I recently came back from an MVP Global Summit in Seattle, and touring cities speaking about IT. You definitely gain deep insights, solutions, practical experiences, when you network and share ideas with your colleagues—in fact, this is the one constant I always get from attending events. Moreover in interviewing nearly 300 technology experts since 2001, this idea of networking and solution sharing is something they all “highly” recommend. That’s why I wanted to bring direct your attention to INFORMATICS Halifax--INFORMATICS is the premier event to be at this year!

In working with computers since 1965, I discovered it is essential to collaborate and keep yourself current with the latest trends and technologies. What are the top IT issues and how can you use technology solutions to make your job easier? What are the best practices that you must know? What business and technology roadmaps and key tips can you learn? How can you bootstrap your career?

The quickest way to obtain this essential value to sustain and rapidly grow your career is to attend at least one key conference per year. INFORMATICS is the conference that I’m recommending.

You will also find guest bloggers at INFORMATICS! Why not enter into a dialogue with them? I would like to see you there! Share your story, and let’s do an interview. Tell me your challenges and we can blog a solution. So, I’ll be blogging about INFORMATICS at INFORMATICS. I would like to hear from you. Catch me and the other guest bloggers there!
