Sue Wright who works in the building said “This is out and out visual pollution that should not be allowed. If every Company was allowed to daub posters onto the pavement could you image what our streets would look like”.

Brad Smith – Global EVP Customer Experience – Departs Sage

03c3d4aSage Global EVP Customer Experience Brad Smith has departed Sage – reportedly July 17, 2015 – after having moved in the Global EVP Customer Experience 5 months ago.

Smith moved to Sage from Yahoo in July 2012 as EVP Customer Experience and spearheaded such initiatives as the Inspire Tour and bus tour which visited local communities and offered customers a chance to learn and interact with Sage products.

In a note to select partners Smith notes “As you know by now I have left Sage. These decisions are never very easy, but I’m confident that it is the right move. Sage is a remarkable company, staffed with remarkable people who are clearly some of the best at what they do. I can’t wait to see where Sage goes next.”

Sage Summit 2015 Attendance: 7,260

Sage Announces 7,260 Attendance for Summit 2015

Sage today announced 7,260 attendees at their Summit 2015 conference which is slated to kick off today 7/27/15 with a partner day. Tomorrow 7/28/15 the conference will officially open with a keynote from CEO Stephen Kelly.

The attendance announced is pretty close to the initial 7,500 Sage estimate (though a few thousand short of the 9,500 the New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau had posted on their site). Considering the warm temperatures and sweltering humidity in New Orleans during July 2015 (81 degrees at 6am – “feels like 106” at 1pm – the turnout appears exceptional.

Overall coordination appears much improved over prior conferences. Satellite registration at the Hilton went smoothly with only a few lines to contend with.

The conference App has seen heavy usage and seems likely to be a huge aid to Sage in connecting attendees.

If you are not “on the ground” in New Orleans – you can watch many of the keynotes online
