After our well-received partner conferences last May and June, we were a little bit worried that we couldn’t make our events any better than that. Well, we’re still challenging ourselves and raising expectations for our partner events, starting with our Discover Sophos Tour.
Recently we took our tour to the UK, where we visited 15 partner locations. We trained 200 salespeople and 100 customers and prospects on the security landscape and our next generation of network and endpoint security products.
These events aren’t just about knowledge sharing and training – we add a lot of fun activities and challenges, like a climbing wall and virtual skiing, with opportunities to win big prizes. Here are some of the things our participating UK partners said about the Discover Sophos Tour.
“Fantastic day, really, really impressed, you guys have gone all out again and as always provided one of the most engaging vendor days we have had! Great work, look forward to the next!”
– Adam Price, Softcat
“The Sophos Discover Tour was a great success which helped educate our customers, prospects and staff while providing a fun day for all.”
– Daniel Ibbertson, ADM Computing
“The day was very well organized, everyone loved it and the training that was delivered really did resonate with the team.”
– Gareth Pughs, Softcat
“The whole day was productive, fun and had a great atmosphere.”
– Luke Kiernan, Bytes Software
We also want to congratulate the winners of our 5 Peaks Challenge – Softcat, ADM Computing, HBP, Bytes Software, Foursys, SHI, Trustmarque, Virtue Technologies and Bechtle – who will be joining us for the Discover Sophos VIP Winner’s Day at Xscape Milton Keynes.
