Today I had a scheduled meeting with Cathy Baxter and Jyothi Jayaram to start the plans for my visit. We “met” using an Elluminate classroom, allowing us to talk via the audio tools, and to do some documentation in the shared whteboard.
This was a chance to cover some basics, including logistics of timing. It looks as though my time “down under” will be arriving sometime around Oct12 and leaving October 30. From what I understand, they try to tie into some start of the year professional development activities in the different territories. After reviewing some travel details, we then talked generally about alist of potential presentation topics they can share. I neeed to write them up with a little description (will post here at same time). It’s a bit of a guessing game as to what I can “bring” versus what the participants may wish to “get”, and I am eager for some local input so I can better frame my sessions to local needs, issues, environments.
