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.

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:
