The Platinum sponsor always gets a highlight during the OGS - remember Blackberry with the Playbook? Sometimes this was a partner in a panel (oh dear) or something else. And even the Blackberry Playbook 'ad' had a 'visit us at booth xxx' on the screen. Maybe the lack of technical content is what made the Actiance part ring out more directly for you. Not sure. 
I always considered the annual IBM lovefest in Orlando in January as "Lotusphere" but after last week it is pretty clear it IBM Connect ain't no Lotusphere. The OGS (The Bad): Who are you talking to? Short Version: I...

+John Head " may feel..." is not putting words in your mouth.  John, reading comprehension.  Please.

Sounds like we agree on the subtlety thing.

PSC is actually one of the most honorable companies I've ever seen in this business.  I mean that 100%.  I was only using it as the example because I know, they, and by that, I assumed you, actually bear sponsorship costs.  Frankly, if you had stood up there and said "...visit us at booth whatever..." that would have been way less offensive simply because of you and your peeps' community involvement.  For me there is a bit of a rolling scale there.

Honored to be a 2014 IBM Champion!

Getting the email this morning that I was accepted as an 2014 IBM Champion. It is both an honor and a challenge. Being an IBM Champion is about representing the IBM Collaboration Services in the wild as best as you can. Thanks for those that nominated me.

Are you making these social media mistakes?

Social Media for business isn't exactly easy. There really is an art form to creating a presence on social networks that works for a business instead of against a business. And it's made more complicated by the fact that every business and how they use social media needs to be unique. You can't just replicate what other businesses are doing.

And yet many do, and many make a lot of other mistakes. +Jeremy Smith has focused on 5 mistakes that businesses are making every day, that are really hurting their ability to effectively leverage social media. Can you guess what some of them are?

Find out more: 

Would you agree that most social media mistakes boil down to these five issues?

news is relative - but I don't think you can turn it off. you can't live in a bubble that the world is shiney and perfect. But you can filter what you do see and read

Thanks for the comment. I do agree, which is why I haven't turned it all off. I'm just trying to balance it with the positive as well, because I do think there is more good than there is bad out there. It is hard to remember that when watching the news.

I was honored to be asked to speak at The Sales Association Midwest 2013 conference in November. The event was focused on sales best practices, tools, and techniques for sales organizations and individuals. It was a great experience for me - especially since it was a brand new audience and community. Looking forward to giving this presentation more in 2014!  Click through to my blog for the presentation.
