Facilitating round table discussions for new SharePoint conference in Australia

Another new SharePoint conference is being launched in Australia. Later this year, Share 2010 will be a conference with a different format and focus than previously seen in Australia and New Zealand, focusing entirely on the business issues and challenges of SharePoint. It's being organised by Eventful Management who for many years have been running some great events in the SAP space. I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in many of their conferences, both as a speaker and as a vendor, and they have always exceeded expectations.

The conference content and format will be driven by the people at the coal face. At the moment, Eventful is running round table discussions in Sydney, Auckland, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth with local people who play a key part of their organisations' SharePoint journey. Based on the outcome of these round table discussions, the conference agenda will be set and speakers invited accordingly. In total, more than 100 community opinions will feed into building the inaugural conference content and style of delivery.

I will be facilitating the round table discussions in Brisbane this coming Thursday. Please provide your input in the comments below if there's something you think should absolutely be part of the conference. What are the biggest pain points you are currently experiencing with SharePoint? In particular from a business and change management perspective? What format would you like to see sessions delivered in? I’ll make sure all your comments and ideas are taken into consideration.
