As many of you know, I enthusiastically believe in the value that good quality Business Analysis can bring, and I love speaking, writing and presenting on this and many other topics! In a break from my normal ‘blog’ style, I have a very quick update for you. I’m really excited to announce I’ll be speaking at the Business Analysis Conference Europe, 24-26 September 2018.
Adrian Reed, Principal Consultant, Blackmetric Business Solutions; firstname.lastname@example.org
Adrian will be be presenting a workshop entitled Pre-Project Problem Analysis: Techniques for Early BA Engagement. Later in the conference he will present a session entitled And Then The Magic Happens: What BAs can Learn from the World of Magic
Attending the conference is always one of the highlights of my year, as it provides a real melting pot of ideas. It’s a great place to meet other BAs and exchange knowledge. There are fantastic presentations from real-world practitioners, and there’s also the opportunity to relax and chat over a beer (or two) after the conference has closed. If you haven’t been before, I’d highly recommend taking a look:
And if you’re on Twitter, you can keep tabs on the preparations for the conference (and the conference itself) using the #BA2018 hashtag.
I hope to see you there…
