Learning, Networking and Wine-Tasting : Reporting from Napa
Posted by Julie Delazyn
It’s been an exciting two days at this week’s Questionmark Users Conference in Napa Valley. The Conference is our most important learning event. It is three days filled with discussions, focus groups, social events as well as a wide variety of presentations covering best practices, case studies and the features and functions of Questionmark technologies.
Our discussion this morning on enhancing assessment security while improving stakeholder experiences was an exciting panel discussion with industry leaders.
It was interesting to see how data can be transformed into information, knowledge and wisdom to assist with security, reliability and validity. And with recent publicity around data security breaches in major corporations, and Questionmark’s focus on assessment security, it was a timely and informative session.
No conference is complete without social events that nurture new friendships and cement long-established bonds. Last night we divided up in small groups and dined around beautiful downtown Napa. Tonight, we head to one of the oldest wineries in Napa for a quintessential wine country evening with a winery tour followed by dinner in the barrel room.
Having select sessions webcast was especially interesting. Though networking and learning from one-another is an important aspect of being present at the Conference, we loved having customers from around the world join us virtually and contribute to our live-blog.
Tomorrow’s breakouts and general session will complete three intensive days of learning.
Here’s wishing everyone a good journey home and continued connections in the year ahead.
