We’ve been fortunate enough to have made this journey several times over the years and apart from the throng of networking, celebrating partnerships, learning about new ideas, technologies and forging business relations – it’s sometimes an experience best summed up on one word, exhilarating!
It can equally be summed with another adjective, impressive! Our expectations were exceeded particularly when we re/connected with old and new friends, listened to key notes, attended the evening parties and generally soaked-up the razzmatazz and Microsftism of it all. We even bumped into Gavriella Schuster (Corporate VP of Once Commercial Partners) and it was during her opening Corenote that we noticed our logo was sharing some impressive stage time behind her. As well as being interviewed by one of the press hosts, Kate Yeager, our team also attended the WIT luncheon where Gavriella mentioned that she’d had 109 meetings with different partners but only five of those were with women. None of this fazed CEO and co-founder Katya Linossi whom has been working in IT for over 25 years and has always been an advocate for women in IT.
So, what impressed you?
“Strategy is my thing… I was impressed with how the Corenote sessions shared real customer stories that gave me a couple of new ideas.”
So, what resonated?
“The hologram demo was very exciting and the live Minecraft Earth demo.”
Finally, was the conference inspiring?
“The answer is resounding YES. Yes, to learning more; Yes, to connecting more.”
