why there are so few women in technology fields?
On the 1st day of CRM Dynamics gave to me… a single user license

After the CRMUG Summit 2011 #CRMSummit

Ok, I can now admit I was a skeptic.  Do we really need one more conference to go to?  What makes this one THE one we need?  But, it is actually a solid conference.  And it’s not like every other conference.

What makes it different?  A few things.  You get legitimate CRM users and CRM makers in the same room talking on the same subjects.  The attendees are not afraid to speak up in sessions.  In a room of 40 or 50 people they will talk and learn from each other and the speaker.  Sure I come to these events with the label “expert” and am happy to share, but I know there is so much more knowledge in the room and that I just need to facilitate the conversations.  I don’t have every answer (and that’s ok).  The attendees take notes!  This little tidbit made my day, and it happened over and over again.  It’s a conference for learning, with a side of networking, as opposed to some of the other conferences.

The expo hall is a combined one, so you get the vendors across the Dynamics realm, not just the CRMy ones.  I wish there were more cross-specialty commingling than I saw (but in fairness there might have been and I missed it because my time there was so limited).

Event content and info is on the site linked below.

Thanks to CRMUG for having me, would love to come back.
