Marketing Team Report by Richard Van Tilborg

  • Reported IP block by Rochen at JAB 2017 during exam.

  • Exam requests. We have received Exam session requests / intentions from Sweden, Algiers, Uganda and Israel.

  • JAB17. Besides the exam technical issue, visiting JandBeyond was a very successful trip. We have connected to many people from other teams, event organizers and (user) groups. I can say we increased exam awareness and created new leads for other exam sessions.
