Barkley Meets the Press

Yesterday, Mike Saxby and I had a brush with fame during a pre-show meeting with former NBA pro Charles Barkley, the keynote speaker for this weeks Channel Partners Conference & Expo.

Talk about larger than life. Sir Charles is just that, literally. When I asked him about his favorite gadgets, his special edition black Motorola RAZR cell phone, it looked like a toy in his hands. Charles has two phones listen to our video clip to find out why.

Barkley posed for photos with the Channel Partners Conference & Expo staff and some VIPs hand-picked by Voila IP, sponsors of the keynote address. In addition, he signed basketballs that Voila IP is giving away in drawings throughout the show.

Barkley is known for his irreverence did not disappoint. He is self-deprecating to a point. Apparently, comparisons to Saxby are where he draws the line as you will see in the video clip.

Stay tuned for highlights of Barkleys address and the no-holds barred Q&A.
