CrackBerry Podcast Episode 040: Best CrackBerry Podcast Ever!

The 2009 BlackBerry EMEA Alliance Summit is now over and the event once again was a great success. Speaking to many of the alliance members in attendance it was made clear to me that RIM has been listening and is doing their part to ensure those in the business of BlackBerry in the EMEA region are equipped with the tools and knowledge to be successful, and that events like the EMEA Summit help build those vital relationships.

Following up on our 2009 Innovation Awards, I caught up with Rory O'Neill and Mike Kirkup of Research in Motion Friday morning for a special edition CrackBerry Podcast. Rory is the Senior Director of Business Marketing in the EMEA region and Mike Kirkup is the Director of Developer Relationships (this is Mike's 3rd CrackBerry Podcast!). 

THIS IS A MUST LISTEN TO PODCAST for anybody wanting to learn more about BlackBerry in Europe. If you're a developer based in North America trying to conduct business over the pond, you'll want to listen. If you're in the business of BlackBerry and based in the EMEA (Europe - Middle East - Africa) region but are not an alliance member, you'll want to listen also. And for every CrackBerry addict who listens to our shows, you'll defintely want to tune in to get educated. HUGE thanks to Rory and Mike for taking the time to join ous on this one. Enjoy the show!

Between the BlackBerry devlopers conference, EMEA Summit and holidays all happening in the past month, made it a little difficult to have time to sit down and do that many podcasts. But hey, we brought good coverage for those events fair trade no? :)
