From the 28th to the 30th of June, Cloud Galacticos, a partner of, participated in the annual summit in Lisbon, Portugal with a collective audience of partners from SIs to ISVs, together with representatives. Here’s my Unite Partner Summit review.

As the world increasingly moves into a digital and connected space, it is also vital to develop the support that is needed internally and externally in terms of growth and training.





Partner Roundtable Unite Partner Summit LisbonFor me, the takeaways were topics covering customer value, engagement, and observations within Education, Non-profit, and Enterprise. These areas allow those new to the opportunity to learn from those already involved.

I also enjoyed the Partner roundtable discussions. My highlight was on ‘How to deal with the Good, Bad, and the Ugly’. It covered lessons learned as well as the correct way to move forward in difficult situations. For example, not all customers are the same, and taking care to listen, deliver, and nature relationships. This helps inspire confidence and help build long-term relationships.




Inspiring and Engaging

Paul O'Dowd at Unite Partner Summit LisbonOverall, the meeting of minds, sharing knowledge, and the chance to meet face-to-face again was priceless. And after a couple of uncertain years, it made the summit even more inspiring and engaging. It’s helped me realise that at Cloud Galacticos, we aim to continue to support non-profit customers. We also aim to provide the best possible advice, service and knowledge where required.

Finally, congratulations to all the Partner of the Year winners, Cobra CRM, Hyphen8, Apysnergy, Own Backup & Vera Solutions.
