Big Names for SAP’s Largest Partner Event of the Year

Bill McDermott. SAP CEO.

As captured in his nationally best-selling memoir, “Winners Dream,” Bill got his start running a small delicatessen business on Long Island, New York, at age 16. He knows what it takes to lead a fledgling business, and to rise to the top as CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

Bill is passionate about the role partners play in the success of SAP and our mutual customers, and returns this year to share his latest perspectives on business and the future.

Join us to hear Bill’s thoughts on SAP’s vision of how partners can profit while helping customers transform and Run Live, and no doubt get a sneak preview of what’s in store at SAPPHIRE NOW that starts the following day.



Daymond John. Entrepreneur and ABC TV’s Shark Tank Investor

Before he became a starring investor on ABC’s Shark Tank, Daymond John turned $40 into FUBU, a $6 Billion sportswear business and fashion industry game-changer. It all started with a line of hats made in his mother’s house in Hollis, Queens, New York. This author, branding guru and Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship will share the philosophy and practices that help him be successful in business and life.

Daymond considers his continued fight against dyslexia as one of his greatest accomplishments, embracing the affliction as a catalyst for his career, and demonstrated by his three bestselling books, and more than 35 awards, including Brandweek’s Marketer of the Year. As a dynamic person with more than 25 years of proven business experience, Daymond has become one of the most sought after speakers. His entrepreneurial story of sacrifice, hard work, perseverance, investment insights, and unique charisma, will inspire you on May 15.
