It’s that time of year again to talk about the IBM Champion program. I’ve blogged about it at least a couple times before in “how to thank someone”, and “thanking people that share” and I’m here to talk about again. Additional information about the program is here.
Actually this is one of my favorite blog posts I make. I love trying to find someone who is not an IBM Champion but shares great content and I think deserves to be an IBM Champion.
This year, for your consideration, I humbly suggest that Csaba Kiss deserves to be an IBM Champion. You’re supposed to look at contributions made in the last 18 months and Csaba has been pretty busy during that time. In addition to his videos and blogs he’s done presentations at MWLug 2016 and IBM Connect 2016 and maybe even some others I don’t know about.
His website is xpagexplorer.org. His Twitter is : @csakis.
His YouTube Channel is here. Since he’s so good at videos I am hoping to get him on NotesIn9 very soon.
If you agree please go to this form and nominate him. The form itself looks a little “daunting” to say the least. Choose IBM Collaboration solutions and then just fill in what you know. If you can think of someone else then please nominate that person. Keep in mind you can nominate more then one person and there are also other categories this year. If there’s someone out there that has helped you wether they are a current IBM Champion or not, please consider nominating them.
As I said before the nomination form is daunting. Even with minimal information it’s an investment of time. You do NOT need to nominate me. I would much rather you spend any time nominating someone else. I’ve been an IBM Champion since they opened the program. I think that was 2011 or something but I’m not sure. While I’ve always been honored to be associated with the great people involved in the program it’s not something I’ve ever actually tried to attain. My philosophy is I shared my content before I was a “Champion” and I’ll share my content if I’m not a “Champion”.
So since my content is “a sure thing” don’t waste time on me but instead nominate a deserving person today!
