Last March 12-14, 2019, 10.28 Innovations attended the 2019 SAP SMB Innovation Summit at Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at Central World, Bangkok, Thailand. With the theme, “Delivering the Intelligent Enterprise for SMBs”, the event that was dubbed as “the Biggest, the Best and Most Remarkable partner event ever organized by SAP in Asia”, gathered approximately 650 attendees.
The event was welcomed by Paulo Almeida, Global Head of Marketing for SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign and was followed by Luis Marguia, Global SVP for SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign who spoke about the Business Momentum & the SMB Intelligent Enterprise Opportunity.
Another keynote speaker, Mark Jeffries, inspired the audience with his keynote presentation entitled, “Become the Disruptor, Influence the Change”. He highlighted that aside from your job description, one has three other job titles which are: (1) be the Head of Sales for yourself, (2) be the Director of Translation, and (3) be a Chief Story-Teller. He also added the one is to have a “red pencil” in order to stand out among the rest.
The three-day summit enabled different SAP Partners from all over Asia Pacific to learn, explore, connect, and be inspired through various keynotes from industry experts and successful leaders as well as view the product upgrades related to SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign. It networked other members of the SAP Partner Ecosystem in sharing their best practices and opened more opportunities to connect with vertical solution partners.
In summary, the 2019 SAP SMB Innovation summit was a huge opportunity for partners to strengthen their skill set in order to grow and achieve more in the industry.
