We’re back from our annual SchoolDude University sojourn to Myrtle Beach, and still basking in the positive energy of 700+ Operations professionals networking, learning, and having a great time. At SchoolDude, we look at this experience as a time to recharge our batteries by getting to talk with Dude Nation face to face. And this year, we had a lot of new and exciting things to talk with Dude Nation about:
•We saw a new focus on Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness with breakout sessions led by Industry experts: Paul Timm, James Satterfield, and Scott Wightman.
•The Leadership Summit kicked off with world-class speaker and leadership coach, Bill Sanford of Bell Leadership conducting the full day workshop, Great Leaders, Great Results. Attendees raved about how Bill offered significant ways to enhance their effectiveness in leading others.
•CapitalForecastingDirect sessions generated buzz and packed the classrooms as clients were eager to learn how the latest solution in the SchoolDude M&O suite can help integrate Capital Forecasting with their day to day operational work flow.
•39 Campus Champions attended this year and led Kickoff Sessions, Panel Discussions, and 16 breakout sessions covering topics from Energy, Facility Use, Maintenance and Operations, Leadership, and Professional Development. A HUGE thank you to all of our Campus Champions for their role in making this year's conference a smashing success for all attendees.
•Attendees saw the latest release of Dude Data (3.0) which included Monthly Trends for 35 KPIs. It was exciting to hear how Dude Data and KPIs have been leveraged by organizations around the country to help raise awareness, inspire staff, and show progress.
•108 unique sessions and networking opportunities at SchoolDude University East this year. Presentations can be found here.
Thank you to all our attendees, partners, and staff for making SchoolDude University East 2015 a memorable experience for all.
