Wednesday started with an EMEA breakfast at Fairmont hotel and an interview. Then very briefly to meet Jean-Pierre Dijcks (thank you JP!) and off to the meeting with Mark Hurd. It is not unusual I meet him (we usually have a brief meeting during the OOW) but what made this meeting special was that firstly I gave him a copy of my book and secondly he tweeted about our meeting. How cool is that!


I am an Ambassador for EOUC (EMEA Oracle Users Group Community) and in that role I have this wonderful chance to meet Mark Hurd. Thank you, Mary Lou Dopart, for organizing these meetings!


After all this excitement it was time for a lunch with our local Oracle and one of our customers. Then meeting Wendy Rinaldi from Oracle Press and the super talented and wonderful Mike Dietrich. Thank you, Mike, for your help and advice!

And the guess what…parties again 🙂 First my favorite party: The Bloggers’ meetup organized by Pythian and OTN. I do not go to the big party (I am too old and tired to go there) so after the Bloggers’ meetup it was time for a quiet dinner with Jens Walbjorn from Oracle Denmark. Thank you, Jens! It was a very nice dinner!
