Session: BO4449 BIM: A Marketing Effort

Joseph Joseph gave another great and well put together session. Quote: "Turn lemons into lemonade. Turn BIM into BIM-onade." In other words, can marketing turn your existing efforts surrounding BIM into new or additional opportunities?

He also stressed the importance of having a BIM Roadmap for your company. Something to share with not only internal people but clients too.

Let the AU Festivities Commence...

Wow. What a day - the fact that I was only five minutes late to my first 5pm session is a miracle. If you know me well enough, ask me about it!

The 5pm session was a top secret NDA session which I can't really tell you about.

Afterwards, I went to the blogger social hosted by Autodesk at SushiSamba in the Palazo. It was great to see so many friends. It amazed me how despite not having really seen each other much over the last year (some not since last AU), we could simply pick up a conversation like we saw each other just yesterday. Here are a few pics from the blogger social:
