Back in February 2009, I attended my first Pulse conference and it was a memorable experience. I left Las Vegas understanding why Pulse is considered the premier service management conference. The conference from start to finish provides an amazing venue that fosters interactive dialogue between IBMers, customers, and other industry experts. The numerous customer speakers and birds of a feather sessions were extremely valuable in helping me to identify other individuals who shared my passion and interest in energy management.
With 2010 just around the corner, I am already looking forward to participating in my second Pulse conference. The event returns to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on February 21-23 and I have been told that it will have an even greater emphasis on education and customer experience. This year’s curriculum will again include sessions that will focus on energy efficiency and will bring together IBM experts, customers, partners, and analysts to share their perspective and personal experiences. I encourage everyone who attends Pulse to review the sessions focused on Energy Efficiency and consider attending at least one of these 'green electives'. Based on the my experience last year, the information and insight shared in these sessions is extremely practical and will help you walk away with tactical ideas for how you can support your company's broader sustainability initiatives and objectives.
I will post additional details regarding the energy efficiency sessions as the curriculum is finalized. In the interim, please do not hesitate to post or send me ideas through this blog for topics or potential speakers that you would like to see at this years event.
I look forward to meeting many of you at Pulse 2010.
