One of the most enjoyable parts of my day job is working with IBM Lotus salespeople and business partners on learning the Notes/Domino business.  IBM presents a series of in-depth "Top Gun" training classes for sellers:

IBM Top Gun training is designed to increase sales, solutions, competitive and technical skills for I/T Industry professionals. The program uses a popular "Top Gun" format involving unique class themes, stimulating lectures, stand-up exercises, hands-on labs, quizzes, and product demonstrations.

Top Gun training is for sales and solution specialists, IBM Business Partners, eSM's, client reps, telemarketing personnel or anyone who spends a significant amount of their time selling, marketing, and supporting IBM eServer, TotalStorage and Software products and solutions.
Specifically for Lotus brand Top Gun, several classes are upcoming:

Jul 7-11, 2008: London, England
Jul 21-25, 2008: Sao Paulo, Brazil
Aug 4-8, 2008: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Oct 6-10, 2008: Europe (Brussels or Madrid)
Oct 13-17, 2008: Dallas, Texas


I or someone from my team presents at each of these.  I am scheduled to be at the São Paolo class in July, and am currently working to add customer meetings or other stops to the trip to Brasil / Latin America.  Hope to see some of you there!
