Community Summit North America will be preceded by two highly anticipated preconference sessions on October 16th, both of which are at sell-out capacity:
- AI Summit Preconference will have approximately 250 attendees and include a keynote fireside chat with Microsoft AI and Power Platform leadership. It will also highlight practitioners describing how they have been transforming businesses with AI, as well as Microsoft MVPs sharing insights on ethical AI, app creation, CRM, customer success, and more through Copilot.
“It seems like every discussion surrounds AI today,” explained Cam Sessinger, editor of Dynamics Communities, “and AI Summit Preconference is the perfect venue to learn from both those on the forefront of developing new AI technologies and practitioners who’ve cracked the code on leveraging AI to drive real business outcomes.”
- Partners Preconference, created in collaboration with Microsoft partner and field experts, is a half-day program. It includes a Dynamics Fiscal Year 2024 strategy keynote featuring Microsoft execs Cecilia Flombaum and Steve Cohen, followed by a series of sessions on working with the field, optimizing Partner Center, understanding incentives, and more. All programming is built to deliver actionable guidance, ideas, and roadmaps for Dynamics partners.
“I’m excited to see the addition of a partner pre-day,” said Steve Cohen, General Manager of Business Applications, Corporate East. “It’s always great for Microsoft to get face-to-face with partners and discuss how to optimize working together to help our customers and their teams achieve more.”
The Keynote Program, running October 17th from the main stage, features a diverse and inspirational group of speakers including NASCAR Champion and STEM advocate Julia Landauer, senior executives from Mattress Firm and the Houston Texans, and Microsoft’s Ramirez defining why “Now is the time for AI.”
“We are delighted to welcome this great group of speakers to the 2023 Keynote Program,” said Ryan Gonzales, Sales Director of Community Summit North America, “and it will be an honor to kick off the keynote session by introducing everyone to our 2023 Community Summit Scholarship winners, in partnership with TechFluent and Ludia Consulting.
