Xbox “Most Valuable Professional” Summit 2018
Every year Microsoft holds a week-long summit for all the people who have been given the “Most Valuable Professional” (MVP) award. Held in the Seattle, Redmond campus; The summit is a fun and informal way of Microsoft talking to us about all their future plans and getting our feedback on their current direction.
Most of what we experienced was super duper top secret, but I can say that it was a wonderful time and I met lots of amazing people including the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer. We posed for a heavy metal selfie.
A real highlight was a tour of the Microsoft “Inclusive Tech Lab”; A space dedicated to researching and creating cool technology to help disabled people to enjoy gaming more. A truly inspiring and thought-provoking experience.
All in all, a truly awesome experience to be a part of team Xbox on a deeper level and to interact with the people from Microsoft directly about our favourite hobby is a dream come true. I can’t wait for next year.
