HR2013 is around the corner !

Wispubs (SAP Insider) is producing several SAP conferences throughout the year and the world. And of course the best conference is the one dealing with SAP Human Capital Management !

I have been involved as guest speaker for several years now, including some Jumpstart session. This year, the HR2013 conference will be held in Las Vegas and Amsterdam. After an awesome challenging year with SAP HCM and Successfactors, 2013 is full of great topics to be involved with.

This year in Las Vegas, I will entertrain a jumpstart regarding a detailed guide for leveraging SAP functionality for employee self-service (ESS) and manager self-service (MSS) as well as a session regarding Everything You Need to Know to Effectively Integrate SAP ERP HCM with Finance, Procurement, Logistics, and Customer Service !

Over the years, the speakers list has maintained a high quality level, including many skilled and talented peers such as Jeremy Master, Steven Bogner, Mark Ingram, Sven Ringling, Brandon Toombs, Luke Marson and many more.

We are delighted this year to welcome our fellow SAP Mentor Jarret Pazahanick.

Follow these great speakers on twitter as the hyperlink is provided under each name.

Many of us are mentoring other peers through our blog posts, podcasts or else. Some of us a proudly appointed SAP Mentors. I challenged you to follow these fine individuals (‘they don’t sell anything’) as they are leaders in their field of expertise. We currently have over 110 mentors within a SAP community over 3 millions peers !  You can easily spot Mentors in the crow as they wear these funky Blue Rugby Shirts.

Besides a great session event, this conference is also a great opportunity to meetup and network with peers. Informal meetup is always welcome along with your formal chance to meetup the ‘Experts’ during the Ask the Experts scheduled next week.

Along with the rich agenda, let me also point out the Insight HCM Podcast team will also convene a meetup session. (Past podcast can be found here, they are all free and await your feedback !).

As many of us are quite busy and perhaps cannot make it directly onsite, I challenged you maybe to keep an eye on the Twitter online feed (using the hashtag #2013). Multiple blog entries in real time or after in debriefing mode should also be posted on the Insider Learning network and/or the SAP Community Network.

As ‘pictures are worth a thousand words’, I ‘m also posting my pictures coverage of the event, on my flickr account under collection ‘Work related’.

I look forward to meeting you onside or in the online stream.

I wish all of us a fruitful conference.

Best Regards,

      Hey Martin,

      I'm looking forward to the event too and it will be good to meet up with experts, peers, and customers at the leading SAP HCM event. There are loads of great sessions and I encourage people to approach any of the SAP Mentors to have a chat.

      Best regards,

      Good overview Martin and I am also looking forward to my first HR Insider event next week as it has been long overdue. You have been encouraging me to come experience the "magic" for several years and glad the timing finally worked out.

      I have always been impressed with how many events and speaking sessions you do each year as I love how you share your knowledge and are such a big part of the SAP HCM community.
