I've spoken in the past about EtQ's annual User Conference, mostly about how beneficial it is to our customers and how much knowledge is shared. But what I never get to mention is that it completely exhausts me. As one of the organizers for the event, it is like planning a wedding - every year. So in the months, weeks and days leading up to the event, there is a frenetic pace in the office. This is followed by the often-surreal rapid fire of event management that ensues the whole week long. Days blend together, sessions become a blur. Lunch is dinner, dinner is breakfast, and breakfast is missing...where did it go? So, for the customers it is a fantastic, energizing and exciting event - but for me, it's a completely different kind of week.
