This was a panel discussion on why you should submit an abstract to an Oracle user group event.
It features Oracle ACE card carriers Debra Lilley, Chris Muir, Connor McDonald, Penny Cookson, Tim Hall
You can watch it via this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeXvxmrywDs or using the embedded video below.
It is conference length, and viewing via video certainly does the discussion no justice - but I hope if you are even considering / contemplating / had passing thoughts about presenting at either a conference or a monthly meetup, you might be enthused to take it a few steps further. We can certainly help you along with this, in fact on the 15th August we have 3 presenters making their debut in a Perth branch meeting with thanks to Penny's guidance.
Abstract submissions for this year's Perth conference is closing soon.
Deadline for submissions has been extended until just after the Insync Conference - get in soon!
I look forward to seeing your submission - and if you don't have time this year to prepare one, I'll be more than happy to talk with you at the conference about what your options are for getting more involved in your local user group - it will be very beneficial to your career!
