London based Anaplan modellers forum (with food, drinks and expertise included!)

Dear fellow Anaplanners, I was thinking of setting up a regular Anaplan modellers forum to be held after work and was keen to hear your opinions and ideas.

The initial concept would be to have an informal monthly meet up (possibly 6-8pm), where us modellers could network, share knowledge, work through real-world Anaplan problems with a technical expert and discuss ideas for getting more out of the platform within our companies.

The idea is still in the early stages however I’ve reached out to some people at Anaplan and they’ve kindly offered to help facilitate by providing the Anaplan expertise, space for the sessions along with food and drinks. (I am aware we have the User group coming up on 27th November however it’s not a regular thing and it’s during work hours so can be difficult to attend).

So that’s the idea – now it would be helpful to hear your views – including:

  • Would you be able/willing to attend an informal evening forum?
  • Would you find this type of format/content helpful?
  • What else would you want to include in the agenda?

Please post any constructive ideas, suggestions or opinions here.

PS: Just to be clear I don’t work for Anaplan and this forum wouldn't be about promoting it - the aim here is to have a group run by modellers for the benefit of modellers! 🙂

Apologies for all the emails - has anyone got items that they want to add to the agenda for the Modelers Forum Meet up (19th March 2019)?

How do people juggle BAU - e.g. adhoc minor enhancements, calls for advice etc - alonside managing major implementations?

Sorry - that's my suggestion for an agenda item.

Hi Yugnesh

 

I'll not be able to make the meeting tonight unfortunately.  Sheena will be along to represent EDF Energy though and will feed back.  If there is any possibility of opening a phone line to the room then I could still dial in.
