Tribridge’s Southeast Customer Summit was last Thursday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Despite some AV and Internet connectivity problems early on (how ironic that we’re a technology company with technical issues!), it was a great event.
Our goal for the day was to provide an educational experience for our customers. There have been so many recent changes in technology that it can be difficult to wrap your arms around it all. It’s hard to tell where one application ends and the other begins. Add cloud computing to the mix, and it can get even more overwhelming. Last Thursday was about helping our customers gain clarity about the cloud so they can begin developing a vision for how it can benefit their organizations. It was also about making introductions and building connections between customers who share similar roles, industry challenges and objectives.
One of the highlights of the day for me personally was the keynote by George Gordon, former Silicon Valley executive and now CEO of Tampa-based Enporion, a supply chain management company that provides e-commerce and e-procurement services. George is the director of the Florida High Tech Corridor Council and serves on the State’s Technology, Research and Scholarship Board, among his many other community involvements. His presentation on the impact of technology on local economies was inspiring and thought-provoking. The video he showed can be found on YouTube.
I would like to thank all of our customers who attended the event. We would love to hear your feedback. I’d also like to thank our sponsor partners who generously gave of their time and resources – and of course our team at Tribridge who worked so hard to make the event a success.
For those customers who weren’t able to attend the summit, we want to hear from you, too. As I mentioned Thursday, our mission is and always has been to help you navigate the ever-changing world of technology. If you have questions, we are here to provide the answers you need.
