Partner Day at the Cherwell Global Conference

Posted by

Here’s how big the Cherwell Global Conference is: Even before the official kickoff this morning, there were two jam-packed days of pre-conference sessions, conversations, and fun.

Yesterday was the last day of pre-conference, and the focus was on Cherwell’s partners. It was a day spent building connections with the many people involved in Cherwell, from all around the world. At our customer advisory board meeting, for instance, our most engaged and well-respected customers exchanged ideas and feedback, and talked about improvements that will make Cherwell the best possible product. Technical alliance partners and integration partners were a big part of the day, too.

Throughout the day, I saw people all around me learning and making connections. At the welcome reception, as a jazz band played and people gathered and mingled in the Broadmoor Ballroom, I saw hugs and handshakes, back slaps, and big grins. There were both excited reunions and the starts of new friendships. We rounded out the day with a late-night mApp-A-Thon—think: hackathon meets mApp-making, with plenty of beverages and desserts to keep the creativity at full blast. A full room of Cherwell designers met to build some really cool functionality, which incorporates the features from our new release in a mApp solution.

For me, there’s no denying that these pre-con days felt a bit like a dress rehearsal for the main event—today, which is the official kick-off to the CGC. Throughout this first official day of the Cherwell Global Conference, we’ll have breakout sessions across all five tracks (Collaborate, Connect, Develop, Learn, and Share). I am so looking forward to seeing our customers and partners share their expertise.

And of course, I’m excited for today’s keynote from Vance Brown, Cherwell’s Executive Chairman and Co-Founder. He’s always such a compelling, captivating speaker—but also, I’m expecting to hear some big announcements during his presentation. (Stay tuned!) Today, we’ll also be looking ahead to what Cherwell will look like in the not-too-distant future. Josh Caid, our VP of Innovation, will be talking about Cherwell’s future and plans in ways that might surprise attendees (and the industry!). And, of course, I can’t wait for the VIP party, which ends out the night. I’ve already had so many wonderful conversations and learned so much from customers and partners—and the conference only officially kicked off last night!
