While Chris really wanted to be at Lotusphere 2012 he was unable to attend due to his participation in the Grace Foursquare 2012 Haiti Mission Trip focusing on the Torcelle orphanage construction.

Chris Lema: Getting the first two minutes of your talk right
Tue, Jul 15th 2014 7:59p   Bruce Elgort
As with anything, writing or speaking is something you get better at over time. The more you do it, the calmer you get, the more muscle memory you have, and ultimately, the faster you can get things done. But when it comes to speaking, I notice that there are people who’ve been speaking for years and they continue to make a classic mistake every time they start a talk. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not a horrible mistake. But it’s done so often, by so many people, that it’s easy to not t [read] Keywords: twitter

Veteran Blogger Brill Picked to Lead IBM’s Social Business Transformation
Mon, Jul 7th 2014 6:12p   Bruce Elgort
In his 2013 book, Opting In, Ed Brill recalls the time he was reprimanded by IBM corporate communications in 2003 for identifying an employee by name in a blog post. “We don’t have celebrities at IBM,” the PR rep told him. How times have changed. Brill’s elevation last month to the corporate role of Vice President of Social Business Transformation shows how far IBM has come in shedding its old blue-suite image in favor of one that applauds individuality. Brill and his team will tackle t [read] Keywords: ibm lotus blogger blogging facebook
