Sitecore, the global leader in digital experience management software, is welcoming thousands of global marketers to its annual Sitecore Symposium, scheduled Oct. 8 – 11 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Fla. More than 100 content sessions across five topic tracks will focus on this year’s theme “Elevate the Experience,” with the event providing attendees a dynamic setting to learn, evolve, and connect while immersed in a community of Sitecore experts, partners, and customers.
“Stakes have never been higher for marketers to excel at creating compelling, differentiating, and truly personalized digital experiences,” said Paige O’Neill, Sitecore’s chief marketing officer. “Our goal at this year’s Symposium is to inspire our community with a powerful combination of industry thought leaders, peer-led sessions, support from our passionate partner network, and a strong focus on the business results our customers are seeing from Sitecore-powered experiences.”

John is a multiple New York Times best-selling author and star on ABC’s Shark Tank, and his pragmatic advice for setting and achieving objectives resonates with everyone from entry-level employees to corporate CEOs.
