    Hi Community!

    This is Jo, I am helping on the Summit planning committee!

    PLEASE TURN IN ANY REQUESTS TO SPEAK (It does take a second as the form is a bit awkward this year)!

    HOWEVER, please submit your session ideas EVEN IF YOU WOULD NEED TO PRESENT REMOTELY!  

    The committee is evaluating if we need to go to a hybrid form of some in-person and some remote presentations for this event, but we won't be able to gauge the interest in remote presenting UNLESS YOU TURN IN YOUR SESSION IDEA!!! - when submitting do let us know if it will be remote!

    I, myself, am vaxxed and ready to see everyone in person, but we are highly aware that you or your employer may have reservations about attending an in-person event in our current environment.  Please be aware that the area the Summit is being held in is definitely safety conscious and DC is doing their level-best to make this an extremely fun, but safe event full of learning!

    For your session ideas, we are PARTICULARLY interested in sessions along the theme of using GP in the 21st century. So, your presentations and or chats around topics such as:

    • Using GP Remotely - safely AND easily
    • Reporting from GP remotely and safely or through the 'cloud'
    • Cloud-type integrations including Power Apps and Flow (CENTERED SPECIFCIALLY AROUND USE WITH GP)
    • Cloud-based workflows using the Power Platform (CENTERED SPECIFCIALLY AROUND USE WITH GP)
    • Power BI Specifically with GP
    • Emailing from GP
    • Paying Vendors through ACH with GP (How-To, Best Practices, Short Cuts, etc.)
    • And just anything else you would like to present on, both from either a functional OR technical view point. 
    We also need tons more sessions around GP Functionality, particularly in these areas:
    • GP Project Accounting
    • GP Manufacturing (HOT)
    • GP Field Service
    • GP SmartLists (GP Only - no third party)
    • Excel Refreshable Reporting (out of the box, no third party) 
    • GP Integration tips and tricks with all of the common tools - SmartConnect, Integration Manager, Macros, eConnect
    • Emailing in GP
    • GP Payroll (HOT)


    Bear in mind DC are still determining the best methods for remote presentations, but EVEN if you will be there in person, do submit some ideas around #DynGPInthe21stCentury!

    NOW LET'S SEE YOUR SESSIONS!!!!

    *Reminder* Even if you do not want to present or cannot, you can still submit a session and recommend a presenter, but we REALLY want to see what it is you, our GP Users are most interested in!!!

    Thanks @Aaron Back & @Jo deRuiter for bringing this back to the front spice !

    I'm late to submit session suggestions for the NA Summit 2021, the main reason being that I'm not sure I'll attend in person.. living outside of the US is a major reason possibly, as travel restrictions still apply and may still apply this fall.. the other being still not having gotten a shot yet.
    I'll scratch my head and submit a few suggestions which I think might attract some interests.. the committee will decide if they are worth presenting. I'd love the idea of a remote presentation, which I'm sure would make a lot of other would-be presenters or participants more likely to register for this year.
    Let's get #DynGPInthe21stCentury!

    Hey @Beat Bucher! Great to hear from you! We should catch up and chat soon!

    We are working out the details on virtual options for speakers and attendees. We also have an option on the "Apply to Speak" form to indicate if you would deliver the session(s) "in-person" or "virtual".

    And submit away!... ​https://www.summitna.com/page/1807192/apply-to-speak

    Thanks Aaron,
    I've submitted already 2 session proposals and will likely bring up one or two more.
    I'll try to find out which topics didn't got much coverage last year in the hope they will attract some interest this year :-)

    Appointment setting is simply contacting a lead on the phone to set up an appointment for a face-to-face sales call Belkins'. The entire process does not begin there, though. Using their various communication, telemarketing and lead management skills, they then spend their free time evaluating potential clients, answering questions and making themselves available to any potential buyer. That is why appointment setting service providers are so important - they keep you from wasting your valuable time with people who aren't interested or are not relevant to you with folderly. With appointment setting software, you can easily identify with ease who your prospects are, what their wants and needs are, what their preferences are and how you can best meet them.
