Last February, I got the great opportunity of being appointed as the Alliance Manager for the Coveo for Sitecore line of business. This has been a wonderful adventure and an incredible learning experience. I get to meet very interesting people do a ton of traveling, what more can you ask for?

Fast forward to Wednesday, August 17 4:00am – The alarm goes off and it’s time to get ready for a big day in NYC. Two other team members will be joining me in the city that never sleeps, Marie from San Francisco and Simon from Quebec City. flight-to-nyc

One of the many perks of working for an innovative high tech company, is having access to the best technology, making it easier to leave a lasting impression in our teleconference meetings, webinars, presentations and any discussion with our partners and clients remotely. However, nothing compares to face to face meetings when doing business. That’s why I get travel 2 to 3 times a month to a different city, across the US and Canada. My most recent trip to NYC was to present at a Sitecore User Group and personally visit all our partners, potential partners and clients in the area. My visits are made up of business/strategic meetings as well as technical and sales workshops. While it can be challenging to balance it all, it is very rewarding. One of the things that brings me the greatest satisfaction is seeing how our partners and their customers come together, like Fishtank and Enbridge. It is so great to see that our team and technology are making a real difference, every day.enbridge-on-board

Very soon, I’ll be celebrating 7 months at Coveo. During this time, I have participated in15 different events such as Sitecore User Groups, 3 technical trainings and I got to personally meet, hear and help the majority of our partners. This is a new industry for me but I’m enjoying the ride, a lot! Colleagues have been very helpful taking me to full-speed. Keep a close eye on our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts; we’ll probably be visiting your city very soon and it would be great to meet you, let the adventure continue!
