7 things you need to know before you go to #WorkivaTEC

7 things you need to know before you go to #WorkivaTEC
September 14, 2015

An attendee of Wdesk user conference said it best:

The Exchange Community is one-stop shopping—great speakers, quality CPE, access to experts and leaders in our field, and world-class events. The senior management at Workiva is the who's who of the industry, and hearing from them is tremendously insightful. I get all the CPE I need while gaining very pointed and useful education on Wdesk solutions. I get to interact face-to-face with my CSM and PSM, as well as get a glimpse of Wdesk development. Finally, we are treated like royalty at the evening events!
