If only people were willing to think...

By now, you've heard about Think - the new conference to be held in March 2018. This conference will be the opportunity to explore all IBM tech
As you might imagine, however, if all the sessions were reproduced it would result in (literally) 8000 sessions and nobody would see anything.
So. That means that there will be fewer sessions, strategically selected. And that's a good thing. You will attend more sessions with more ideas that are new to you. If you present a session, you will have less competition for engaged attendees. The user group events you also support will have more need for sessions that weren't presented at the IBM event.
Submit your session
On the back end, I'll be sending a list of all IBM Champions to the IBMers who are selecting speakers and putting the conference together, along with your areas of expertise AND I'll be presenting to them on the IBM Champion program to them, so that they know who you are and why you bring value to the conference.
Other actions I suggest: Of course, start planning your travel and time at the conference. In addition, think about what you'd like to see for IBM Champions at the conference and start sharing that with Libby and the Champion team via comments below or email or Slack or... smoke signal if you're stuck in a flood like me!
Call for speakers will close
If you have questions or need to strategize, reach out to Libby or another member of the Champion team!
