To all my fellow Graduates who attended Prom (AKA Simply Partnership 2011) it’s time to put all the glitz and glam of Vegas behind us and our yearbooks away. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? Well, maybe for the engineers who crashed our party, or the pink flamingo girls. Put your caps back on because it isn’t over yet. Sage has plans, big plans. Big plans that involve Country Music, a 5K walk/run, hands on learning, World Class Speakers and Sage City to name a few.

Time to pack your bags again but this time for the big leagues, Sage Summit! What is this you might ask? Well it’s the best conference on the planet. So I hear. But I’m not one for learning through the grapevine. I’m honing my inner cowgirl and I’m saddling up for Nashville in fact, I’ve already registered and booked my flight. There is no easy way to get there from Canada, I’ll tell you that much.

Now you may think I’m a little eager, excited, spontaneous, but no. I’m thinking ahead, I got the early bird discount and went on a payment plan so that I can make the best out of my First Sage Summit.

So what does Sage have in store for us now? If you are a Sage partner and a first-timer to Summit, look no further.

Choosing a hotel can be a tad challenging which is why I really enjoyed reading Brad Hartz‘s blog on The Biosphere. If I’m going to experience this first hand then I’ll definitely have to stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, besides that is where my roommate wants to stay as well.

Let’s get down to business, so what Sessions do I register for? Conveniently for me, there are two partner tracks– the first is for Product Skills which includes hands on learning sessions for Sage products as well as other solutions that integrate with Sage Applications and second, Business Skills track with workshops to expand your skills in your area of expertise both of which will be extremely valuable in my business.

And what better to do after class then meet up with cowboys fellow partners, first-timers, Alumni, and Sage employees? I hear that there will be a mobile App coming out this month so we can all stay in touch while conference”ing”. Oh and who needs facebook when you have facewall. Come check everyone out.
