Subject Impress your boss: Cocoon success stories
Date Mon, 13 Sep 2004 17:11:25 GMT
This is the title of my upcoming presentation at the next Cocoon 
GetTogether in Gent ( This isn't 
going to be the usual presentation, and I need your help to make it 

The idea is to have on stage a group of 6 to 10 speakers presenting 
their successful Cocoon projects. No more than 5-6 slides each, 
following a common template (I'll set up a Wiki page soonish), no more 
than 5-8 minutes each, pure "lighting talk" style.

Now, since I anticipate some of your concerns, here is some specific 

1. while we would of course just love to hear company names, you don't 
have to provide them if you have privacy issues. Stating something 
along the lines of "company working in the XXX field, with n employees 
and y turnover" would be more than enough. But if you are able to 
convince your boss/customer to come out from the shadows, please do!

2. you don't have to come to Gent if you can't (but of course you're 
most welcome). I'm willing to be your proxy if you're far away or just 
have no time: all you'll have to do is work through a very short 
interview I'll send you, maybe answer a 10 minutes phone call if that's 
needed, and I'll take care of the rest. I'm willing to take care of the 
rest *even* if you do come on stage, so lack of time is not a valid 
excuse. And of course, keep in mind that being on stage is much nicer. 

So, if you were successful with Cocoon, it's time for you to give 
something back to our community. It's stage time, come and speak up!

(and, of course, you're welcome to contact me privately about all this)
