Tracking the tracks at Tech Ed New Zealand


Women in Technology dinner at Tech Ed New Zealand 2007

, posted: 24-Jul-2007 09:09

Microsoft New Zealand will be running a Women in Technology dinner at Tech Ed New Zealand 2007. This is the first time this event is run, and after some feedback it seems Microsoft has decided to open this up to people not going to the main Tech Ed event as well.

The Women in Technology dinner will have a special guest speaker for this session only.

If you are going to Tech Ed New Zealand 2007 then your entry to the Women in Technology session is free. If you are not going to Tech Ed you can attend by contacting teched@avenues.co.nz or by calling (09) 309 2440. and purchasing your ticket, at $80.

Keep an eye on this blog or check Darryl Burling's blog for more details.

oh dear god.. is that the "behind the lipstick" people? i got one of their newsletter, and learned the most exciting thing to happen was someone had a baby. WTF! /me runs off to burn her bra.

I can certainly see the sense in opening it up to people not going to the main event...otherwise the two women who go to Tech Ed would feel a bit silly with that big table all to themselves...

Good one... Brenda, it's not the "lipstick" group. You are mistaken. Kev, I was told about 160 women attended Tech Ed 2006, so perhaps it's just you no looking for them in the right places?
