By Delaney Freer posted 04-20-2017 11:54 AM

The upcoming NAVUG Focus conference will have 90-minute, deep-dive Microsoft Dynamics NAV educational sessions, led by Industry Experts. But what is an Industry Expert? These are active members of the Dynamics NAV community who have volunteered to share what they've learned through their years of industry experience by speaking at events, writing articles and leading webinars. Their knowledge and expertise make them trusted resources in the Dynamics community.

One of such expert presenters at NAVUG Focus is Kerry Rosvold, an independent trainer and business process consultant, as well as Owner of New View Strategies. A NAVUG All Star and Microsoft MVP for Business Solutions, Kerry’s passion for NAV comes from the 12 years she used NAV at her job as a Controller and from her involvement with the NAVUG community since 2008.  

The Dynamics NAV User Group (NAVUG) sat down with Kerry for the inside scoop on her sessions at NAVUG Focus:

  • A 12-step Program for your Financial Reporting
  • Row the boat! How to Close your Books in 3 days
Please share a “golden nugget” attendees will take away from your sessions that aren’t found in the session description online.
Attendees will learn how change is the norm and how you and your company can become more efficient and more relevant by using different business practices.

What job roles will benefit most from your sessions and why?
Controllers, CFOs, Accounting Managers and any person from the finance and accounting departments who is interested in strategic improvement and efficiency.

Aside from speaking, what you are most looking forward to about being part of NAVUG Focus?
I love getting a chance to be with my tribe! Getting time to geek out with other people who LOVE NAV is one of my favorite things each year.

What’s on your personal conference agenda? Share any sessions you don’t want to miss!
How to Create your own Role Centers presented by Andrew Good. This is a must attend session. Role Centers are horribly underutilized and the more we learn to leverage ways to make our daily work more efficient, the better we get.

Are your Users Happy with Dynamics NAV?
 presented by Holly Kutil. This session addresses the issue of user adoption, crucial to successful use of NAV at any organization.

What is your best advice for Dynamics NAV users attending NAVUG Focus?
Attend every session and network, network, network when you’re not attending sessions. Every thing you learn, every conversation you have, and every person you meet is the value you get out of the conference!

What are you most looking forward to about visiting St. Louis, MO?
Taking an extra day to visit the St. Louis Zoo, recently awarded America’s Top Free Attraction and Best Zoo.
