Setup your WPC 2014 connections through WPC Connect today

imageEvery year, one of the top benefits that partners share with us that they got out of Worldwide Partner Conference is the invaluable face-to-face connections they made with others while at WPC. Once again this year, we have the WPC Connect tool available through the Digital WPC site that you can utilize to reach out and invite others to connect and schedule meeting times at WPC. Through WPC Connect, you can search for other WPC attendees based on a set of criteria you are interested in (Competencies, business focus, partner type, etc.) and then send out invitations to connect. To do this, go to the WPC Connect page and sign in. From there, Hover over the “My WPC Schedule” dropdown and click on “Schedule a Meeting.”


Once you click “Schedule a Meeting,” you will be able to define the specifics of your meeting, invite attendees, and determine the location:
