Michelle Martin Kocher of Delta Medical Systems is our Share Your Convergence Story November winner for her written submission about her first Convergence experience. Congratulations Michelle, and enjoy your $250 American Express gift card! Michelle's first Convergence was 2009 in New Orleans, where she learned about new products, networked and rode the mechanical bull had some 'fun' on Bourbon Street. Check it out to see what you might expect in March.

Does her story inspire one of your own? Then send it in! Each month is a new opportunity to win a $250 American Express gift card and be entered for that grand prize - a FREE full attendee pass to Convergence 2014!

Your entry can be a written story or a video, like the one submitted by Jerry Weinstock of CRM Innovation. His video gets November's Honorable Mention and highlights the value of the in-person experience of Convergence - including one conversation that triggered what he calls "the single best thing that has ever happened to him" in all his years in business.

Incredible things happen when like-minded folks get together to push the bounds of their experience, ask questions and connect with new people.
