Novell BrainShare 2010
Planning for Continued Success

With the cancelation of Novell BrainShare 2009 comes a unique opportunity to take a step back and evaluate the conference in its entirety. The opportunities to bring BrainShare back in 2010 are endless. With basically a clean slate, the Advisory Board can have a positive effect on the BrainShare conference going forward. Several options exist:
1). Plan and execute BrainShare in 2010 based on its history and success – status quo
2). Plan and execute BrainShare in 2010 based on its history and success, but in a different city
3). Recreate the BrainShare experience – all new event!
Novell is seeking a group of individuals who would like to be a part of the Advisory Board. This group will operate under NDA and on a very tight timeline – decisions must be finalized by June 19, 2009.

While the Advisory Board will be expected to function as a unified team, we will need members with focus and/or experience in the following areas:
· Content / Technical Sessions
· Keynotes
· Marketing and Audience Acquisition
· Budget
· Technology Lab
· Partners / Exhibitors / Sponsorships
· Event Technology (Registration, Social Networking (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.), etc.)
· Extracurricular Activities (Daytime and Evening Events or Activities)

Once formed, the Advisory Board will quickly create a plan and proposal for Novell Executives for BrainShare 2010. As mentioned above, we have a clean slate to begin with. All suggestions will be considered. A private Facebook Group (or similar site) will be created so that members can share ideas, thoughts, etc. and allow us to make decisions in real-time. Advisory Board members will be expected to join at least one or two online meetings.

Advisory Board members will be given free conference registration plus hotel accommodations to BrainShare 2010. Public acknowledgement/credit will be given on

If you are interested in joining the BrainShare 2010 Advisory Board, please complete the Application Form found at by April 30, 2009. If you have questions feel free to contact Mike Morgan at
