The Mastering BusinessObjects 2009 conference was held in Manly, Sydney this week. The location was stunning – Australia has some of the best beaches in the world, and thanks to Pete Collett, who lent me a surfboard, I was able to catch a few waves at day break before heading back into the waterfront conference hotel to deliver my keynote presentations.
The two-day event had a packed agenda, including great keynotes from Dave Rathbun of Integra Solutions (“To Infinity and Beyond”) and Peter O’Donnell, Lecturer at the Centre for Business Intelligence and Decision Support Research, Monash University (“Business Intelligence System Interfaces: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”).

I also particularly liked a presentation by Steve Bennett, formerly Head of Business Intelligence and Analytics, ING Direct Australia, (“Crystal Ball Gazing at ING Direct”), now CEO of the The Business Intelligence Group, and founder of the excellent Australia-focused BI blog “Oz Analytics.”
I delivered three presentations – click on the links below to go to separate blog postings about each, and downloadable copies of the files.
