Qatar World Cup, Catalyst 2023 and more Partnerships news!

The FIFA World Cup is kicking off today, and football fans, or soccer for us American heretics, couldn’t be more excited. That said, things are not that great for those visiting Qatar. There are some pictures going around the Internet that are throwing some major Fyre Festival vibes. Get started on that sequel Netflix! What do you think would be this salad’s equivalent to a partnerships program? Let us know in #watercooler.

Are you having the Catalyst blues?

In August, we hosted the biggest ever global conference for Partnerships in Miami. Teams came from around the world to network, learn, and prepare to uplevel their programs. This week we launched the Catalyst 2023 Early Bird ticket sale! So start packing, this year we’re charting a path for the mountains. See you in Denver!

This week’s Partnerships MVP

Continuing with the sport theme of this thread, our team announced a major reinforcement for the next season. Our very own Chris Samila is our new full time Chief Partnership Officer. Talk about draft of the year! Show Chris some love here.

Tab Openers Anonymous

“Hi, I’m Pete and I’m a compulsive tab opener”. If that’s your case as well (especially when sharing leads with multiple partners), don’t worry PartnerPortal.io has you covered. With Opportunities by PartnerPortal.io, you can track the leads you send to different partners from the same place. And yes, you can do it even if your partners don’t have a portal. That means a leaner browser and happier partners.

Partnership of the Week

ClickUp and Hubspot just announced an amazing partnership. This integration is designed to help companies close the gap between customer experience and the team behind it. As hardcore users of both platforms, the PL team is really happy with this update.

️ New Groundwork episode

In this week’s episode, Tai Rattigan and Tom Williams, of SugarCRM, talk about his amazing experience working with Microsoft, Exact Target, Salesforce and more. Tom’s view on the importance of support for partnerships initiatives coming from the top is amazing.
