Our MD Jordan was one of four lucky Podio Partners who were invited out to Los Angeles in January to attend the 2017 Citrix Summit.

Jordan reported back to us:

The whole event was pretty spectacular. What struck me most was the energy and enthusiasm from the whole Citrix team – everyone seemed to really enjoy working for Citrix and, I have to admit, it really made me proud to be associated with such a great organisation.

A big eye-opener to me was just what an incredible piece of technology Citrix ShareFile really is. It really does bring an impressive enterprise level of functionality and makes it accessible to organisations of all sizes. For SMEs, this is the perfect substitute for your clunky old file server, and for enterprise clients, the ability to connect to your existing file servers and securely share files (from anywhere and on any device) is a HUGE win.

It was a whistle-stop tour for me, as I flew out from Heathrow on Sunday and flew back on the Wednesday night (landed on Thursday and went straight into a three hour client meeting in London that I had to host!), but it was definitely worth it. It was great to get to know Thomas, Anders and Dan a bit better (fellow Podio Partners) and to connect to a wider Citrix community.

Thanks to Helene & Kruti for being such great hosts!

There you have it – we were all a bit jealous of Jordan jetting off to Los Angeles, but he assures us it was all business. Next time the whole team wants to go!
