At this ONLINE gathering of IBMers past and present, Ron Glover joined us to share from his career journey and to offer insight about the role of leadership and diversity at this time of challenge, crisis, and great opportunity.


It came from Sam Palmisano's bold vision of "A SMARTER PLANET: The Next Leadership Agenda" which he shared in his address to the Council on Foreign Relations in NYC. "...a period of discontinuity is, for those with courage and vision, a period of opportunity." He defined current realities for leaders and innovators, painting a vivid picture of a SMARTER PLANET. At our online gathering, we explored what we all need to do to be one of those leaders that will "change the game."

What happens when leaders and innovators gather ONLINE?
We all discovered the value once again!
