Buenos días Amigos!  It’s time once again for my Top 5 Reasons to Attend SEPG Europe 2012 on June 5-7.
You know, having been to Spain a few times, I’ve seen first-hand their legendary spirit and propensity to live life to the fullest.  So I was not surprise when Madrid was selected as this year’s gathering place for engineering and software executives and practitioners who are passionate about process improvement and learning to do more with the CMMI.
As I put together my list of reasons to attend SEPG Europe 2012, I considered that living life to the fullest was a combination of sparking ones passion (Reason #5) and consuming great quantities of useful knowledge (Reason #4).   It all comes together in Reason #3.
Drum roll please …
Reason #3: SEPG Europe is where you can share your passion with your peers.
It’s true that every SEPG conference gives you the chance to be with like-minded professionals who are just as passionate as you are about process and performance improvement.  SEPG Europe offers even more.  At SEPG Europe, you will ...
Connect (or re-connect) with international customers
We all want to stay connected with our international customers, but the reality is that everyone’s busy - and the world is a big place!  We’re solving problems and flying at a hundred miles an hour.  It can be hard to slow down and find time to spend together.  Well, SEPG Europe gives us that time.  The three day conference offers an extended opportunity to share with your customers why you are so passionate about organizational process and performance improvement, and for them to share the same with you.
Connect (or re-connect) with business partners
There’s no better place than SEPG Europe to form strategic relationships with compatible companies from all around the world.  Some day, an opportunity will arise in which you will be glad you have an international partner you can work with and trust.  By forming these relationships at SEPG Europe, you’ll form strong, personal relationships with potential partners.
What I love is that SEPG Europe offers these rich networking opportunities in addition to the robust technical program.  That means you can learn  while connecting with familiar faces and starting new relationships.
To me, spending time with quality people is one of the best ways to live life to the fullest.  I hope you’ll join us in Madrid, and show us what living life to the fullest means to YOU.
