Hello from the 48th floor of the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. What a truly amazing view of the New York City skyline from this location. Today was an incredibly wonderful, albeit hectic day. While it was filled with both planned and unplanned meetings, I knew it was going to be a great day by the time I met with the participants of the opening keynote panel I was moderating at the Mobile Business Conference at Interop.
I am now back home from the Mobile Enterprise Executive Summit that was held in Los Angeles last week. I'm clearly not as young as I used to be, because taking a two day trip to the west coast now takes a toll on me in a way it wouldn't have 10 years ago when I was travelling all across Europe every month.
For those of you who missed the event, the "net net" is that it was a great event. Great networking, even better content and for me personally, a truly entertaining golf scramble (our group barely knew which end of the club to hold, but I digress). The opening keynote of the event, however, truly reminded me (and everyone attending) why enterprise mobility matters today.
Hello from beautiful and sunny Los Angeles. I arrived here today, making my 6am flight by the skin of my teeth. For the next couple of days, I'm going to *try* to share some of the things I will be learning and witnessing here. I just got back from the Editorial Advsiory Board meeting - part of my duties as an advisory board member - and I can say that it was a very good meeting. There are a bunch of new things that the magazine will be doing in the coming months, as well as in 2010 that I think will help bring a lot of awareness to the importance of and challenges with enterprise mobility.
Until then, if you read this blog and are attending the event, then let's make sure to connect!
Here's a quick note to let you know I will be participating in a webinar next week on key steps for developing a winning enterprise mobility strategy. I'll be doing this with my good friends at Tangoe. If interested, you can register here.
So I am finally back home after a two-week stint of living out of a suitcase. Wow, I can't think of anything more fun than taking a couple of red eyes, as well as losing luggage. Oh wait, watching paint dry would be more fun. Actually, the travels were very productive and interesting. When I was at Interop, participating at the Mobile Business Expo, I had among other things, the pleasure to moderate a panel on REAL WORLD trends in enterprise mobility.
Shameless plug time. I am off to Las Vegas tomorrow morning to attend the Mobile Business Expo at Interop. The event will take place between Tuesday and Thursday. If you're planning on attending, drop me a line!
I'll be moderating two panels - one on enterprise mobility strategy and one on mobile browsers. I'll also be participating on a panel regarding mobile application development.
No, I am not turning this into a Twitter-esque kind of thing. The presentations I did today in Phoenix were well received. Some great feedback and questions came out of it. Now I am off to Manhattan for another event. I love red eyes...
Greetings from 35,000 ft above somewhere as I make my way to Phoenix for my speaking engagement. My trip started off on the right note when the flight to Chicago was delayed 30 minutes with no ETA as to when we would actually be taking off. Given that I have to be in Phoenix this afternoon, I quickly changed my ticket to go through Denver. Ah, the Friendly Skies. The good news is, I now have three hours to reflect upon my favorite topic in the whole wide world – enterprise mobility. (While doing the proof reading, I realized this is a long entry. You have been warned)
Just a quick 6.30am post to let you all know I am on my way to speak at the Ingram Micro Partner Event in Phoenix tomorrow and then on my way to a conference in Manhattan after that. I'll be posting from Phoenix though.
