My notes are as follows:

  • Room leader for track
  • 10 tracks
  • Speaker introductions
  • We get a packet with bios
  • Speakers arrive 10 minutes early
  • End at 40 minutes

I was track chair for hybrid analytics one day and the next day for SAP Analytics Cloud. I agree with what Chris Rae said about his role as track chair – you attend sessions you normally would not think of attending. See the MasteringSAP Podcast
