I think it is safe to say that 2020 has thrown everyone for a loop. As we come to the end of this year it is worth spending some time planning how to set ourselves up for the best possible 2021. One way to help your organization is to attend our annual GPUC training event as a company.
Company passes allow for an unlimited number of employees within an organization to attend our event, so more than ever GPUC can benefit your entire team.
With our event being held virtually this year the experience will be slightly different, but we will have some additional benefits from this change.
1. No Travel
One benefit of a virtual event is that there will be no need to travel to Fargo, ND in November. Reduction in travel costs could afford the opportunity for more employees to attend the event. An employee that cannot travel or that only needs to attend one or two sessions can now benefit from those training opportunities without having to justify travel costs.
2. Multiple Training Paths
With a variety of session types covering GP, Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (CRM), Power BI, SSRS and Excel there is a training session for you no matter what your role. Explore the GPUC schedule to review sessions and content on our website.
3. Recorded Sessions
Although we want you to attend the event live another benefit of a virtual event is that our sessions will be recorded and can be viewed by attendees later. Something that is not available in a live event is to attend multiple sessions that our occurring at the same time, but this year you can attend one session and watch the other session later.
My favorite part of every GPUC I have attended is how bringing a group of people together creates change by brainstorming and networking how to solve problems and answer questions. It is very easy with a virtual event to become disengaged or just save the recordings to watch later, but the true value of GPUC comes from all attendees participating. I highly encourage everyone to attend their session live and provide as much feedback as you can.
If there is one thing 2020 has brought to the forefront it is the need to be adaptable to any situation. Now more than ever we all have the chance to lead the way in creating new solutions and processes that can make business run smoother even in the most tumultuous times. I invite you to register for GPUC, take advantage of the company pass to give every employee the training they need and be an active participant helping lead the way into 2021.
