ECIS Tech Conference 2009– Complete

I just took the family to breakfast in South End Green, and now we’re relaxing in the Starbucks after the ECIS Tech Conference finished up yesterday.

It was an impressive event– 31 of us spent a full day together at the Tech Summit, running through discussion after discussion of about 30 tech topics of interest to Technology Directors. Then we all joined the two day main conference, with Keynotes from the 2012 Olympics Committee, Ewan McIntosh, and myself and John Mikton from the International School of Prague.

The keynote and sessions by Ewan McIntosh were especially impressive, and I was motivated by him to open a Twitter account (my account name is jheynder).

I’ve been slow to update this blog since moving to London for many reason (gigantic piles of work being the main ones), but I feel energized after the talks at the conference, and I’m back to blogging for now. Over the next several days, I plan to post as many resources from the conference here as possible, including the keynote John and I did.

A modest proposal: I’d like to encourage as many of the ECIS attendees to consider going to the annual NAIS conference next year in San Francisco. If possible, it would be fun to have three objectives: spend a day talking on leadership issues, enjoy the conference, and have a meet up with our NAIS counterparts for a dinner, a meeting or both.

Let me know if you are interested!
