Many of us have wondered recently about our favorite CWG photographer and world traveler, Barry Walton. Barry was a mainstay of CWG conferences and our community for decades.
With a sad heart and deep sense of loss we just learned of Barry's passing on June 3rd 2019, due to complications with a long term illness. Barry's humor, always cheerful attitude and heroic stories from the olden days of early SAP VC the 1990s will be sorely missed.

To all the people in Budapest that took the time to;
- Listen to Lawrence embarress me on stage
- Have a picture taken and provide an indiviual message to me in the Memories book.

PS... Keep looking out for this little guy;
Not sure about you, but I get frustrated almost every day trying to use various features ofthe CWG Website.
I don't know if or when the CWG Website would ever be redesigned, but I'd like to know what are the top 3-5 things in YOUR mind that you think should change.
So here's your chance..
Tell me in the comments of this blog what you want to change about this CWG Website.
I promise to complain to the CWG Board of Directors to read these comments (assuming you actually make any).
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've recognized that social media is playing a more important part of our modern lives.
The CWG will begin having a presence in some of those spaces.

At this point, there is not much content out there. That will change soon.
So there we were in Berlin.
Our Venue Committee chairperson (Nicole Krull) organized a very nice riverboat tour for us on Sunday before the meet and greet;
With a deep sense of sadness and loss, I would like to let all CWG members know that Don Cochran, past CWG President and a long time business partner and friend, passed away on February 10th, 2018, after a long battle with illness.
