Jennifer and I left South Africa after the GPUG Amplify South Africa 2018 conference (click for the wrap-up link) and headed for Spain.
After a fantastic few days leading up to the conference, the first day of GPUG Amplify South Africa 2018 has finally arrived.
Jennifer accompanied me on the first day to help Angie Ryan and Katie Froeber with registration and then be there later for the end of the day when there were cocktails.
I will explain more in an article soon, but I will need to be relatively brief with my coverage of the GPUG Amplify South Africa 2018 conference. Needless to say Jennifer and I had a fantastic time in South Africa.
From my perspective, it was wonderful to have my wife along for the trip so she could meet some of the great people I work with… my “Conference Buddies”. That’s what I call my friends in the Microsoft Dynamics GP community that I only catch up with at conferences.
I managed to organise a late checkout, as my flight was in the afternoon, allowing me to sleep in for the first time in two weeks. The journey was smooth and uneventful and would make a boring blog post. All I can say it was great to get picked up at Perth Airport by my two sons and get back to the real world.
Mariano and I had two more session to present in the morning and then we would be free to relax a little.
Apart from the stress of trying to get Leslie to the GPUG Community General Session, watching the emotional rollercoaster she went on was amazing and draining at the same time. I am so thrilled that I can call Leslie Vail, MVP and GPUG All Star, my friend.
