Knowledge sharing and speaking
If you have a story you would like to share, either as part of your organisation or with a Partner, be sure to get involved. Members always love to hear other member stories; even when you think that others may not be interested in it, you will be surprised how many other individuals and organisations are or have been in the same boat as you and that you could be helping to navigate the world of SAP.
Don’t blend in with the crowd, stand up and be heard; it will help to increase your visibility within the SAP community and boost your networking capabilities, as other members will want to speak to you about your experiences. Our team will be happy to help you pull together a presentation and assist in any way they can to make your life as easy as possible.
As a thank you for speaking at one of our events, you will have the opportunity to attend a free speaker training workshop to help build your personal profile and increase your confidence in public speaking. You will also be invited to attend our annual conference free of charge!
Hosting provides many benefits to you and your organisation. We will help you organise everything you need and in return for hosting, you will receive one free conference pass to UKISUG Connect. As well as not having to pay to travel to the event, other benefits of hosting include having more of your colleagues attending the event and being able to influence the agenda.
Many hosted SIGs attract more members, and you could also offer the opportunity for a quick tour of your offices or factory if you feel you have something to showcase. This is always a good driver to increase networking, engagement and collaboration with other members."Hosting the HERSIG was as simple as booking a room and arranging catering, the User Group took care of the rest" -Daniel Poole, Northumbria University
If you think speaking or hosting may be of interest to you, please let us know - firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you get more involved.
Become a part of a SIG Committee
Do you benefit widely from attending one of our SIGs and want to help others to do so? Our SIGs help organisations relate with one another on their SAP journeys and experiences completely independently of SAP. The User Group works closely with a group of voluntary individuals with common interests, known as the SIG committee, to ensure that each SIG is of value to our members.
Becoming a member of the SIG committee can benefit you from both a personal development perspective and a career perspective. You can also get a much better insight into what is happening outside of your organisation as an increasingly active User Group member. It is not a huge commitment, you can meet as a group with Kirsten from the User Group to talk about what you would like to do with the SIG for the year. You can agree what you would like to discuss, what topics you would like covered and help decide on SIG locations.
It doesn't matter what industry you come from, or how experienced you are, becoming a member of the SIG committee adds value to your SAP journey.
