ICONUK 2018 Wants You …


I have been somewhat quite over the last year or so – I hope to find more time – and more content worth posting, in the near future.

Here just a quick one – I will be at ICONUK 2018 in Birmingham, U.K Sept. 13-14, 2018.

 

 

 

Aaaand .. not only will I be there, I was also asked to be part of the team and put me in charge of the admin tract. Meaning, I get to work with the team on deciding the content that will be presented in the administration tract.

I hope to get too much good content to choose from (seriously, I’d like to have that kind of headache) and hope as many admins, engineers, manager, do-it-all girls and guys submit an abstract for me to go over. If you think you have interesting content pople are interested in and can present it within 30 – 45 minutes (we have different time slots) then go to https://www.iconuk.org/submit-abstract/  and give me that headache I am asking for …

Go look and see if any of the content interests you http://socialconnections.info/ some of my favorites are going to be there and I am quite happy I am only speaking once, that give me more time to sit in the other sessions and learn some more. We get some real treats, some of the really good speakers that you usually don’t see other than at LotusPhere, Connect, ConnectED (what the hell is next????) are coming and bringing some really interesting sounding content.
Hope top see you there, you can even heckle in my session if you like!
