On February 19 this year, Steve Morris from Eventful Management got in touch and asked if we could discuss a “new business-focused conference on SharePoint.” Eventful Management have a history of creating business-focused conferences and communities around SAP, and based on their track record, Microsoft asked if they would do the same for SharePoint. After eight-and-a-half months of research and planning, the conference is just about here.
Share 2010 is on in Sydney next week, running from Monday November 29 to Wednesday December 1:
“37 presentations, workshops and discussions in 6 tracks over 3 days from companies using SharePoint everyday in their business: Telstra; Mississippi Department of Transportation (USA); John Holland; DB Breweries (NZ); Samueli Institute (USA); Fremantle Ports Authority; AGL Energy Limited; South East Water; Sinclair Knight Merz; Land and Property Management Authority; Pearson Australia Group; Department of Broadband,Communications and Digital Economy; Parsons Brinckerhoff; Redland City Council; Department of Environment and Conservation (WA); Brisbane Catholic Education; and Siemens Industry, Inc. (USA)…“
I’m attending (and speaking) at Share 2010 next week. I’m really looking forward to the conference – mostly. What I’m not looking forward to is having to choose between sessions on at the same time; there are so many great topics over the two-day conference, that for some sessions, it is going to come down to a coin toss. Ouch. On balance, that’s a good sign, but it will still hurt.
In advance of next week, my huge congratulations to the team at The Eventful Group for creating this conference. Conversations of the nature I believe we will have next week have been sorely lacking in the SharePoint space, and I commend the team for doing the work to make this happen.
