“Attending UKOUG events and being on the listservers has given myself and colleagues the opportunity to learn from others and to share our experiences and knowledge of the products we use. I have built up a great network over the years which has directly led to saving time, money and resources through knowledge gained, getting free hints and tips from other members, as well as free consultancy advice, that I have been able to use to solve issues back in the office.” Sandra Knight, Cambridge City Council

Look out for the colours on our delegate badges to get you talking with other attendees. Blue - delegates first ever SIG/Forum, Yellow - non members.
The benefits for novice or intermediate professionals are tremendous as our events provide background strategies and real life tactics, as well as networking opportunities.
For advanced professionals it's more about passing on knowledge, keeping up with the latest technology and techniques, expanding personal networks and reconnecting with peers.
Many of our events provide exhibition space for you to learn about the solutions available to help you streamline your processes and increase your success.
"A very relaxed, informative and good networking day. There was the right mix of presentations and network opportunities. The whole atmosphere was transformed by breakout groups which got similar experiences of people talking. The barriers were instantly broken down. It was good." Anonymous, SIG attendee
Additional value from presenting at events
Take your attendance at an event to the next level and present.
We encourage our members to present and share their story with the rest of the community as everyone agrees sharing experiences is the best way to learn.
Many of our events are flexible enough to allow for time slots from as little as 10 minutes up to an hour. You can even use a flip chart if you're not keen on PowerPoint slides!
