My absolute favorite time of the year is nearly here; The MCT & Educator Virtual Summit 2010 will kick off in exactly

Today, we are proud to share that we have received over 1,000 registrations and we have 750 fans on Facebook. We are burning with SUMMIT FEVER!!

Why? Well, for one thing, these Summits come along just once a year. It is traditionally a time where our MCTs prepare for new products and new courses, we brush up our soft skills and we do a LOT of community networking. This year Academic Educators are invited too and we are offering special tracks to both audiences. It is incredibly energizing to bring so have many people together. MCTs and Academic educators all over the world united by their shared passion for technology. This is where we look at new products together, this is where we share best practices, this is where we learn and this is where we make new friends all over the world.

That's right: three days and three nights, 3 sessions simultaneously at most times, we lovingly call this event 'our beautiful content monster'.

To see why we call it a monster, download the Agenda here. No matter which timezone you live in, we will be 'live' whenever you join us. All sessions are recorded and will be available later on, but nothing beats attending live. Go to the Virtual Bars, the Virtual Booths, Chat sessions, meet your colleagues and meet our speakers.

If you are an MCT or an academic educator, this event is your opportunity to prepare for new technology, to prepare for new courses. You could normally spend tonnes of time finding content, preparing for new courses can be hard work. At the Virtual Summit you can learn the latest and greatest straight 'from the horses mouth'. Join authors as present their new course, join subject matter experts who share their expertise, join my colleagues as they speak to the products that their teams work on. And as half your success as a trainer or educator is determined by what you know and the other half is determined by how you tell it, we are proud to announce soft skills training which can help finetune your skills.

Did I mention that the event is FREE to all MCTs and Academic Educators? All you need to do is register!

And if you would like to attend the event with some friends, why not request a Summit Party Kit? Just email us and let us know your plans, how many friends and colleagues you expect and we will send you some posters, T-Shirts and caps. Send us a photograph during the Summit as we would love to share your readiness event with others :-). Be quick, we will gladly send you a Summit Party Kit, while supplies last!

I will be at the Virtual Summit 2010, will you? I look forward to seeing you there!
