If you’re wondering whether it’s a safe bet to come to Las Vegas early, wonder no longer. When the 2013 IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference kicks off on Monday, February 25 at 11 a.m., we’re going to hit the ground running—so arrive early to take advantage of great content that’s being offered only on Monday. Here are some highlights of the content we have on tap:
Overview: Monday, February 25
Social Enterprise—Boot Camp and Beyond: Presented in two 90-minute sessions, the Social Enterprise Boot Camp gives you access to this popular IBM feature in a condensed, easy-to-digest format. Attend this session to find out how mastering social media can be used to improve awareness, build brand preference, boost marketing efforts and generate new revenue.
ISV/MSP Leadership Forum: Accelerating Business Through a Shared Agenda: This essential Leadership Forum will lay the foundation for the session materials that follow throughout the PartnerWorld Leadership Conference. Five IBM executives will each focus on a “hot topic” area—social business, mobile, smarter analytics, cloud and IBM PureSystems™—and the important role ISVs and MSPs play in each.
Women in Channels: An Inflection Point: This session is custom-tailored to give female Business Partners a new perspective on Smarter Planet and how the future is evolving. It’s also a perfect chance to share experiences with channel peers and gain a deeper understanding of the unique opportunities available to us.
The schedule for Monday concludes with a Welcome Reception starting at 6:30 p.m. It’ll be a great way to network, relax and unwind in an informal setting and prepare for the next three days of sessions, meetings, industry guest speakers and the big party with Train on Wednesday night.
So if you haven’t registered yet, what are you waiting for? From my behind-the-scenes perspective, the 2013 IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference is shaping up to be not only the most valuable event you can attend from a business perspective, but also the most fun you’ve had at a conference in years.
