This is one of my most favorite moments. We’ve spent the last months preparing for Collective2014 and it’s finally here. Last night we kicked-off the first of our three city tour in Orlando with drinks and food poolside. The weather was amazing and the networking was even better.
I got a chance to connect with many of our speakers at last night’s reception and their presentations are going to be awesome. Kraft, State Street, Unisys, Comcast, MasterCard… the list goes on and their stories are impressive.
Make Work Better is the theme of Collective2014 and how can you claim success without giving employees the ability to get work done anywhere and on ANY device? Who knows that better than Microsoft, our global sponsor. They brought their device bar and are ready to showcase the latest and greatest Microsoft mobile devices.
It’s not a conference without those “eureka” moments. You know when you are sitting in a session and the speaker says something so inspiring you quickly write it down so you can take it home and share it? This year imason brought the “Eureka App” to Collective. Built on Sitrion One, the app is the perfect way for attendees to share “eureka” moments. After the conference ends, we will be sure to share which session is most inspiring.
And if that’s not enough, we have our Experience Lounge, sponsored by Synergy, where we take "experience" to a whole new level. I sat on the cool silver couches in the lounge this morning, recharged my phone, and watched our own Jenny Blumberg show off our cool mobile apps.
I could go on and on but I am late for the next session. If you aren’t in Orlando, follow the conversation on Twitter, via #collective2014 and we will share as much as we can.
