Hello again, New to Z professionals! Today, I want to talk about something that every emerging influencer should consider seriously: in-person collaboration opportunities.
The Importance of IRL Connections
We live in a digital world, but nothing can replace the human connection made through in-person interactions. Meeting face-to-face offers a level of engagement and understanding that can't be replicated online.
Growing as an Influencer
To grow as an influencer in the tech world, you need to invest time and energy into creating content, learning continuously, and building relationships. And yes, that includes real-world networking.
The Investment & Results
Growing a following doesn't happen overnight. It takes consistent effort and quality interactions. But the results? Absolutely worth it. More followers mean a broader reach and a stronger influence, leading to collaborations, partnerships, and even career opportunities.
Becoming an IBM Champion
If you're a New to Z professional looking to make an impact, aim to become an IBM Champion. Start by earning IBM Champion Badges to showcase your skills and contributions. It's a recognition that holds weight in our community and beyond.
Not sure where to begin? You're always welcome to reach out to me or any organizers of the New to IBM Z Community Hub. We're here to help, guide, and provide the resources you need to succeed.
So, are you ready to take your influence to the next level? Dive in, collaborate, and watch as doors of opportunities swing wide open for you.
