February 1st, 2008 · Comments

With the World Finals firmly in site, IBM Sponsorship Executive Doug Heintzman highlights some the 100 teams representing 33 countries competing this year's Battle of the Brains. He also shared some insight into some of the cool things past contestants have accomplished at IBM and how this contest impacts students. We know a lot of contestants are thinking about their career after college. So, for a future podcast, we plan to invite one or two former contestants to offer tips about what to expect at the World Finals and beyond.

Also, for a future podcast, IBM is considering an interview with a team coach. If you have a coach you'd like to suggest, please email a 50-word description explaining how your coach helped bring out the best in you. Make sure you ask your coach if he or she is okay with the nomination before sending it in.
