The collaboration guru
I was at IBM’s South Bank office today, and bumped into my frolleague Phil Powell. Being a Spurs supporter, Phil cleverly dodged any football-related topics of conversation, and said that he enjoyed my video clips now showing on GuruOnline. Crikey, I’d forgotten about those… the recording session was in early July, and although I’d seen some of the clips since I hadn’t seen the finished web page which presents all twenty-eight videos. Apart from a few too many errrrs and errrrms I think it turned out quite well.
It was a long day of recording… we actually recorded the who thing twice, in two formats. The first (and unused) was an interview style. The format that has been used on GuruOnline is the short-snippet approach, answering a number of questions about collaboration. Note that product names aren’t used, it’s purely the IBM Lotus take on what’s important in collaboration.
…works for Microsoft as a Global Account Technology Strategist. In a former life he worked for the Lotus brand within IBM for many years. Married with one daughter and two dogs, lives in Camberley (Surrey, England), plays the guitar to a mediocre standard, and runs 10 kms and half marathons at an average speed. That’s it really.
