When I am done exploring all the smaller sessions I find here and want to go to something bigger I seek towards Conferences.
In the world of Dynamics 365 and PowerApps below are the Event/Conferences I would love to join in Europe if I had all the time in the world and a boss that always says yes.
But why go
There are so many great ways to learn and sharpen your skills these days: you can read blogs, listen to podcasts, watch how-to videos on YouTube, and attend webinars, just to name a few. Why bother with the time and expense of an in-person conference or workshop?
Sharpen the knife
You have to take a break from the “work” to sharpen your skills. A dull knife won’t cut a steak nearly as effectively as a sharp one.
I always return from a conference with new ideas and approaches that make me more effective and efficient at work.
By Joining a conference I get the necessary time away from my daily desk to be able to reflect and learn new, I usually have too many distractions for this to happen I daily life
Social media keeps me connected to my peers daily. However, there’s no substitution for meeting someone in real life.
Companies often have tools to display at conferences that we haven’t seen yet. Apps that make us faster, less prone to costly mistakes, or give us some other sort of edge. While undoubtedly these products can be found at their websites, it’s great to get a hands-on demonstration or be able to ask questions that are specific to your business struggles from the company itself.
The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals
There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. Other people who are willing to take time away from the office to learn something new. Other people who want to “better” themselves.
