Next Stop - San Diego and KAZOOcon

With a name like that, how could you not want to be there?

This is my first time attending this event put on by 2600Hz, and I’ll be part of an analyst panel on Wednesday at 11:40, along with BCStrategies colleagues Blair Pleasant and Phil Edholm. Details can be found in the Event Calendar section of my website, and if you want to follow along, my twitter handle is @arnoldjon, and the event hash is #KazooCon19.

I’ve got yet another bi-coastal week ahead, so my travel plans need to be well-organized. Am flying to San Diego tomorrow morning, returning Thursday night, then flying to NYC Friday morning with my partner for a family gathering, back Tuesday night. Oh boy! Will try to dip my toes in both oceans, and if so, I’ll let you know which one is colder.


Next Stops - Toronto and Niagara Falls

No travel in May, but I have four events next month, including two next week. Happily, both are close to home, and since they overlap, I have the luxury of being able to attend both. As you may know, since I make my living largely from the US, I’ve long noted how few industry events there are here in Canada. It can be a full-time job hopping from event to event in the US, but I can count on one hand how many Canadian events there are for me to attend. Wouldn’t you know it, but there two happening at the same time next week. Life’s like that, and am really looking forward to both.

On Monday, I’ll be taking in Day 1 at the Canadian Telecom Summit. This event has long been the biggest and best industry gathering, and it’s moved to a bigger site now, which is always a good sign.

Then on Tuesday, I’m driving a bit further west to Niagara Falls for Day 1 of the MISA event. This is where IT buyers from municipalities gather to learn the latest on many fronts, including technology. There’s a bit more back story to this, and you can read that in the Event Calendar section of my site, where you’ll also find links to both events.

What a Restaurant Can Teach You About Collaboration - My Latest on No Jitter

Wow - been almost two weeks since my last blog post! Let’s just say I’ve been pretty busy writing and getting some new projects going. Also have four June events starting Monday, plus a personal trip that month, so it never ends.

With that said, my latest No Jitter post is running now, and as the title suggests, it reflects my unconventional perspective on collaboration. If you attended Slack’s recent Frontiers event, this will make perfect sense; otherwise, you’re just going to have to read it to find out for yourself. After that, sharing would be great, and your thoughts would be welcome as always.
