Make sure you are getting the most out of UKOUG events

Make sure you are getting the most out of UKOUG events

29 May 2013

UKOUG events are information-rich and connect you to other users and providers of Oracle products in a supportive community of like-minded people.

We help our members succeed in their daily job-roles and provide an environment where they can problem-solve together. Our educative events help members advance their career whilst, at the same time, offer them the chance to build their professional profile within the Oracle community by sharing their knowledge with other members.

These are some of the opportunities which can only come from being a member of UKOUG.

How to get the most out of your day at a UKOUG event

Network – Ensure you talk to other UKOUG members during the breaks and networking sessions. They are using the same product as you and will probably have a handy hint or tip to share with you. Share that knowledge!

Exhibitors – Explore new solutions to some of the very problems you will be discussing at the event by visiting our exhibitors. They may have the solution your organisation is looking for.

Committee - Meet and talk to your community’s committee. They volunteer their time to compile the agendas, so share your thoughts on it with them and suggest ideas for future agenda items.

Ask questions  Make sure you ask the speakers and liaisons any questions you may have. Most presentations allow time for Q&A, so don’t let this be a missed opportunity to ask your question as others in the room may also benefit from the answer. Pose a question to representatives from Oracle who can then take your feedback internally within the organisation.

See this short and helpful article by Dave Kerpen for 6 secrets to better networking at conferences and events.

We'd love to get your feedback on this; you'll need a UKOUG login to provide it, so if you don't have one, please click on 'create a web profile' first.
