(Fwd) [odnet] Count Down to Collaborate 99! LO22943

Fri, 22 Oct 1999 00:57:47 -0500

I was asked to distribute this information. It sounds interesting, since
it's a virtual conference with some very serious folks. (I have no
association with this conference).


Just 10 days left to register for Collaborate 99!

Last year's Collaborate '98 last year was a remarkable gathering of over
450 people from 19 countries. This year's program promises an exciting
reunion! We had such an amazing time together last year we hope you will
attend again and tell your friends and colleagues!

This year we are adding streaming video presentations! Our featured
speaker will be Dee Hock, Founder of Visa, International, and The Chaordic
Alliance, who will frame the event with a video presentation each week
including insights from his soon to be released book, "Birth of the
Chaordic Age".

Join Dee and an impressive line up of noted industry leaders for a fully
interactive exploration of Organizations of the Future.

Our keynoters are:
-- Art Kleiner, writer: The Dance of Change; The Age of
Heretics (week one)
-- Jessica Lipnack and Jeffrey Stamps, The Networking
Institute (week two)
-- John Adams, Eartheart Enterprises (week three.)
