Are you the underdog of your industry? Are you in the collaboration or communication/messaging space? Do your teams need help selling against the competition? Is your company stuck in silos and not sharing information? I help companies prepare for the unknown by expanding on their business benefits, not their technical ones, for their potential customers. I am a technology evangelist recognized by IBM Redboks as a Thought Leader. I believe in collaboration and sharing of information and encourage everyone to do the same for the benefit of your organization. I am a collaboration evangelist recognized by IBM for the last 3 years as an IBM Champion. While I deliver projects to my customers I also spend my time managing them and their expectations while looking for potential sales opportunities. I am available as a Speaker or Trainer and continue to speak at events world wide on technology, social media adoption and competitive sales. Some recent sessions have been at SugarCon (SugarCRM), IBM Connect, MidWest Lotus User Group, Social Connections 7 and 8 and many more local and regional events.
