The 2008 Australia Partner Conference has come and gone and I've explored another part of the country, this time Port Douglas!
Congratulations to all of the award winners, especially Dataract and Hyro for the ISV Software Solutions and Innovation Partner of the year respectively.
My ISV pre day
I received some good feedback from my ISV pre day, although would have liked a few more people. Huge thanks to Joseph Najem, who is a Private Equity, Corporate Advisory and Finance guru and presented a number of workshops around setting up internationally; overcoming the challenges for growth and best practice. Joe met a number of partners during the conference including our MD... which you should ask him about as it's a good story.
Next year, I'd like to incorporate the pre day content into the conference itself, perhaps as a stream. This will also help to prevent any competition between the other pre days, like Business Intelligence.
Software plus Services sessions
Lots of talk about Software plus Services during the conference. Lots of new Go Do's.
Hat tip to Simon Guest and PhilMe for their help and contribution.
NextWeb session with Michael Kordahi
The Delicate Genius himself presented 150 slides in 40 minutes, Michael Kordahi who also presented in the keynote. Many of you asked where you can get hold of the MSCUI Patient Journey Demonstrator... more details on his blog.
