Now there is a great bunch of people! While visiting Sydney I had the pleasure of being able to attend one of the regular SMBit Pro (http://www.smbitpro.com.au/) group meetings held at the MS office.
It was a lively meeting with Alexandra Day leading the kick-off with Heroes Happen Here, Wayne Small reported on his trip to Taiwan to visit with Trend Micro and Susanne Dansey (yes, she is now an Aussie) spoke about successful UGs back in the UK. Ryan (Fuzzy) managed the live meeting feed to the rest of the world and members contributed lively to the discussion.
Many members have been with the group more than 5 and 6 years which explains the smooth dynamics and jovial interaction during the meeting. One of the agenda items covered was why you should put systemic processes in place to run your business. Good Stuff!
This pic shows Wayne delivering his "travel report". Here you only see part of the SMBit Pro group, lots of folks were sitting to both sides along the wall, quite an excellent turn out.
I must admit, I am jealous of the Skype Mouse that Wayne showed off, its a mouse phone. Check it out :)
Fuzzy managing web master duties, streaming the meeting - across Australia and to the rest of the world.
Wayne and Susanne having a chat
And gotta have a pic of the Sydney Opera of course!
Another beautiful day down under and I am still working on getting myself into the picture :)
And lastly, a parting shot of Susanne, Fuzzy and I (R to L)
