Barcelona was the last SAP TechEd of 2017. It was supposed to be the culmination of lessons learned from previous TechEds, ideas you had in the back of your mind but was too afraid to voice, and for some, another opportunity to share their knowledge in-person with those seeking it. Thanks to our SAP TechEd team, the event in Barcelona did not disappoint! I especially liked the improvements to the Community Clubhouse with its blinged-out carpeting and sheer amount of new and familiar visitors it attracted.

SAP Mentors stepped up to help improve engagement and to give attendees a memorable experience since they understand it is important for anybody involved with TechEd (organizers, attendees, speakers and exhibitors). I'm most proud and thankful of Mentors for staffing the Mentors Lemonade stand (booth), giving Mindfulness sessions, leading showfloor tours, and conducting soft-skills seminars in the Mentors Room. And let's not forget #goatspotting activities with Capra. There is much more to be thankful for, including bjoern.goerke 's invitation for Mentors to stand and be recognized during his keynote.

As with previous post-TechEd blogs, I want to share with you a series of interviews Mentors hosted or participated as guests in Barcelona. I feel these live interviews show some of the best qualities of SAP Mentors - curiosity and willingness to share! Thanks to jason.lax for coordinating most of these interviews.

Sit back, relax and enjoy these 19 interview replays!
