Qualtrics Insight Summit 2015 (or: Where Jamie has Disappeared To)
Last week contained not just Sam's 14th birthday and Sasha's 6th Gotcha Day, but also the 2015 Qualtrics Insight Summit, a four-day data freak extravaganza in Salt Lake City.
It was a blast. The event itself was simply amazing with world-class speakers, fantastic decor, and a killer party every night.
It was also a hell of a lot of work. Here are my highlights:
Vocalize, powered the Command Center with interesting stats, photos, tweets, and insights about Summit. Please excuse the crappy picture, it actually looked totally beautiful in real life.
Journey. That part wasn't really any work, it was just superfun and I couldn't tell you about Summit without mentioning our private concert with Journey.
Oh, yeah, and the completely live demo of our new software in front of over a thousand people looked great, too.
The prep for this mainstage presentation was intense, and it was so worth it. Plus I now know how to read smoothly from a teleprompter; hopefully that's a skill I get to use again someday.
Sundance Instructor of the Year, Steve was invited to come along and help out with the day's festivities.
And now I'm ready for a few quiet weeks catching up on work at my desk. After all, we have to build more great stuff to show off next year!
