The collaboration guru
I was at IBM's South Bank office today, and bumped into my frolleague Phil Powell.…
It seems that my good friend and Domino / Blackberry expert Mike Smith (of The Turtle Partnership) has lined himself up with a busy week in September. For the first three day of the week commencing 15th September, Mike is busy as one of the chief organisers of Collaboration University in London. For the unenlightened, Collaboration University is an absolutely first class education event covering IBM Lotus Sametime, Lotus Quickr (note, with a lowercase ‘r’) and making it’s debut this year, Lotus Connections. As in previous years, there’s a host of great speakers, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
After three days of hard graft Mike should be putting his feet up, but it seems he’s a sucker for punishment. Mike has volunteered to be on the organising commitee of UKLUG (that’s the UK Lotus User Group), and the two day event in London follows straight on from Collaboration University. Warren Elsmore, task-master that he is, has already got Mike working on a rather important part of UKLUG (I’ll say no more). Note that the UKLUG event is spread over two days this year, and we’re hoping for around two hundred and fifty attendees. Registration is open now. I hope to see you there, and if you see a tall guy looking happy but a bit worn out… go easy on Mike, he’ll have had a busy week.
