Partner Summit 2010 Kicks Off

- April 27, 2010 - 0 Comments

The wait is over–Partner Summit 2010 kicked off in San Francisco today. This year, we’ve got lots of new ways to participate, interact, and share ideas on how to accelerate growth and opportunity in 2010 and beyond. We managed to chat with some partners just arriving at the event and found out what they’d like to hear.

At this morning’s Learning Partner Advisory meeting, attendees got a glimpse at how the Learning Partner program will evolve over the next year. The Learning Program will also support mobile learning—check out this video in Channels Buzz, which highlights how one partner is developing the use of an iPad to access training.


A Women’s Leadership networking event rounded out the day today—our reporters ventured there with Flip cameras in hand, as well, asking attendees a host of questions, while also soliciting advice for women just starting in their careers.

Not able to attend Partner Summit in person? Then head over to Virtual Partner Summit, where you can watch live streaming keynotes, and gain access to a wide range of content, tweets, activities, networking, and news from the event. And be sure to visit Channels Buzz to view the latest videos from Partner Summit, but to share your thoughts and to see what other attendees are saying.

Tuesday will be busy as well—we’ll have keynotes from Keith Goodwin, Rob Lloyd, and Edison Peres, as well as theater breakout sessions. Check back here on the blog for the latest news on what’s developing—it’s bound to be a packed day!
