In case you've missed all the announcements, this week is INFORM2015 (brought to you by the wonderful people at AusLUG).
As with past events, I'm really looking forward to 2 days packed full of fantastic sessions conducted by speakers from around the globe. High on my list of must-not-miss sessions is the keynote on Thursday morning to be delivered by two legends of the IBM ESS (nee: ICS, nee:Lotus) community in Ed Brill (Vice President, Social Business Cloud Services, IBM Office of the CIO, responsible for driving IBM's social business transformation) and Jack Welch (IBM's Global Director, Social Collaboration Sales, which includes IBM Notes & Domino and the SmartCloud for Social Business suite of solutions). I'm really looking forward to hearing how IBM is transforming it's business through the use of (it's OWN) technology, and the future direction for IBM's Collaboration Suite of applications.
I've been lucky enough to have two sessions accepted for this event, #AdminBlast: where I'm going to share as many Administrator tips in the allotted time as I possibly can (many thanks to Paul Mooney and Gabriella Davis for graciously allowing me to use some of their content!), and #UserBLAST: Yes, my favourite topic - sharing the love for all the good stuff that users can do with IBM's collaboration solutions portfolio.

Of course, the other major highlight of this event includes the networking and social (do not miss #InformBeers! http://t.co/fTHCynW6gZ) aspects of the conference, where there will be loads of opportunity to catch up with some old friends - and new - from around the #YellowVerse. Many life-long friendships have been forged at events such as #Inform, where some amazing people come together through a common interest to Meet, Share, Learn.
There will be (HUG)'s. Lots of (HUG)'s.
I look forward to seeing you there!
