A busy month that included a couple of Corporate Conferences and a couple of cruises in the South Pacific.
The main corporate event was the Next Generation CIO Summit for GDS International, held on the Gold Coast. Talk was still very much about Cloud Computing but more focused on the fact that it was a fact of life, rather than the big thing that it was 6 – 12 months previously.
I was the Corporate MC for the event, keeping it all On Track and On Time and injecting a bit of fun. The event was held at the Radisson Resort, which was perfect for the numbers we had. Rain did interupt the “speed networking ” session we ran on the first night but it was beautiful the next enabling us to dine outside around the pool.
My cruise assignments were pretty standard South Pacific fare but I did get to hang out at Chantilly’s on the Bay in Port Vila for an extra night, where they lodge the Guest Entertainers. A great spot as you can see. Free WiFi by the pool and bar. The foods not bad either, but I keep returning to the Waterfront Bar & Grill at the other end of town for their version of raw fish salad “ika mata” washed down with Tusker beer.
