Who wouldn’t want to attend a conference that’s named after the greatest dog-breed ever? Every year my friends at ANCILE honor my breed by offering you a chance to meet and greet each other at various locations around the globe at the ANCILE Products User Group (APUG) conference. It’s a tail-wagging time as users listen and learn from presentations by smart ANCILE products users, and ANCILE staff as well. As a bonus, the events are held in doggone awesome places, such as London, UK; Austin, TX, USA; Sydney, Australia; Moscow, Russia; Johannesburg, and Cape Town, South Africa; and Medellin, Columbia. There’s usually a keynote speaker who talks about important learning topics; and since all work and no play makes for a very dull dog, ANCILE always plans something fun, such as eating BBQ in Texas (yum!) or mingling with your new friends in a fine English Pub.
If you’re planning your training budget for next year, be sure to save room for APUG. I’m told we’ll be announcing the date and location of the 2015 North America conference soon. And if you’d like to review the happenings at the 2014 events, you can read the summaries here on my blog.
