I’m sitting on my patio in Minnesota on a cool summer morning reflecting on my continuous journey.  Filled with twists and turns, it is a never ending adventure.  All our lives are filled with ups and downs, right?

As I mentioned in my post about intentional serendipity, I have been in skunkworks the last few months, as my adventure takes new twists and turns. Today I am finally ready to share one of them as it is now public.

As many of you know, I regularly present at conferences in the US.  I’ve generally stuck to presenting domestically.  But when approached by the eventful group– they made an offer I simply could not refuse.

I am very excited to announce that I have been selected as one of the keynote speakers at the eventful group Mastering SAP Financials Conference in South Africa!  I will be travelling and presenting in Johannesburg South Africa November 13-15th.  My keynote is called Scalability, Supportability, and Reliability- 3 Pillars for your Re-Invention Journey. I am very excited to bring the lessons I’ve learned while implementing in over 40 countries to help others in their respective journeys.

The eventful group has also been fantastic in working with me to create my first ever payments workshop. Automating the Payment Cycle is a workshop to address the whole payments cycle- the payment, the confirmation, and the bank statement.  This hands on workshop will include my best tips and tricks from over 13 years of working in this space.  I will be getting my geek on in this session! I am so grateful to the eventful group for working with me to create new and innovative content for their audience.

I’m really looking forward to my first trip to Africa in November.  As for the rest of the skunkworks, I’m not quite ready to share yet, but stay tuned…….
