  1. Talking points: What is an Influencer Program Types of Programs Traditional (vExpert, Veeam Vanguard, etc.) Open Programs (ioPro, VMware Code, etc) Non-vendor Specific (TechFieldDay) Influencer Program Misconceptions Yes you can become a member Membership is not the end game Being a shill for a company Benefits Common benefits (licenses, swag, NDA / Embargo content, beta program invites) Premium benefits (people: peers, product managers, C-level execs; conference passes, trips, etc.) How to become an influencer: speak at events (VMUGs, vBrownBag) Blog have an opinion and post it (forums, etc.)
