Amsterdam: The Boating Party

10 Sep

You know those boring corporate events you hate to go to after a long day on the show floor? This was not one of them. It’s hard to beat a canal boat cruise on a warm night in a beautiful historic city.

Our alliance partner BlueArc sponsored the event, inviting about 40 customers, resellers and alliance partners, plus a half dozen people from Hitachi Data Systems, which acquired BlueArc last week. With beer, wine, hors d’oeuvres and lively conversations, the three hour tour passed quickly. Then we rushed across town to join our colleagues for a late dinner.

What was the venue of the best corporate event you’ve attended? The worst?

Fix The Toaster

Nearly 32,000 Americans die in car crashes annually. 80% of car crashes are PREVENTABLE. If the TOASTER was killing that many people we'd think it was ridiculous. We'd un-plug it and say, let's Fix The Toaster.
