The Australian and NZ SharePoint conferences are fast approaching and the speaker line is really great.
I'll be heading along to be involved as well, will post some more details on that shortly as soon as I get a chance !
For more detail on AUS check here http://www.sharepointconference.com.au/AU2011/SolutionPages/AllSpeakers.aspx
Also for NZ http://www.sharepointconference.co.nz/NZ2011/SolutionPages/AllSpeakers.aspx
Definately worth attending if you can.
