On 22nd September, David Terrar and Richard Messik are holding a Cloud Advocates event at Mimecast’s offices in London. I was there a few weeks ago, recording the company’s CFO talking about cloud accounting using NetSuite.

The event is aimed at professional accountants looking at cloud computing. It promises to be enlightening.

Here’s the menu of activities – which count towards CPE/CPD:

9:30    Registration, Coffee and networking

The event is free and can be booked here.

I’ll be attending virtually via a Skype link, delivering a new presentation based on my CIMA discussion. Attending in this manner will be a good demonstration of the strengths and weaknesses of some current technologies.

As usual, I’ll post the presentation to Slideshare.
