IBM announced the nominations for IBM Champions 2017 and I’m very happy to say that I was nominated.
It’s wonderful to have this sort of recognition and suddenly being part of a group who have made huge contributions to the IBM ICS Community of the years is humbling.
I strongly suspect that my nomination is linked to my co-organising the Swiss Notes User Group, so I’d like to mention at this point my co-conspirators, without whose work SNoUG wouldn’t happen:
Diana Leuenberger, Susanne Schugg and Helmut Sproll
And also many thanks to those that have contributed behind the scenes to make SNoUG a success – I think in particular here of Paul Harrison, with his wonderful AgendaWALL and AgendaPAD, as well as the very talented LDC Via Group, who help me whenever I’m stuck.
I’d also proud of strengthening the Swiss IBM Champions group – showing that plucky little Switzerland can pack a good punch!
