It was in this background that the 3rd week
of October turned out to be a ‘networking’ week for me, attending a
social-networking workshop and an interactive evening gathering with my fellow IBMers.
The workshop was about social-networking through IBM Lotus® Connections, a
robust collaboration software that empowers people to connect, collaborate, and
innovate while optimizing the way they work. It was a great learning experience
and I did install some cool and faster tools which I’ve been happily using
since then :-)
Now, the icing on the cake! The networking part! Yes, networking is very important in any job role/any business. The workshop not only gave me the opportunity to network with my peers from various departments but also raise the visibility of my work. Hence, with the week, just passed, I’m feeling richer by a network of contacts which I’m sure will be a great help in performing my job role :-)
A note for you; You can attend Pulse 2011 and network with your peers from
across your industry.
