Dec 2, 2019
Just a few short weeks ago, Microsoft held its Ignite conference. Over 29k people filled the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. It was a very energy-filled week! And your host, Jeffrey Palermo, had the privilege of being on staff this year as a part of the Community Reporter Team.
The night before the conference, Jeffrey hosted a Party with Palermo event — an event he has been doing since 2005 (with the first one being just an open call to gather for dinner at a hotel restaurant!) Since then, he’s had at least one Party with Palermo every year following — this year being no exception.
In this episode, Jeffrey interviews a number of people at the party. And hopefully, you’ll find just a few more community leaders to follow after listening to today’s show!
