SDL Innovate 2013

#01This week in San Jose SDL Innovate 2013 is starting and it looks to be a fantastic event with some 400-500 attendees.  This is actually going to be the first time I have attended Innovate and I’m really looking forward it.
You can find the full agenda and a link to the SDL Innovate mobile app for android or apple here – all the good stuff.  The app is really good because it helps you to organise your time at Innovate through a packed agenda… note that the menu bar at the bottom can scroll to show you even more features!
In fact the problem for me was deciding what presentations I wasn’t going to attend… they are all really interesting and show the breadth of technology that SDL has to offer which is really second to none, and how many of our global customers put it to good use.  So just browse the agenda and save to your favourites.
If you use twitter you can follow all the news around this event by following @sdlinnovate or see what everyone else is talking about with #sdlinnovate
The theme for the conference is of course “Global Customer Experience Management” but I am going to be delivering three training sessions on SDL Trados Studio with a focus on how to use Studio in an Enterprise environment.  The sessions are only 45 minutes long so each one is different and I’m going to share the content here in case you’re struggling, like me, to decide how to fill your agenda over the two days.

Although I have already planned my agenda to watch as many of the interesting presentations as I can I will be there for the two days to help anyone with any questions.  So if you are coming to Innovate this year and want to spend some time discussing anything in addition to the things I intend to cover in the three sessions on Friday please feel free to drop me an email and let me know… or just come and ask on the day.
See you later this week!
