4 Things All Convergence 2013 Attendees Should Add to This Week’s Agenda

While last week in NOLA was exhausting, there really is no time to rest given all the activity and announcements that came out of Convergence. While hopefully we all have some next steps that are pertinent to us and our businesses, there are four things that all attendees need to do in order to insure the maximum ROI on your time at Convergence:

1 – Tell Your Convergence Story!
It’s no easy task getting away from the office for a week, nor is a Convergence registration fee pocket change. It’s a big deal to attend, and after the Convergence experience we had last week, it’s an even bigger deal. That’s why it’s important for you to spread the word on the value of attending this event. Not only does it help your case in attending next year, but it also demonstrates to your business leaders how this event catapults the community into what’s to come. Who knows, by touting the event’s impact, maybe next year a few additional colleagues can join you as well.

2 – Listen to Wayne!
While I can tell you all day long that staying connected socially delivers benefits to you and your company, when Wayne Morris, Corp VP of Microsoft Business Solutions Marketing, tells us too, that’s even more motivation. I was excited to hear Wayne emphasize the future role of mobile and social in the Dynamics community during Tuesday’s opening keynote session. Did you get the message? Microsoft is 100% behind the relevancy of social networks in our businesses and our customers’. Jump on the bandwagon, get connected socially and let’s keep these conversations going! Checkout the most used Twitter hashtags in the Dynamics community, update your profile on the new Microsoft Dynamics Community Site, checkout the new AXUG Collaborate and GPUG Collaborate sites, or just ping @jon_rivers and I’ll help get you started.

3 – Download Convergence 2013 Presentations

Full pass Convergence attendees can download the PowerPoint presentations from Convergence inclusing the concurrent sessions, deep dive sessions, keynotes, etc. Sign in with the login and password designated upon registration.

3. Submit Feedback on Convergence 2013

Please help Microsoft continue to improve Convergence by letting them know what you think. Complete the online evaluations for each session you attended.


Great seeing everyone in New Orleans! Looking forward to connection soon and seeing you in Atlanta for Convergence 2014.
