Just thought I’d give this a plug because I like the concept behind it.
Wayne Small, a SBS MVP, who runs the Sydney SBS UG (that’s Small Business Server) is running a conference – SMB Focus – in late November (23 & 24) for small to medium business IT resellers.
Wayne, who I’ve been chatting with lately (he was kind enough to lend me his video camera so I could record a UG meeting) has been running his own business for a decade or so now and understands many of the pressures and stresses that are involved.
In particular this part of the conference caught my eye:
Another key area that many SMB IT resellers often overlook is the proper work/life balance. Many of us are working extended hours and donâ€™t pay enough attention to the lifestyle, the fun and enjoyment of what weâ€™re working so hard to achieve. Weâ€™ll be including a number of aspects of lifestyle training in this event to ensure we can get a good balance across the board.
I think this is a great initiative – how often do you hear developer/IT Pro/technology conferences discuss these aspects? But it is very important.
Early bird registration closes at the end of August.
