The weather was not as extreme as it was out west in Regina, leading to a stellar turnout of over 400 people for the Eastern stop of the Business Value Launch of Office 2007, Vista and Exchange 2007. I found this stop quite refreshing - as our team has not been down to Fredericton in quite a while. It turns out that there were quite a number of audience members that were in from out of town - I'd have to estimate that over 60% traveled in for the event. THANKS for coming out - it was great to have you.
Patrick Rogers came down from Halifax to co-present the keynote in the morning. It was well received to have a local resource present to the over capacity crowd. When it was our turn to kick off the IT Pro track, I had the pleasure of introducing Ruth Morton to the Fredericton crowds - she's our newest member of our team. She did a great job helping me out on the Exchange 2007 session and kicked off a solo SharePoint and collaboration session after lunch. Way to go Ruth!
Thanks for having us Fredericton! It was nice to come back home.
Last stop - QUEBEC. Taking off in a couple of hours, gotta run.
