To kick things off....a bit about me! I first joined Anaplan in August 2018 after taking a career break to travel the world. Having had a number of roles at IBM and then moving over to Gartner to work with CIO's it was time for some well deserved 'me time'. On my return I was introduced to Anaplan via an ex-colleague and my detailed research into the brand left me thinking 'I wish I had this when I worked in the pricing team at IBM..All those nights modelling pricing scenarios for our contracts would have been a lot simpler'. I have been working with our fantastic UK Energy and Utilities customers for 18 months and I love being close to an industry which is so impactful on our environmental progress. I am currently working with our marketing team to create Anaplan in Energy & Utilities based content to help to showcase the great work we are doing - please please please if you are willing to feature contact me ASAP!! My goal is to bring Anaplan closer to the utilities sector and our users closer to one another! Something fun hmmm... I drove a moped I purchased from Facebook from the north to the south of Vietnam without ever having even sat on one before. I never had a crash (thankfully) but did get a fine from the police for driving on a bridge only meant for articulated lorries...that was a scary wrong turn 😊 @Rcallend you're next...

Hello, and welcome to the very first Anaplan Energy & Utilities Group! This group has been created by Robin and I to bring together the ever growing population of Anaplanners working in the Utilities sector - that could be energy retailers, DNO's, generation, water companies and technology companies developing smart technologies on the road to Net Zero! Use the Forum to ask questions of each other, start new discussion topics and explore creative ways to use Anaplan in new functional areas. We know that as the community builds this will be a place of extreme knowledge and experience, let's make the most of it. If this is your first time here, please take a moment here to introduce yourself to the rest of the group: How long have you been engaged with Anaplan? What specifically are you working on at the moment ? What goals do you have for your participation in this group? Tell us something fun! Robin and I want to facilitate the conversation but this group is ultimately about connecting you all together so please do give as much as you take 🙂 Hayley & Robin
