It?s hot and humid in Houston. I wonder if it is ever not humid here. Anyway, reporting live from Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2012 (Twitter #CONV12) this week.
The turnout is impressive, lots of people here! Yesterday was primarily the Dynamics Communities User Groups DayONE event. Bob Peskin and I had separate presentations to the Customer Relationship Management Group (Twitter #CRMUG). Bob did a presentation on upgrading CRM from v4.0 to 2011 while I did one on ?Taking Full Advantage of Dynamics CRM?, a tips and tricks presentation. Great attendance for both sessions, very lively with lots of great interaction. Look for the content and follow up repeat webinars on the CMRUG website. If you are not member yet I recommend you check them out. It?s a user group by users for users and is worth joining if you have anything to do with Dynamics CRM.
The Welcome party was a big hit at the Houston Minute Maid Park. Impressive facility and I?m sure would be great to see a game there. I won?t be able to post pictures of the event, however, people were having a great time. The band Daughtry, American Idol winners, were playing some great jams.
The Keynotes start this morning and I am looking forward to hearing from General Colin Powell for Wednesday?s keynote. He has had an impressive career and a phenomenal leader and I?m sure his session is going to be great.
