itSMF LeadIT Annual Conference & Expo, Melbourne, Australia


After many trips to Australia for the PACRIM conference, I had an opportunity not only to co-present on the topic of Business Value Dashboards at LeadIT 2014 – I also got to sit on a panel discussion on the subject of Change the Conversation: Moving Production to the Cloud.

The panel discussion on cloud computing was a great dialog from both practitioners and consultative perspective. The mixture of panelists created diversity in opinions and trends. It was an honor to be a part of and to work with such experts in the industry.

What an honor to attend the event and get to see the great city of Melbourne. This picture is of me at the conference Expo Hall.

The trip to Melbourne was too short, and I hope to get back to Australia and continue to travel the country and meet more extraordinary people.
