We don’t call it a “summit” for nothing. Big doings at the HPE Global Partner Summit

The HPE Global Partner Summit is always one of the major highlights of the year for me, Sure, it’s hectic. Sure, there’s a lot going on. Sure, there are loads of demands on people’s time. But where else do you get the opportunity to see, talk to and interact with so many great HPE partners all in one location.

So I’m definitely looking forward to the event – from its very first to very last minute.

It’s an event that creates superlatives and then lives up to them. I hope to see you there.
