Following last summer's John Galt User Conference, many customers reached out to say how productive and energizing the experience had been for their team. Atlas Planning Suite users flew into Chicago from across the United states and across the oceans. Teams learned more about the software they use every day, but more importantly they exchanged ideas and best practices across industries and with the Atlas product team (watch a recap video of the 2016 John Galt User Conference).
Unfortunately, for as many users as attended the event, even more teams were unable to fit a multi-day trip into their busy schedules. This lost opportunity got us thinking about the best way to grow a dynamic and productive community for all of our customers and user base. It quickly became clear that we could help include all interested parties by reducing barriers to entry.
To that end, we have three announcements:
John Galt regional user group events will take place across the United States in Q1 and Q2 2018.
These events will be free to attend. Customers pay only for their own travel.
Each event will fit into a single day, making overnight lodging optional for many travelers.
In the spirit of the 2016 user conference, these regional events will facilitate direct interaction between teams that use the Atlas Planning Suite. The events are about productive networking, learning from each other, building new best practices, and bringing home action items. John Galt consultants and customer advocates will facilitate conversations, present information about the direction of our products and services, and take feedback.
We are working with customer partners to bring events to the following regions:
The first event takes place January 19th in the San Francisco Bay Area, hosted on site by our friends at Valent USA. John Galt customers interested in attending an event in the Bay Area or any other region, please contact your account manager or sign up for a John Galt user event.
