I often compare big events to final exams. You prep, practice test, and hopefully show up feeling prepared and confident. But still, you wait and wonder if you did everything possible to achieve the best outcome. HPE Discover is much the same for me. With a set agenda and a list of objectives, I still wonder if I can meet my end goal. Whatever the outcome, the new solutions, innovations, renewed friendships and most of all the synergy of our community always makes the long journey to Discover worthwhile. Sure, most of us network throughout the year, maybe join a webinar or two, attend a conference or roadshow, but none equals face-to-face time like HPE Discover.
As in past years, it was an honor to attend Meg Whitman’s Women Leaders in Technology Reception. A reoccurring theme from the panel was how as women we can empower and lift one another to reach beyond our potential. I could not help but feel nostalgic- it’s never been a secret at how much admiration I have for Meg Whitman. Bittersweet. She has gifted me with a better understanding of what it means to be imperfect, get back up when you are down and to follow the bouncing ball!
