There are now only 12 days to go until the first cross software event for IBM UKI - Business Connect 2013! I am leading Team Social on the day, which means every brand at the event will be active on a range of social channels and we hope that you will all join us in getting Social!! Make sure you don't miss out by registering here now -http://bit.ly/BCSOCIAL.
The day will be packed full of interesting and informative sessions, with the hot topics being Social Business (the brand I work for!) Mobile, Smarter Analytics & Big Data, Smarter Commerce, Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure and Security - you can see video invites from a few of the UKI executives of these topics here -http://bit.ly/1b8feYy.

Our main Twitter handle for the day is @ibmsoftwareuk - so make sure you follow us there for the all the key moments and quotes throughout the day.
I also want to encourage everyone to get involved on Vivastream - http://www.vivastream.com/events/ibmimt-businessconnect-uk which we will be using for the first time at an IBM UK event. Vivastream will allow people to network more effectively before, during and after the event. The platform tells you "Who to Meet" based on your interests, profile, and skills, and helps you connect and interact with other like-minded peers and experts. You can register for Vivastream and participate even if you are not able to attend on the day.
Remember there is still time to register here -http://bit.ly/BCSOCIAL. You can join in the conversation on the day using #IBMBCUKI. If you would like to know more, feel free to tweet me @RSwindell.
If you can't attend on the day, I would love to hear what you think of the sessions that are being live streamed from the event (http://www.livestream.com/ibmuk) via the social channels mentioned above. You can always ask us a question via Twitter using #IBMBCUKI and we will do our best to get it answered during the day - hopefully via the live stream!
But for those that can attend, I look forward to meeting you on the day!
