Hoping to see you while I am Down Under!

I am just a little over a week away from heading off to Australia for InSync12! My trip will begin in Melbourne and end in Sydney - with a few hours of personal fun at the end :)

Monday, August 20th starts off with a bang! I am participating in a UPK Workshop for InSync12 attendees and Partners at the Oracle offices in Melbourne. I hope to see some of you there. I will spend Tuesday and Wednesday attending InSync12 (are you attending?) as well as presenting (Reducing Your Project Timeline with Oracle User Productivity Kit.) Wednesday night, Beth and I will be flying to Sydney spending time with Customers, Partners and some of our Oracle counterparts.

It wouldn’t be complete without a few hours of fun, right?!?! We will be spend a few hours before we fly out enjoying some activities in Sydney Harbor. We are hoping to do the Sydney Harbor Boat Tour, a tour of the Sydney Opera House, grab a quick bite and then see South Pacific at the Opera House! We will be exhausted at this point but that is perfect for a 14 hour flight back to SFO.
