A friend, co-worker, neighbor, service people or a family member?
Heroes are ordinary people who have accomplished extraordinary things in life and in some way have touched your life.
The dedication and support of these people who volunteer their time and energy for ultimately the greater good of the product they work with on a daily basis is incredible.
Have you ever talked to or watch a leader facilitate a user group meeting? They do it all: organize agendas, communicate to the members, attain speakers, answer questions, motivate the membership/keep the drum beat going, prepare the meeting rooms, do the post meeting activities, and so much more. So much of these tasks could not be done without their drive and passion.
Picture: The Global Tivoli User Group (GTUG) council at Pulse 2010
These user group leaders who are ordinary people do accomplish extraordinary things for the user community and so TODAY I, as the Global Tivoli User Community Manager, salute you for all of your hard work and service to keep the user community one of the strongest user communities IBM software has the privileged of supporting.
See these "heroes" in action....attend one of the 30+ user group meetings taking place in the next 7 weeks. For more information on user groups check out the Global Tivoli User Community website.
Come collaborate with me.......Who are your heroes? What have they done that makes them your hero?
