Technet webcasts for Exchange 2007

Exchange 2007 Technet Webcasts

(first one is today, 19th Jan at 11:30 am Pacific Time)

Bill Gates’ keynote at CES, Vegas

Watch the 1 hour, 11 minute show with Bill and his friends showing how much fun Vista is, and how cool it is that you can do all this really great fantastic wonderful stuff with a PC and an XBox controller. No real information for the business user, but I guess that would not have gone down well at this event. The whole thing can be streamed here:

Consumer Electronics Show 2007 keynote address

One of the interesting things they demonstrated was Microsoft Group Shot software – more on that here.

Microsoft Technet Roadshow

The Technet Roadshow is returning to Harrogate on 12th March 2007.
Other UK cities on the tour between 2oth February and 20th March include Nottingham, Bristol, Glasgow and London. It’s good to see some of these Microsoft “evangelists” get away from Reading and the South-east for a change, it’s just a shame it seems to happen so rarely.

To find out about other UK events, go to the Microsoft UK events search page. Most events listed are free to attend, and there are online as well as onsite events taking place.

Agenda

Agenda is yet to be confirmed, but loosely speaking will be a 9:15 registration and coffee for a 9:45 start.

After a mid-morning coffee break we plan to have two parallel speaker sessions for people to choose the topic of most interest to them. At least one of these will be followed by a related “round table” discussion of Q&A and audience participation.

After lunch we will all get back together for a further general session before “The Marco and Cass Show™” – also known as the Microsoft CRM Roadmap presentation. Given the planned release time frame for “Orion” this session alone is probably enough reason to travel all the way to London for this CRMUG meeting.

We will round the day off with an Experts Panel to try and answer any questions which have occurred to you during the earlier sessions, before closing at approximately 4pm.

Where is that again?

Microsoft UK
Cardinal Place
80-100 Victoria Street
London
SW1E 5JL

That’s a 2 minute walk from Victoria tube station, serviced by the Victoria, Circle and District Lines.

Of course I will post once the official page for registrations goes live.

What do you want from CRMUG?

Following our recent CRMUG UK committee meeting, I took on the role of “Vice Chair for Programme” so I need to figure out what things our members want to get out of our events, what sessions will be of most interest, general applicability and so on.

What do you want to “share and learn” at the CRM User Group? Are there any topics you particularly want to hear about?

Do you have a great customer story to tell, with some inspiration or ideas for others to take away and use to get more out of their CRM system? Could you / would you speak for 30 – 45 minutes about your CRM deployment project and what you got out of it?

If you have something to share, or want to find out about a particular aspect of using Dynamics CRM, please let me know in the comments so I can start to assimilate ideas to put together another great event, for users, by users!
