McAfee Partner Summit: 10 Ways McAfee Executives Engaged Channel Partners

Weihenmayer Inspires Partners

Guest speaker Erik Weihenmayer engaged channel partners with his heartfelt and motivational story about overcoming roadblocks. Weihenmayer, the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 2001, also climbed Mount Ararat and completed the Seven Summits in 2002. The 45-year-old motivational speaker described his journey and how he chose to live a fulfilling life. He told McAfee partner summit attendees that some people are campers who, for one reason or another, are content to stay where they are; other people are climbers and will overcome obstacles to achieve their goals and full potential. Weihenmayer told partners that they should be proud that their role is to advise businesses about threats and provide security technologies that keep people safe from cybercrime.
