We’re looking for high-calibre experts for our eXtreme365 Austin conference – the premier event for Microsoft partners in the Dynamics community. Here is an outline of what you need to know to apply to speak.
Goals for our content
What makes our event stand out from the rest is the unique content provided by the Dynamics 365 community. eXtreme365 is looking for experienced thought leaders who are willing to share their unique insights on relevant topics.
This event has evolved from eXtremeCRM to eXtreme365, now addressing all aspects of the Intelligent Business Cloud. Please consider submitting session ideas for any of the following product categories.
- Dynamics 365 Enterprise – CRM & Operations (AX)
Dynamics 365 Business Edition – CRM & Financials
Common Data Model
eXtreme365 sessions are 75 minutes to give plenty of time to deep dive into topics and for Q&A. Sessions are known for:
Deep, advanced real-world technical content (300 – 400 level) for consultants, architects and developers
Real-world best practices in the Sales and Marketing track to better market/sell/compete/win more customers
Effective demonstration techniques to enhance pre-sales/demo skills
All topics should appeal to experienced partners
To accomplish these goals, we look for the following when reviewing and selecting sessions:
Unique session content – not previously presented elsewhere and not easily found on the internet.
Technical sessions at the 300 – 400 level on topics that are difficult to find in other places.
Developer sessions – Sessions that identify problem, explain solution and show code developed to accomplish it. Presenters should not violate any IP restrictions from customers. This might mean a code rewrite if necessary.
Sales & Presales sessions – Best practices in selling the value of Intelligent Business Cloud, demonstration tips and tricks, competitive selling, increasing close rates etc.
Marketing sessions – Address the topics of digital marketing and adapting modern marketing strategy to address the buying behaviors of today’s customer.
Sessions will utilize real-world examples whenever possible.
All track sessions are educational in nature. If you wish to highlight your specific product in an ISV Showcase, please fill out a request on the Sponsor Inquiry page.
