A Sam Palmisano Sighting

Samuel J. Palmisano doesn't make many public appearances, so you can bet the 2,000 IBM channel partners attending the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in Orlando last week were listening closely when the company chairman and CEO delivered a keynote address.

While IBM still retains some of its corporate, blue-suited image, Palmisano was anything but buttoned down as he delivered a speech that was at times passionate and boisterous, his voice rising as he detailed IBM's strategic direction and urged channel partners to come along for the ride.
