Before Worldwide Partner Conference 2011, I put up my Looking forward to meeting you and adding some more faces here at WPC11 post showing some samples of pictures I had captured with attendees in prior years at Worldwide Partner Conference and that that this year would be no different. Well, throughout WPC11, I had the pleasure to talk with, meet, and catch up with so many people from all around the world and, of course, managed to grab pictures with some of them too. As such, I thought I would share some of the pictures (click any picture for full size) from those connections here on the blog. Do you recognize any of these people? If not, maybe you can keep an eye out for them in future Worldwide Partner Conferences, or even take note of them and look them up for possible connections in the WPC Connect tool at next year’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto or online in the social media sphere:

Thanks to all of you that took me up on my offer and connected with me during WPC11, including taking some photographs with me as well. I really do appreciate it and it was a pleasure to connect and to actually meet some of you face to face for the first time (even though we have communicated and connected through social media several times over the past few years).

I hope you enjoy the pictures as well and if you are going to be attending WPC 2012 next year, maybe start giving it a thought if you would be interested in connecting in person there and being part of my WPC 2012 picture collection that I will be posting at that time. Smile
