VMware Announces EMPOWER 2019 Ambassadors

EMPOWER is the only elite Technical and (NEW) Sales training program in 2019 available for partners. This year, VMware is announcing EMPOWER Ambassadors to share first-hand experiences from last year’s inaugural event. The event content is built from the same advanced curriculum delivered to VMware’s own internal technical and sales teams to ensure skill parity and alignment, including –

  • 90+ breakout sessions and instructor-led hands-on labs across all of VMware’s most advanced products and technologies
  • Richest content including Cloud, Kubernetes, VeloCloud, Digital Workspace, and more
  • Insights & tips from top technical and sales specialists, future roadmap advancements
  • Engagements with top technical and sales peers from VMware and VCDX experts
  • Free VCP or VCAP certification exam valued up to $450 (limited seats)

With EMPOWER US only a few weeks away – to help spread the word of EMPOWER to the community and provide a first-hand partner-to-partner experience of what to expect, we are honored to announce our official EMPOWER Ambassadors for 2019.

All ambassadors attended our inaugural EMPOWER last year, and a key part of our program to evolve the strategy and roadmap from a partner-centric perspective.
