BIO

After working with GP Partners for over 15 years, I have started my own company: Training Dynamo LLC. I love helping companies get the most out of their investment with Microsoft Dynamics GP! It is my goal to help make learning GP fun, effective and economical. I am proud to work with the GPUG community at GPUG Chapter Meetings, presenting webinars and speaking at GPUG Summit and as a GPUG Academy Instructor. I firmly believe that users should be empowered to find answers, improve their processes and have access to resources to help them address their questions. I believe that GP Partners and Consultants need to have the skills and materials to help their customers get to the next level. I believe that GP Consultants need to be able to prove that they are keeping their skills current and I am proud to be assisting GP Credentialing Committee as an Item Writer for the new exams. My company, Training Dynamo, provides companies that use Microsoft Dynamics GP with highly effective customized user training and documentation. Training Dynamo also works closely with Microsoft Dynamics GP Partners to provide training materials that they can use internally and with customers which enables them to deliver quality training at an affordable price.

Medic Roundtable: Ask the Finance Experts

Join GPUG All-Stars Abra, Amber, Kyle, Shawn, and Zubin with guest appearances from other MVPs and All-Stars (present and future, aka - you!). This session is a throwback to the origins of GPUG, your Q&A session, this is intended to be a live troubleshooting session.  We encourage audience members to respond to each other's questions sharing their experience as to how they have responded to similar challenges. We want to demonstrate to you the Power of Us, to recognize that you are not alone and that your peers know how to guide you through your challenges. Our expert panel will be there as a safety net, to course-correct or fill in the gaps if necessary, but we want this to be your session. We will not have a formal presentation, we will start the session with an interactive whiteboard of your questions. We will ask all attendees to submit their questions in advance so we can maximize our time responding vs soliciting questions. If we don't cover everything during the session our panel will respond to you after the session. We are looking forward to us all working through your issues together!
