One More Reason for WPC12 by Karl Noakes, GM PS&P
General Manager, PS&P
It’s hard to believe that in 90-something days, we’ll all converge on Toronto to reconnect and form new relationships that drive and grow your business. It’ll be a full week of meeting with industry peers, learning about the Microsoft roadmap for success, and hearing about what’s next. On Thursday, July 12, we’ll close what we think will be the best WPC ever. To celebrate, we’re featuring the Grammy award–winning band, Train.
Now, I’m always up for a good rock concert. In my younger days in London, I enjoyed many bands and I still debate over which band would qualify as my first rock concert—as it would depend on whether I’d classify myself as a rocker or a mod. But there’s no question, seeing Train live will be something you’ll never forget.
The San Francisco–based band is unveiling their latest album, California 37, on April 17. The album’s first single, “Drive By,” is currently on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (when I just checked now it was #13). They’re looking forward to playing our party.
We’re excited for you to maximize your WPC experience: choosing from hundreds of sessions, accessing the Solution Innovation Center, and taking advantage of limitless opportunities for networking. And while you’re in Toronto connecting, collaborating, and building your business, we’re topping it off the band who brought you “Meet Virginia,” “Drops of Jupiter” and “Hey, Soul Sister.”
The deadline for early-bird registration is set to end April 5.If I were a partner, I would register before this deadline because the U.S.$300 you save will certainly help fund the pints you’ll be having the night of the concert. I hope you’ll join me.
