Belgium Breakfast Briefing

IMG_0254 Another fun day but this time with our Belgium customers. 

As I travel around I learn so much about the different processes for creating, delivering and reporting on assessments.  I feel very lucky to have so many people share their ideas with me.  I can’t wait to have some quiet time to distill this all into a paper that might be useful for our community.  Wish me luck in finding that time soon.

IMG_0256Amongst the 30 or so customers we had KU Leuven (oldest university in Europe looking after about 70,000 students) and SWIFT (the banking network that handles most inter-bank money transfer messages) present. 

I am constantly impressed by the innovation, creativity and the attention to detail of our customers and today was no exception. 

Hopefully some of our friends will be posting some of their solutions to the wiki. So watch out for field validation with jquery, new integrations and jsmath solutions.


And it wouldn’t be fun unless we shared a great photograph of  our “Questionmark Angeles”!

Now off to Paris for even more fun!   Au Revoir!

London Breakfast Briefing

imageIt’s Wednesday it must be London! 

Today we’re presenting to about 60 customers, and a few prospects, at the Microsoft briefing center in the Westminster/Victoria area of London.  This area is close to Buckingham Palace and was my “territory” when I was a service engineer in my 20’s.  I used to fix banking terminals in this area when a 5 Mbyte drive was the size of a filing cabinet! 

It was nice to be back in the neighborhood and seeing my old banks still there but with probably more processing power and memory in their back office than their data center had all those years ago!

imageAs you know I enjoy these interactions with our customers and this was was fun with lots of questions and great discussions.  SAP presented their solution (Questionmark Perception and SAP LSO) for learning and certifications.  This was wonderful to listen to after spending 2 years coaching through a number of activities for that solution.

And after my “thinking time in the desert”, I’ve been working on new ways of expressing the assessments in the learning process and it was great to be with experienced professionals to discover what resonates and what doesn’t.  More about that after I test these ideas in Brussels, Paris and some other folks around the world.

P.S. Now we’re off to Brussels for our Questionmark User Symposium. And I’m sorry that I didn’t get many pictures today at this briefing but I was distracted with so many people to learn from.
