(Not So) Super Secret Discount Code for IBM Connect 2017

Okay, it’s a secret in that I’m not blogging it, but it’s not so secret, in that all you have to do is reach out to me ( @IamKathyBrown on most social media ) or any other IBM Champion of your choice, for a $100 discount to attend IBM Connect 2017.

If you read this in time, you can also listen to the ICS Community call this morning at 10AM ET (link), where they will discuss “What To Expect at IBM Connect”.  If you miss it, they usually record it.

I am once again pleased to say that I have been selected as an IBM Champion.  Congratulations to all of this year’s Champions, but a special congrats to the first-timers!  It’s exciting to see new people taking part in the community and being recognized for it!

Press Releases and Free Consulting

I’m fairly sure this is the first time my name has ever been mentioned in a press release.  I’m glad it was for a good reason.  : – )  http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/12/prweb12411402.htm

In the middle of the release is the announcement that PSC is going to give away a free week of consulting from one of our five IBM Champions.

PSC is proud to have five people selected as IBM ICS Champions for 2015. This is the second year in a row that PSC has the most ICS Champions of any organization worldwide. In celebration of this achievement, PSC is offering the opportunity to win a free week of consulting (40 hours), including travel costs, from one of our IBM Champions.

IBM Champion

I am so pleased to say that I have once again been selected as an IBM Champion.  This is my third year being selected and I am once again included in a great group of people.  See the rest of the Champions here.

From the post:

These individuals are non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge and help grow the community of professionals who are focused on social business and IBM Collaboration Solutions. IBM Champions spend a considerable amount of their own time, energy and resources on community efforts — organizing and leading user group events, answering questions in forums, contributing wiki articles and applications, publishing podcasts, sharing instructional videos and more!

I’ve always liked sharing what I know with others, it’s a great feeling and I usually learn more in the process.  None of us do what we do in order to become IBM Champions, we do it because we want to.  In the spirit of “help grow the community”, I’d like to throw out a challenge.  Are YOU sharing your knowledge?  You should.  I hear from many people that they don’t feel they know enough to share or aren’t experienced enough, but they are.  Everyone is.  You know more than the person who just started, so help them out.  You’ve probably gotten help in one form or another from someone in the community, now it’s your turn.
