What a week. Last night’s performance by Train was a great way to wrap up this record-breaking year for WPC. It was fun to see partners get up on stage last night with Pat Monahan and sing for the crowd. YOU are what make this event what it is.
If you haven’t done so already, please log-in to WPC Connect and complete your session evaluations! Remember, for every evaluation completed, a donation will be made to the Children’s Miracle Network and/or the Boys and Girls Clubs. Not only do we want your feedback, but we also want to donate big to these worthwhile organizations.
I’m already busy thinking about how we can make Houston an even bigger HIT! Mark your calendar because we’re taking Houston by storm July 7 – 11, 2013. It’s going to be big. Did you know – if Houston were an independent nation, it would rank as the world’s 30th largest economy!? I’ve also learned that Houstonians “eat out” more than residents of any other city – and with more than 11,000 restaurants – there’s definitely something for everyone.
I’m really looking forward to getting to work to create an experience where WPC is the top value-add investment for your business, because of the ROI. Next year, I want partners to bring many team members with them to WPC, not just one or two key people. This is top of mind for me.
Yesterday, I received some interesting stats about wireless usage at WPC that I thought you might find interesting:
- We saw a peak of 8,823 concurrent wireless users, and a total of 22,000+ unique devices on the network over the course of the week
- There were 5,000+ Skype calls placed during the week
- Between 700-800 Lync calls were made
This shows just how important making connections are to you. I am pleased with the thousands and thousands of networking meetings that took place, important business interactions, and how you can now take this expanded network and grow your business. I want YOU to be even more successful in FY13.
Partners, thank you for making WPC 2012 a roaring success. I am looking forward to seeing your evaluation feedback and considering your input as I plan WPC 2013. Have a wonderful and safe rest of your summer and thank you for all that you do.
