The first Spring User Group (SUG) event was held in Manchester on the 8th April at the Core Technology Centre in Manchester (a superb venue for anyone looking to hold an event in the North West). 46 people attended, which was fantastic for the first event and the feedback was all very positive. Attendees travelled from as far a field as Glasgow, Southport, the Midlands as well as Manchester and surrounding areas.

I arrived back on Tuesday the 15th after an extended Christmas break (the longest time I have been away from work since I was at school!) and less than 12 hours later arrived for the Spring Exchange 2008 conference in London. This was an important day for Cake for two reasons, so Cake was out in force with Ani, Aleksa and Jan supporting me.

Christmas is fast approaching as are a number of important deadlines. Cake is heading up the integration effort involving 3 parties for the beta launch of a central government knowledge base system. This is a culmination of 8 months work building a new platform for the applications to run and some significant new feature modules including Contact Management and Metrics. The new platform will allow us to continue to develop the system to fulfil many additional requests for new functionality to what is already a very useful, widely used system.

Des Rafferty from DeCare working out of the States paid Cake a visit recently to talk about potential partnership opportunities between the two companies for next year. The first part of the "business meeting" was to go for a beer a meal and a chat before going to see Man United vs Dynamo Kiev, where we both felt obliged to politely clap when either team scored but refused to stand when the "stand up for the champions" chant erupted! The following day Des visited the Cake office and met the team before we talked more about potential opportunities for the two companies next year. The parity between the two companies is huge and I believe this will allow us to offer a very effective and unique joint service offering, watch this space..............!!

As promised I said I would talk more about the Strategic Coach programme i have been taking part in for just over a year (http://www.strategiccoach.com/). The Strategic Coach is a programme developed by Dan Sullivan in Canada that helps entrepreneurs to be better equipped to make the most of their personal and business life. I attend a talk four times a year given by Russel who has been on the programme for over 15 years and still attends back in Canada where he runs a highly successful financial services business. At the talk you are given tools which you may find useful to use in life in general and in business as well as the opportunity to spend a day away from e-mail and mobile phones so you can completely focus on what you are doing.

My first Blog.

Cake received good news today, we have been awarded the contract to build the new National Union of Student Services (NUSSL) centralised billing system. NUSSL has been a client for over 4 years now so we are really pleased that the relationship will hopefully continue for another 4 years. The software will deal with well over 1 million transactions a year from all the student unions around the country, that's a serious amount of alcohol!
