Empower influencers with the right conversation and relevant facts by offering computing talking points and names of advocates they can call upon.


Broaden allies in other fields to raise the social status of computing by sharing their personal stories of how computing has enabled them to do their jobs better.


Leverage highly respected opinion leaders to spread messages of computing opportunities - ppt and videos for their speaking engagments, panel sessions and blogs


Execute an interactive marketing campaign including fact sheets, ppt, placements in magazines, news articles and on-line, speaking engagements within the community, myth busting posters, personal profiles.
