“I thought nothing could top Milan in 2019, but it's been an absolutely amazing Rising experience. I think the best part of the experience for me certainly was yesterday, day two. All the innovation that just came up, all the new things that are coming out, but most importantly, the fact that Workday is now really putting power back in our hands to innovate and create such amazing things with a solid core such as Workday.”
