As you’ve hopefully heard by now, we’re coming back for our annual Excel conference in Australia and New Zealand, with dates planned for Wellington on Apr 19 & 20, 2018. It’s hard to believe that it’s only a month away, but it’s time to make the difficult call about go/no-go decisions. And while all the Australia dates are all locked in and going ahead, the reality is that Wellington is on the brink…
We need to hear from you
I want to be clear here, we REALLY want to come to Wellington. The challenge we have is that we need to know people are going to show up to support the event. It costs a lot to book venues, flights and the like, and right now we don’t have enough people to make this work.
And we have until 2PM New Zealand time TODAY (March 16, 2018) to decide if we have enough interest to make this viable.
Call to Action
We don’t need your completed registration just yet. What we do need is enough people that INTEND to register for the Wellington edition. If you can give us that, then we’ll take it on faith that you will register. We get it – convincing the boss takes time. We want to give you that time, so here’s how you can help us…
Fill out this survey [survey now closed and no longer available so link has been removed] if you want to attend the Wellington edition of the Unlock Excel conference. All we need is a couple of pieces of information:
- Do you intend to come?
- What is the % chance you’ll be able to register?
- Your name and email
We promise that we won’t add you to any email distribution lists, we just need to assure that you’re real. The reality here is that we need to cover our costs.
Right now, we need an additional 30 people at a minimum to express their interest in attending the Wellington edition. If we can get that, we’ll go ahead. If we can’t…
What can you do?
There are two things you can do:
- Fill out the survey [survey now closed and no longer available so link has been removed] to indicate your interest
- Share this with anyone in the Wellington area who may be interested
We appreciate anything you can do to help us spread the word and make this conference a go.
Wait – Tell me more!
Sorry, you HAVEN’T heard of the Unlock Excel conference?
The conference is going to be awesome! From charting and dashboarding, to VBA, to Power Query, Power Pivot and more, we will be exposing you to the fact that Excel isn’t just Excel any more. With revolutionary changes to the product starting in Excel 2010, there is a VERY good chance that you’re still working the hard way, and we want to fix that for you. We even have 1 on 1 sessions and group Q&A sessions where you can pose your questions directly to us.
And if it’s professional development you’re after, it counts for 17.75 hours.
