Agenda – Boston 2015

The Heart of Business – Boston – October 6

We had a lot of fun at the Heart of Business event in Boston!

The event was held at the IBM Innovation Center in Cambridge. We had an excellent line-up of speakers – including IBM Social Evangelist and Storyteller, Louis Richardson, and seven IBM Business Partners.
We all learned, shared, and socialized about how Social Business Solutions can drive innovation, improve collaboration, and increase customer engagement.
