IBM Business Partner Leadership Conference – April 23, 2008

I just completed registration for the IBM Business Partner Leadership Conference. This is a new invitation-only conference being held this year in Los Angeles from Wednesday, April 30th through Friday, May 2nd. I’m looking forward to renewing my IBM contacts “in person” versus the “virtual” meetings that have become such a fixture of today’s business world. If you’re going to be there, please send me an email and let’s catch up. If not, check out my blog next week for my personal insights.

(From the IBM website)
The conference will bring together executives from IBM Business Partner firms around the world, IBM senior-level executives, and recognized leaders from across business and industry, renowned academics, and many others. Ravi Marwaha, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners, will kick off the conference at an afternoon General Session on Wednesday, April 30th in the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.Recently announced speakers include:

  • IBM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Sam Palmisano
  • IBM Executive Vice President Nick Donofrio
  • Google Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Eric Schmidt
  • Dr. Warren Bennis, one of the world’s foremost authorities on leadership
  • Dr. Dan Esty, an acclaimed author and environmentalist
  • Frank Gens, senior vice president, Research, IDC
  • Harvey Koeppel, executive director of the Center for CIO Leadership

In addition to General Sessions in the Nokia Theatre, geography and business unit breakouts will be held in the Los Angeles Convention Center adjacent to the theatre.Chief decision makers from firms around the world are invited to attend the conference and contribute to a dialogue covering topical issues, trends, strategic directions and opportunities.
