Day Three of the Cherwell Global Conference: Inspired and Ready to Innovate

Posted by

This is my third time at the Cherwell Global Conference (and my second turn as emcee), and I’m convinced this was our best event yet. This last day may have been a short one, but just like every day at the conference, it was full of insights and information. Plus, prizes! Here were some of the moments that really stood out:

The closing keynote: Both Vance Brown and Craig Harper were full of gratitude as they closed out the conference. For Brown, there was no way to reflect without thinking of meaningful moments of connection with individuals—moments where people shared stories and feedback.  “This was an inspiring week,” said Harper, adding how much he’d appreciated people’s willingness to give frank, unvarnished feedback on how Cherwell can improve as a company.

Acknowledging winners: Pulling together the list of award winners was an absolute delight—from our longest tenured customer (Western Carolina University) to our social media star (SaifAli Master), there were plenty of people to highlight and award prizes. And remember back to the pre-conference when we held the mApp-A-Thon? Ten teams assembled that evening, creating seven new mApp solutions you’ll see in the Exchange early next week. The winning mApp—from Team Canada—was a GoToMeeting Integration that allows new meetings to be created and launched from the Incident Object.

Changing the world: During the closing keynote, Brown spoke on one of the core questions of the conference: “What will we do, using innovation with purpose, to change the world together?” One answer can be seen in the money raised by attendees and Cherwell throughout the conference for Judi’s House: $31,200. Thank you to everyone who participated in the silent auction and fun run, contributing to this worthy cause.

As you return to your offices, we hope that you have more knowledge than ever before about what Cherwell can do for you. Most of all, whether you joined us in Colorado or followed along from afar, we hope you feel inspired to innovate with purpose.

Registration is already open for the 2017 Cherwell Global Conference, which will take place on October 16-19th in Colorado Springs. Find out more information and register.
