advocacy contributions.

What are the key activities, impact, and support the person has shown? Remember that the IBM Champions program:
  • Recognizes activity beyond the scope of a person's job
  • Is an individual recognition, not a company recognition - this is about what a person does not how much their company spends.
  • Recognizes contributions over the past year
We need one or more examples of the activities that the person has performed to consider them.

How we use your information

The IBM Champion nomination process collects and processes information about nominators (name, email) for the purpose of informing the nominee who nominated them and informing the nominator of the status of the nomination; from nominees, including business contact information; IBM ID and profile link; social media links; products and areas of expertise and interest; activities and links that support your nomination (such as blogs and articles, social media, user group membership, and speaking activity); and contact information for references who will support the nomination for evaluating nominations and selecting IBM Champions, for providing Champion benefits, for announcing Champions, for connecting Champions to opportunities, and for tracking Champion activities. Contact information will also be used to contact all nominees, nominators, and references regarding the status of the nominations and to request additional information for the selection process as needed.

For the purpose(s) set out above, IBM may provide your personal data: to the selection committee, to the IBM Community, on our Slack channel, to IBM legal, to Staples, to Ricoh, and to Acclaim.
