Former General Electric poohbah, author, and Red Sox fan Jack Welch will take center stage at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans. In July.
First question: Will celeb wife and sometimes-co-author Suzy Wetlauffer Welch be on hand as well, signing copies of her book 10-10-10? This is the tome that counsels everyone to think of every decision in terms of what it will mean to them in ten minutes, ten months and ten years. Talk about high concept. Buddy Burke said he foresees sequels: 20-20-20 and 30-30-30. This could be a gold mine.
Those of us with NESN see a little too much of Jack Welch, truth be told, sucking up a lot of airwaves commenting on the action, so more Jack ain’t a big deal for us. For those Microsoft partners hungering for Neutron Jack, the WPC will provide a great opportunity to fill up.
