Back in 2012 I wrote this A Year in Review: Looking back at 2012 via T-Shirts and I found some shirts I received in 2014 – with a look back:
First up, SAP TechEd 2014 Las Vegas:
I did receive a nice TechEd speaker shirt. Overall it was a great TechEd with excellent hands-on sessions, opportunities for networking. I want to thank Kreszentia Kuhn for making it a great experience from an ASUG Volunteer perspective, and ASUG Volunteer Design Team Members Gretchen Lindquist and Kristen Dennis were a pleasure to work with. Mark Finnern of course did the usual Mentor magic with some great experiences as well.
I am hoping in 2015 to find ways to better promote ASUG content at TechEd.
I received a nice SAP Lumira polo shirt from the great Matt Lloyd (thank you). I also have the Data Geek shirt too.
What do I wish for Lumira in 2015? I posted my ideas at Idea Place and hopefully others will too. I would also like to see some great Lumira customer stories at ASUG Annual Conference 2015. I look forward to hearing more about Lumira too at BI 2015 in March.
Next, 2014 was the first time I attended the SAP for Utilities Conference run by the Eventful Group. It was my first time in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which was a nice change of scenery from the familiar Orlando. The event also had nice receptions on the beach. The Eventful Group team went out of their way to ensure everyone got what they needed at the event. It was also great to finally meet Steve Morris in person from Eventful. You can tell from this Animoto video that everyone had a great time and learned a great deal. Thank you Eventful and the ASUG Volunteers (especially Sue Daulton) for their work on this event.
For 2015 on the SAP Utilities side (not the conference) I hope to learn more about Key Topic: SAP Multichannel Foundation for Utilities
I am working on a project now, I have searched SCN myself for answers and while I don’t always find the answers on SCN, some of the posts and discussions make me think of another way to solve the problem. I like to think of SAP CEO Bill McDermott’s book, Winner’s Dream, where he says don’t come to him with a problem without having a solution in mind yourself. This is wise advice to follow, something which I wish I would have learned a long time ago.
Last, but certainly not least, the SAP Mentor shirt. Why did I go back to 2010? Because it’s cold out today and it’s Throwback Thursday.
I am thankful for the SAP Mentor program, for the opportunities it provides, and I look forward to what the SAP Mentor program brings to the year 2015.
Happy New Year.
