Someone tweeted it best: "#TPCE14 is over but that doesn't mean we are done. Who is staying for the Summit?"
The Partner Connections Event (TPCE) wrapped up yesterday while across the street the Summit expo hall was in full swing setting up for last night's opening Expo Hall reception.
There was an abundance of great information presented at TPCE and I look forward to being able to share those presentations with you. I especially enjoyed learning more about the use of video in the community from Peter Matejcek, a pioneer in the world of interactive video that's now full steam ahead in helping Dynamics partners leverage this channel.
Two great keynotes as TPCE this year... The opening keynote featuring Bonnie Robertson and Pam McGee provided an inspiring, educational, and extremely interesting presentation about becoming a “Magnetic Company” and asking all the right questions, such as- “can we really have it all?” You can read more details on the keynote on the Microsoft Dynamics Community Blog.
On the other end of the event, Hal Howard took the stage to closeout the events. Hal captured the theme "Partnering for Success" with: 1) Expertise (Technical, Functional, Industry); 2) Scheduling & Logistics; 3) Budgeting; 4)Vision; 5) Coach & Counseling; 6) Training & Enablement; 7) Recommendation for Add-ons & Enhancements and 8) Quality control. A great theme to close out the event and as we head into the User Group Summits.
Thanks to all that headed out last night for the AXUG, GPUG, NAVUG and CRMUG Opening Expo Reception! We'll see you again today at Booth 835 for tonight's Expo Reception.
And one of the highlights every year for the Data Masons team is joining our fellow AXUG Summit Premier Sponsor, RFSmart, to host the AXUG Summit Premier Party. Thanks to everyone who joined us last night for the Gateway to Summit party! We truly enjoy kicking off AXUG Summit in a fun, casual atmosphere!
So let’s get going! We will see you at 8AM for the opening keynote with Steve Rizzo!
