Lenovo Business Partner Cocktail Evening and Training Session

Join us for an exclusive ThinkPad event as we mark 25 amazing years of pioneering technology with a meeting of great minds. For one day only, we will bring together Lenovo Think guru Kevin Beck and leading Australian futurist Ross Dawson to mark this momentous occasion.

As a valued Lenovo partner, you’re invited to join us over 2 informative sessions at Sydney’s iconic Ivy Ballroom. In the afternoon session, for a sales and technical audience, there will be a PCG sales enablement training. At 6pm, join us for an evening of networking, drinks and canapés, as Kevin shares the secrets of how ThinkPad has maintained its innovative spirit, whilst Ross imagines the problems technology will solve in the next 25 years.

Be sure to attend for an opportunity to win a limited-edition ThinkPad 25 at the cocktail event.*

I look forward to welcoming you to ThinkPad 25 in Sydney.
