Headshot-as-a-Service was a success, but I have to say it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted.

Day zero started of with the Nordic & Baltic VMware Partner Briefing Brunch at the Hotel W. The parter briefing contained updates on the way forward for VMware Partner Central as well as upcoming updates to the partner model, something I look forward too. In my opinion, and thankfully VMware’s too, Partner Central is way overdue a major overhaul, so this is good news!
