I just realized it’s almost April! That means that soon I will fly to Las Vegas for my very first Collaborate! I am really excited about this! It will be a busy week.

I will give the keynote at the Women in Technology Luncheon

Apr 11, 2016 11:30 AM–12:30 PM, Mandalay Bay D: An Unexpected Journey: Charting a Career Path in Oracle Technology.


Then I will be one of the panelists, together with Michael Abbey, Anton Els and Roopesh Ramklass, talking about communication.

Apr 12, 2016 9:15 AM–10:15 AM, North Convention, South Pacific D: Communications – the Good, the Bad, and the Best.


And I will also give two talks about Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (the tool of which I have written a book http://www.amazon.com/Oracle-Developer-Modeler-Database-Mastery/dp/0071850090):

Apr 12, 2016 1:00 PM–2:00 PM, Palm D: Managing the Changes in Database Structures

Apr 14, 2016 12:15 PM–1:15 PM, Jasmine B: Database Design with Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler

If everything goes well (= I manage to get the books there 🙂 ) I will give away a signed copy of my book in both sessions…


I just wrote a blog post about the length of preparing a presentation. Now I can tell you that the most difficult presentation to prepare is the one about yourself! The WIT keynote is the toughest presentation for me so far. I suggest you come and attend it to see how I have managed with it 😉


Hope to see you in Las Vegas!
