MWLUG 2012 IBM OGS Speaker
Louis Richardson, IBM Worldwide Social
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.
