It's in those scenes that you ramp up to the rest of the film, cause you know that whomever gets selected for the team are the best of the best. The A-Team. The elite.
Well, that's what we're doing at IBM. We're putting together a team of our own, and we're looking for people like you?
Yes. Like you.
Here's the deal:
What's all that marketing speak mean?
Simply, the strong relationship that IBM has with you, our customers, is something that contributes to everyone's success.
Which is why I think this program is such a great opportunity for you and others like you. It helps put you in a position to elevate your thought leadership to your peers and at the same time helps IBM recognize some of our best customers.
Win. Win. And we didn't need to pull a Miss Daisy in the process.
What's Your Next Move?
Go to the IBM Champion website. Read more about the program. Watch the video. Check out some of the current members on the home page (there's a great filter option for the search field). Follow the action on Twitter (#ibmchampion).
There are champions for each and every one of our Software Group brands. And it's not just software, my old buddies over in Systems & Technology Group are also joining in on the fun.
Translation: if you are an expert around IBM products and the technologies that support them, then chances are there's a champion program waiting for you.
So, if you think you have what it takes, go to the nomination form and submit your application.
And while you're waiting for when we announce the winners to the nomination process, migh I suggest another great "putting the team together/heist" movie; Kelly's Heroes. What it lacks in IT-related thought leadership conversations, it more than makes up for in Clint Eastwood awesomeness.
