Connect Before the Conference

Stories from the Classroom

Business success now depends on the ability to gain insights from each and every interaction. During this discussion, Louis Richardso, Storyteller and Enthusiast for Social Business and Smarter Workforce at IBM, will preview the ways in which IBM is preparing the workforce of the future—including our work with several universities to help students apply their social-networking skills to the business world. Professor Peter Cardon from the University of Southern California will contribute to the conversation and reveal how he’s brought social business into the curriculum.
