At the beginning of December I will be travelling to the beautiful city of Bruges in Belgium to take part in the GroupWiseR Summit. GroupWiseR is a initiative that was started by a bunch of enthusiastic GroupWise consultants across Europe, including Erno de Korte from the Netherlands.

If you have not been to one of these before it is well worth the trip – it is a small event, 75 attendees and 25 speakers, which means that you get a lot of one-on-one time with the experts. And of course, it is in Bruges, which is about my favourite city in the world. Like Venice only less smelly.
