Sonoma Partners at D365UG / CRMUG Summit Nashville

Today's blog post was written by Ariel Upton, Marketing Manager at Sonoma Partners.

As June arrives and summer begins to spread its welcoming arms, it may pain you to turn your attention to the fall and look ahead to October. But if you’re planning to attend the D365UG/CRMUG Summit Nashville, it’s time to take a brief pause from the BBQ to take advantage of early-bird pricing (valid until June 29th, 2017).

Summit is the leading live event for Dynamics 365 users, featuring user-produced education on how to maximize the use of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and CRM. If you and your team are undecided about attending this year’s events, here are four reasons you should add Summit to your fall conference calendar.

1. Content to benefit your business and your personal development.

We’ve all been to an event where we walk away thinking, “Well that was fun, but I’m not sure I actually learned anything meaningful.” Unlike other product conferences, the folks planning Summit go to great lengths to build a schedule filled with topics that CRM users are interested in learning about. The concentrated learning paths for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and CRM users (based on both role and skill level) include sessions focused on individual role responsibilities, industry best practices, and broader business goals. At Summit, you can engage in a tailored learning experience that best suits your individual needs. Thus, you’re guaranteed to leave with inspired ideas and actionable items that you can immediately layer into your deployment.

2. Network and swap best practices with peers.

Only at Summit does every other attendee talk the same talk and walk the same walk as you. At Summit you have authentic opportunities to meet with Dynamics peers and create connections that last after the event comes to a close. This is the perfect environment for you to talk, grow, build, and share your experiences with D365 & CRM with other users. 

3. Learn from the experts to get the greatest ROI.

Learn best practices and real world use cases from Dynamics 365 experts and Microsoft MVPs. Engage with a network of professionals throughout the User Group for Dynamics 365 & CRM who can help you uncover the best way to configure and customize, while maximizing out-of-the-box capabilities. When you compare high-quality training experiences to Summit, the ROI is unmatched. You and your team will walk away with tangible lessons to improve your implementation.


“Summit training is 3 ½ days of learning and networking. The total cost of the trip equals 9 hours of billable time. Awesome bargain!” – Joni, IT Manager, past Summit attendee
