Continuing the Spark at Progress Exchange 2013

Continuing the Spark at Progress Exchange 2013

Posted on October 09, 2013 0 Comments

Yesterday was another great day at Progress Exchange 2013, with many more networking opportunities, breakout sessions, and of course, the finale at PARTY@Exchange

Attendees were treated to a fantastic keynote by Luke G. Williams, who is a renowned authority on Innovation Leadership and the internationally bestselling author of “DISRUPT: Think the Unthinkable to Spark Transformation in Your Business”. His presentation was not only informative, but engaging, with video examples and attendee participation. We certainly left feeling inspired and hope that you did too!


We were able to take additional time to chat with more Progress executives and partners in the afternoon, so be sure to check out the YouTube playlist below for the new videos from Progress Exchange 2013.


Taking some time away from the other event activities, attendees were encouraged to take part in the UNCONFERENCE—a refreshing change from the traditional conference structure. Participants were able to meet with Progress developers, product managers and peers for an informal, but meaningful discussion on key topics.
