Fast Start overview

This is not your average sales kickoff…

IBM Cloud Fast Start 2019 has been revamped to have a major focus on IBM Business Partners. We have added an Expo floor, so Business Partners can have a space to showcase their solutions and support to IBM sellers. We have also opened the doors to all tracks so Business Partners are able to improve existing skills or expand skills in to new offering areas.

Business Partners attending will have numerous opportunities to meet VPs, executives, IBM Garage, OM, or even host fireside chats and half hour lightening talks. There will be a Business Partner specific Main Tent to kick off the event on the first day, followed by various partner specific sessions, roundtables, and events. In between partners will have the freedom to attend any other sessions.

Why attend?

  • Immerse yourself in enablement and take proctored tests to achieve certifications
  • Learn Hundreds of labs will be delivered in a variety of styles
  • Network with IBM sellers, techs, executives, offering management, VPs, and other Business Partners
  • Attend Business Partner specific sessions that teach you how to transform, navigate, and build your business with IBM
  • Have fun!
