CRMUG London meeting biggest ever

On 8th July we had a fantastic meeting, with 79 Dynamics CRM users, administrators, customisers, developers and partners. This was our highest turnout at CRMUG UK in over two years, and our biggest ever CRM User Group event in London.

Thank you to everyone who came along, and especially those who shared their thoughts and experiences with others, and of course we are indebted to all of our speakers. A big thank you also to Andrew Bibby for organising the social evening, where 17 of use were able to share a meal, and catch up with one another before the hectic main event.

Sessions and contact information

The track sessions in the morning had roughly equal attendance, addressing the business end of our audience as well as the techies. Slide decks will be posted by speakers on www.CRMUG.com in the coming days. For those of you who missed anything, or want to reach out to any of the presenters you were not able to catch up with on the day, here is the list of sessions and speaker information:

Next meeting 10th November

Our next UK meeting will be on Tuesday 10th November. This page:
http://CRMUG.UK/20151110 will be updated with links to the agenda and registration page (and social evening information) as we progress with planning things. Note this URL is simply the event date in YYYYMMDD format, so should be easy to remember, and short enough to share with others via social media and other channels.

You can also download a calendar entry from there to get this blocked out in your diary, and that has a link back to the page for ease of reference later.

Call for speakers

If you have a customer story to tell, or some technical experience you think others could benefit from, please get in touch about speaking at one of our events. We have sessions in various formats from stand-up presentations, to interactive discussions and round tables.

We are open to all suggestions for how we can best deliver great information to our audience. It does not have a to be a deep dive of something complex, or the latest and greatest features. Some of our members are quite new to CRM, so there is always someone who can learn from you what you have only just done, but we need content, so speak up!

For news and latest information follow @CRMUGUK on twitter.

Thanks again to everyone for a great meeting – see you in November!

Chapter Lead, CRMUG UK

UK Spring Prize Draw

If you register for and attend either of the two UK spring meetings and complete your feedback form, your name will be entered into a free prize draw.

The first name drawn will win a Microsoft Exam voucher donated by Adam Vero. You can use this to take any Microsoft exam for free, so you can prove to yourself and others that you really know CRM – or choose a different subject if you prefer. If you use it to take an exam soon, you can use Second Shot to retake a Microsoft Certification Exam for Free if you don’t manage to pass the first time, so this really is a great opportunity to get your first CRM qualification, or maybe complete a set if you have passed some exams already.

So it really is simple:

  1. Register for CRMUG Edinburgh meeting March 11th 2015 or CRMUG Meeting in Reading March 18th 2015
  2. Attend on the day
  3. Complete your feedback form and hand it in before you leave
  4. We will enter you in the draw.

The voucher code will be sent by email to the winner after we have collated the feedback from the Reading event.

CRMUG Meeting in Edinburgh July 15th 2015

Regretfully, we don’t have enough support, speakers or volunteers to run a separate chapter north of the border at the moment, so until further notice we will not be organising any meetings in Scotland. If anyone would like to take on the job of organising events further north, please get in touch via the comments in the first instance.

This placeholder page will not be updated further, but will remain in place for anyone wondering where the event went. Please use the short URL CRMUG.UK/20150715 to share links to this page.
