Celebrating Our Customers in Orlando at Insight 2019

Mike Corkery Welcome to Deltek Insight 2019 Orlando

By Mike Corkery, President and Chief Executive Officer, Deltek 

Today, November 18, is a special day for us at Deltek… it’s the day we are kicking off our annual Insight customer conference.  We are welcoming the largest gathering of the Deltek Project Nation community we’ve ever hosted! The Deltek experts our customers rely on are here in Orlando in full force to host innovative technology discussions, share best practices, and join together with the over 3,500 attendees for some great networking and entertainment!

First and foremost, this week is all about our customers. We will be celebrating their success, applauding their achievements, and arming them with knowledge about the future of Deltek and how we plan to continue powering their project success. To kick off the week, we will be recognizing outstanding customer and partner achievements across all the industries we serve with the MVP (Most Valuable Projects) Awards.

We are thrilled to once again have Mike Robbins host the event for us and share his amazing advice and expertise on leadership. We also have two incredible and inspirational keynote speakers with us this week – John O’Leary who will take the stage today and Sarah Robb O’Hagan who will close out our General Session on Wednesday. I’m confident that their powerful stories will stay with all of our attendees far beyond Insight, and will inspire everyone to take steps to conquer personal and professional obstacles.

Being in Orlando – and given that today is also Mickey Mouse’s 91st birthday – it’s only fitting I share this quote from Walt Disney: We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” That same curiosity is part of our culture at Deltek, in fact, it’s one of our corporate values that impacts our work every day. On Tuesday and Wednesday, attendees will get a glimpse into how our curiosity is leading us down new paths and attendees will hear first-hand how the game-changing technologies that we are incorporating into our solutions will transform their businesses now and in the future.

There’s more to Insight than the inspirational and educational sessions. Insight brings together the Deltek Project Nation community to build new connections. The XPO is the hub of our networking – with solution and sponsor kiosks, receptions and philanthropic activities – there will be plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. And of course, we always look forward to spending time together at our annual customer appreciation event, Celebrate Insight. This year we are taking over Universal CityWalk for Deltek’s first-ever music festival!

This is sure to be a memorable week here in Orlando. If you can’t join us in person, you can still follow all that is happening at Deltek Insight. Look for conference highlights on the Deltek Project Nation blog and social media by using the hashtag #DeltekInsight. Thanks for your support of Deltek, and for your confidence in us – it means the world to us to be a small part of the great things that you all do to make our world a better, safer, more creative and more beautiful place.  #DeltekProjectNation
