Gerry Brimacombe (Sector Learning Solutions) will be presenting "Business Analysis for SharePoint Development: Some Simple Techniques"

Gerry Brimacombe has a B.A. in Computer Science and a Graduate Certification in Project Management. He has worked as programmer, systems analyst, business analyst, project manager, program manager, and board member and now applies that experience to developing courses and SharePoint sites for Sector Learning Solutions clients. In this 45 minute talk, Gerry will present and discuss some of the simple tools Sector uses to quickly capture client needs, and translate them into happy clients with happy SharePoint sites and happy users.

Colin Owens (Camacc Systems) will be presenting on "How Camacc Systems uses SharePoint to improve Customer Service, improve field tech productivity and cut costs"

Brief introduction to talk.  Colin Owens is an MCSE and graduate of BCIT and UVic.  He is a former Business Manager, IT trainer and currently the IT Manager of Camacc Systems Inc.  As a former tech support worker he witnessed and understood the frustration of field personnel waiting on hold to get technical support from Camacc staff and the frustration of Tech Support staff having to spend so much time providing technical information to techs in the field.  SharePoint provides a cost effective way for all service staff to access and maintain a single repository of information in the field or at the office by web browser or iPhone.

If you are interested in speaking at a future event, please contact Sean Wallbridge @ itgroove
