Hi guys,

How was your weekend?

What did you do? Let me tell you about how mind blowingly awesome mine was. This weekend we were at the #d365satdub, #365saturday event in Dublin.

The Microsoft building proved ideal for the event, lovely space for both work and play. We can’t not mention the table tennis in the middle.

Catch up time  (networking accompanied with Danish pastries and fresh coffee)

Calories and caffeine aside, the day started off with a keynote from Janet Robb, talking to us about the importance of the COMMUNITY, which was also the central theme of the event. Emotional and lovely message making us all feel empowered and appreciated exactly the way we are. There is something really inspiring in feeling that you are part of something bigger than yourself. That being said, DIVERSITY was also a key theme in Dublin. Janet put this much more glamorously that me, but my take away message from it was that we can only do our best when we feel comfortable and represented when we walk into a room. I couldn't agree more!

 

In the spotlight

With the tone of the event set, everybody was just buzzing to get on with it. But first it was pictures time.

And one with just all of the pretty ladies in the community  .. Blush

Buzzing

Then we had amazing sessions from even more amazing speakers. The only problem was that you couldn’t clone yourself and be in more than one place at the same time, which with some of the bleeding edge topics covered, you would have wanted to.

If you want to know more about the sessions, have a look at the table below.

 

#PIT

With the theme of COMMUNITY, the trendy #PIT was a great fit. All credits to Megan V. Walker for sharing it. #pit stands for people in tech, and it stands behind the idea that it's not the gender that makes all the difference. #wit in tech is a great way to find strong like minded females, but #pit is even better.  #PIT

MVP Corner

We also had an MVP corner, where anybody could sit down and have a chat with active MVP-s, get advice and insights. 

And let's not forget the lovely freebies from @Spanish_Point and Dox42, as well as ice cream station.

Marketing

Probably the only thing that I slightly missed that day and which is very dear to my heart is Marketing. We didn’t have any sessions on #d365forMarketing, however that only makes it more exciting, as it’s something to look forward to in the upcoming events. Bring on the pretty graphs with behavioural insights and automated customer journeys.
