MWLUG 2012 IBM OGS Speaker

Louis Richardson, IBM Worldwide Social Business Evangelist
Louis serves as an IBM Worldwide Social Business Evangelist. In this role, he has the opportunity to meet with executives and business managers who have interest in leveraging social software in their organizations. Some are just starting out while others are well on their way. And in every case these conversations have provided Louis with a broad exposure to the practical and business relevant impact that social software is having on today's businesses. While the topic of social business can be complex, Louis' conversational and story-telling style relates well to non-technical audiences. He enjoys sharing his experiences and observations in conferences, workshops and through social communities and blogs.
