OTN or the Oracle Technology Network, are great supporters of user groups. The ACE program encourages people to share their knowledge and user groups are an ideal platform for this.

Over the past few years OTN have sponsored our IPA Inspiring Presenter Awards and I am glad to say they did again this year.

Oracle Speakers:
    Tech      Grant Ronald
    Apps     Nadia Bendjedou

UK Speakers:
    Tech       Jonathan Lewis
    Apps      Graham Oliver

1st Time Presenters:
    Apps      Duncan Casemore
    Tech       Peter Raganitsch

Overseas Speakers:
    Apps       Andy Donovan
    Tech        Connor McDonald

2012 Judging Scores 
    Overseas Christian Antognini
    Tech        Alex De Vergori

Last Year another great supporter of user groups, Mark Townsend died unexpectedly, not long after being a community keynote speaker at UKOUG, and we asked OTN that these awards were given in his memory for 2012. A great friend of Mark and UKOUG, Graham Wood presented the awards.

Another OTN tradition is the ACE dinner on the Sunday night and again they came up trumps. Great to see old and new friends coming together to support this great program. Thank you Viki and Lillian.
