    Hi everyone!

    We are officially less than a week from Excelerate =SUM(it) 2022, and I couldn't be more excited to experience this together with the community!

    This thread has been made so all session threads are centralized and for attendees to get to know each other!
    ➑️ I'd love to have attendees "introduce yourself" and share your: Name, Company, Title, Hobbies, What you'd like to Get out of Excelerate, and What you can Give to the community! 

    To prepare the community and attendees for the event, the session threads were created ahead of Excelerate so that you can:
    • Read each session's abstract so you know which ones to attend
    • Ask any questions ahead of the session
    • Have a place to come back to afterwards for follow-up Q&A and conversation! 

    I've added the sessions as replies to this post, organized by day belowπŸ‘‡

    Lastly, which session are you most excited for? I'm particularly looking forward to the Evolving Relationships with Change Management Methods session to learn tips and tricks on how to bring about positive organizational change!

    Thanks everyone! Looking forward to seeing everyone at Excelerate and in the Forum!

    Hi everyone! To kick things off in this thread, I'd like to share a little bit about myself:


    πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ My name is Irene and I am the Community Marketing Manager at Vena. 

    🐢 Outside of work I spend my time with my retired racing greyhound and exploring trails in Ontario with him! I've been vegan for 3 years and I enjoy exercising (like running 5Ks and deadlifting!). 

    🧠 What I'm most looking forward to getting out of Excelerate is networking with the amazing attendees, watching the amazing sessions, and even hosting a couple of them πŸ‘€

    🀝 What I'd love to give to the community is to help the Forum grow by nurturing this amazing community with great content and provide a space to share knowledge and best practices!


    I'd love to get to know the other attendees and the community members through this thread! Please share your Name, Company, Title, Hobbies, What you'd like to Get out of Excelerate, and What you can Give to the community!

    Hi everyone! Hope you're all doing well!

    My name is Michelle and I'm a Senior Training Specialist at Vena.

    Outside of Vena, you'll find me working on small home improvement projects or on the greens looking for my golf balls.

    I'm looking forward to Excelerate SUM:it and getting a chance to reconnect with some of you and meeting new people! 

    I'd like to provide the community with the tools and knowledge to allow them to maximise their experience with Vena. I'll be training at 2 of the Training sessions: Vena Data Modelling Advanced and Vena and Power BI Embedded Fundamentals.

    See y'all at Excelerate!

    Hello everyone,


    I hope you are all as excited as I am about the Excelerate =SUM(it) launching on Monday! Sarah Carter here, Director of Brand and Creative on Vena's agile marketing team.


    Outside of work I spend my time with my two boys skiing, hiking, consuming pizza and wandering the cities parks.


    What I'm most looking forward to getting out of Excelerate is meeting fellow attendees and learning growth tips and tricks from the roster of incredible speakers.

    I am looking forward to seeing all the threads pop up next week as we learn and grow together!

    Hi everyone! Following Irene's lead with the emoji bullet points:


    πŸ‘‹ My name is Olivia MacDonald and I am a senior manager of Financial Systems and Operations at Vena. 

    πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ I've recently taken up hot yoga and I am loving it (although my tune might change when the weather warms up in Ontario!). I also have a gorgeous dog named Chloe who enjoys snuggling on the couch and watching Netflix.

    πŸ’‘ I find I learn something new from every Vena Conference so I'm really looking forward to that "ah-ha" moment. I also have the opportunity to speak on the panel Contemporary Skills for Strategic Finance Professionals so I am extremely excited about that session!

    Hi everyone!!

    Can you believe it's the last day of Excelerate =SUM(it) 2022?! There are still so many amazing sessions today, including a keynote from Chris Voss on the Art of Negotiation! You don't want to miss out on that!

    Did you also know that there's a contest going on at Excelerate? By attending sessions, interacting with the photo booth, locating the sprouts 🌱 in the scavenger hunt, and much more, you earn points to enter into the contest! (Grand prize includes a new Surface πŸ’»πŸ‘€)

    A super easy way to get points is to complete the Benchmark Survey! βœ…
    Share your views on the state of finance in our 2022 Industry Benchmark Survey and get points for the contest. Find the survey in the Lobby or Lounge inside Excelerate =SUM(it).

    Head over to the Excelerate =SUM(it) event and complete the survey today!

    Thanks everyone and enjoy the last day of =SUM(it)!

    hi Vena team,

    I was on holiday for the sumit week & am enjoying watching sessions back. But I wish the settings on the videos enabled me to change the speed - there's always things I would prefer to speed through at 1.5 or 2 x. Is this something that could be enabled - ideally for these videos, but certainly in future?

    thanks

    Hi @Josh Weinberg!

    ​Thanks again for flagging that with us - I'm no stranger to playing videos at 1.5x or 2x speed!

    Great news - with the help of @Kaneisha De Leon we have updated the video player! Just click the gear icon in the video player to adjust the speed! 😊

    Thank you!​
