With the Diamond Challenge Summit underway, we are excited to finally introduce our keynote speakers. These individuals have years of experience under their belts and are super excited to share their expertise with the talented semifinalists at our Summit. It is our greatest pleasure to work with these extraordinary entrepreneurs and we are so grateful for their help in making the Diamond Challenge Summit a memorable experience for our competitors. So without further ado, it is our pleasure to introduce Mitchell Kick!
Mitchell Kick brings extensive industry, consulting and entrepreneurial experience to his role as head of strategy, programs, and governance for SAP’s Global Business Development and Ecosystems (GBDE) group. In this position, Mr. Kick drives strategic direction, resource allocation, performance management and cross-organization engagement. He is responsible for overall ecosystem strategy and oversees execution of vital strategic initiatives for the company’s software, technology and global service partners.
A little bit about his company: as the Experience Company powered by the Intelligent Enterprise, SAP is the market leader in enterprise application software. SAP helps companies of all sizes and in all industries run at their best: 77% of the world’s transaction revenue touches an SAP system. Its end-to-end suite of applications and services enables more than 437,000 business and public customers to operate profitably, adapt continuously and make a difference. With a global network of customers, partners, employees and thought leaders, SAP helps the world run better and improve people’s lives.
We are so excited to see the advice and insight that Mr. Kick will impart on our semifinalists and the inspiration they will receive from such an extraordinary individual. We can’t wait to have Mitch share his personal experience and professional insights with us!
