There is a new type of session at Lotusphere this year and the speaker is….. you!
Spark Ideas is session in which we bring together a group of people to discuss what inspires us. Lead by Kristen Lauria, Vice President Marketing for IBM Social Business, a group of speakers will share their experiences, inspiration, challenges, etc., during a compilation of five minute talks.
Want to participate? There’s still time to submit your abstract! The topic can be anything that you feel is relevant from how you were inspired by your math teacher to go into computing, a unique personal experience or story, how you juggle your busy job and coaching little league soccer, or describing your hobby or family project. Whatever you think would inspire your colleagues and friends in the room!
So don’t hesitate if you feel you’ve got something to contribute.
How?? To sign up, simply send your abstract (maximum 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short bio telling us who you are.
But be quick because time is running out! Submit your abstract by December 19, 2011. Final selection of abstracts will be made public in the beginning of January.
We hope to see you in January in Orlando, let’s Spark!
