A Note of Thanks for Your Support of #AvayaENGAGE Mexico
There’s an old saying, “Challenging times reveal your true friends.” In the months following our debt restructuring, customers and partners have never wavered in their confidence in Avaya, most recently when 3,000 joined us in Mexico City for #AvayaENGAGE Mexico (formerly Avaya Evolutions). This incredible show of support validates what our competitors don’t want you to believe: Avaya has friends in all the right places, and they’re only growing in numbers!
We have a wonderful video reel and photos that highlight experiences from #AvayaENGAGE, from our CEO Kevin Kennedy’s opening keynote address, which was streamed live over Facebook, to presentations from our own Gary Barnett and Laurent Philonenko, including an exclusive CIO forum lunch with more than 100 regional CIOs. This moment proved to be the perfect opportunity to drive conversations around innovation and transformation on a panel with our Avaya leadership team and Uri Levine, founder of Waze. In addition, guest speakers Dr. Jaime Serra Puche, former secretary of treasury and public credit economist at Yale University; and Alondra de la Parra, Mexican founder and artistic director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, kept audiences engaged until early evening.
Believe me, ask anyone who was with us in Mexico and they’ll tell you … the energy was contagious. As Maiara Munhoz from Frost and Sullivan put it, “It’s great what I’ve seen here at #AvayaENGAGE. Many companies speak about their greatness but Avaya is showing they are taking the digital transformation seriously. I love its transparency … a thing that many companies don’t have.”
Feedback like this is gratifying … motivating … inspiring.
#AvayaENGAGE Mexico delivered on so many levels thanks to the people who make the work we do every day worthwhile: our customers, our partners, and our employees. I couldn’t be more proud to work for a company that revels in working together—side by side—all of us rolling up our sleeves and becoming immersed and invested in solving today’s challenges and goals.
It is because of all of you that Avaya continues to create fresh, innovative engagement solutions on the hottest technologies, in the cloud or on premises.
It is because of you and your confidence in us that we’re able to continue to show our #AvayaStrength in the market.
And it is for you that we remain committed to becoming an even stronger Avaya in the future.
Thank you for being with us on our journey. Get ready now for #AvayaENGAGE 2018 because I promise you this: “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”
