Whether you're a business leader who can talk strategy and show how your solution addresses a basic or complex challenge or you have a penchant for the technical, there is an audience who wants to hear from you at Connect 2014.
Last year more than 350 top-notch speakers—clients, partners, and industry experts—shared their business stories and technical expertise with thousands of our attendees, resulting in the highest session ratings in the history of the conference.
While the bar is set high, the Connect team is determined to deliver an outstanding agenda in January focused on "Energizing Life's Work," empowering employees and clients to drive real business results.
Do you have an idea you’d like to share? Are you considering submitting an abstract? I was planning on sharing some tips on best practices, until I read this blog by Gabriella Davis, Technical Director, Turtle Partnership and IBM Champion. Gabriella has presented at numerous conferences and shares her wealth of experience including the obvious – write a decent abstract; and the less obvious – submit to the right track.
(I’m telling you – you should read her blog before you write your abstract!)
Why you should submit an abstract
Once again, Gabriella says it best.
How to submit
Think of a great topic. Write an even greater abstract. Visit the Call for Abstract page and follow the link for submitting your proposal. And then, as @MartinInAction Tweeted this morning, "...now fingers crossed!"
