After a refreshingly normal-paced summer, September looks to be quite a busy month.  Here's what's on my calendar at the moment:

  • September 9 -- an executive breakfast in Philadelphia; invitation only.  I had hoped to meet with the South Jersey Lotus user group during that trip, but their meeting schedule and mine didn't match up.  Another time.
  • September 18/19 -- UK Lotus User Group.  I'll be keynoting the UKLUG event, and visiting London-area customers on the day prior as well as possibly the afternoon of the 18th.  I will be in Europe almost the whole week of 15 September (calendar week 38), so if you've got an opportunity for me to add a customer meeting on the 16th or 19th (depending on time/location), let me know.  (Thanks for the date catch, Steven)
  • September 22-24 -- Lotus Leadership Alliance (LoLA); invitation only.  This is an interesting new event on the Lotus brand calendar, bringing together the Lotus Global Customer Partnership Council, Lotus Enterprise Customer Support Council, and a selected group of worldwide Lotus customers and prospects.  I've been hesitant to write about it because of the invitation-only nature of the event -- no, I can't get your company on the invite list -- but the reality is, it's going to be an interesting event and I'm sure to be blogging some of the discussion.  My purpose in attending?  I'm leading a variation of the "selling Notes/Domino internally" and competitive presentations from over the last few years....but with a twist.  The format will be more roundtable than presentation, and the participants will include key Lotus brand executives from marketing and other areas.

There's probably another customer meeting or two that I've forgotten... looking forward to seeing so many of you at these various events next month!
