Hey, my name is Katarina (Kati) Fischer and I am the SAP Mentors Program Manager. Today, I give you access to my private diary. Please join my journey to SAPPHIRE NOW 2018!
In this diary, I write down my excitement for SAPPHIRENOW and give you countless reasons why you should be excited too! Want to meet SAP Mentors at SAPPHIRENOW? Continue reading as I share with you SAP Mentors sessions and activities rundown that you can’t miss!
Dear Diary, Is SAPPHIRE now the right event for me? Yes! Looks like! How do I know? I used the new interactive tool to select my role and access how I can personally benefit from attending the event. Very nice tool!
Dear Diary, Whowhooooo… I am going to SAPPHIRE!! ! I have to book a flight and hotel for Orlando. I read all the material and found something interesting on the page
I think they used either me with my sunglasses and photoshopped the SAPPHIRENOW tagline into the glasses, or it is our SAP Mentor Susan Keohan. Compare this! What do you think?
Anyways, I need to make sure that I pack my sunglasses!

Dear Diary! I am so glad we have the survival guide from Tammy Powlas. With her insights on SAPPHIRENOW, I am ready to attend the event like a champ! ?

Dear Diary! I had a look at the of keynote speakers leaders and special guests #Scream!!! Jon Bon Jovi (I wanna perform with the SAP Mentors Jam Band the Song "Summer of 69" with him, do you think it’s too much dreaming?)
I love skiing and have to meet Lindsey Vonn! Especially since I read the 10 facts about her in the Esquire Magazin I admire her – did you know that she doesn’t like the cold, was bad at other sports, She’s superstitious, She’s fidgety before a race, She wants to compete against men, Her dogs have their own Instagram Vonndogs … LOL Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux who say "Hockey isn’t just for boys" – yeah that’s the way to go!
And last but not least Amy Purdy who is such a great fighter, she became a professional snowboarder despite losing both her legs to meningitis. I love her TED Talk. This all sounds really interesting and encouraging!
Dear Diary, Gooooooood Morning – Oh my, there are so many interesting sessions going on and so many meeting – I have to build my agenda by selecting the contents that are most valuable to me. I think I am going to send this agenda to myself and share it with my colleagues. I was so curious and wanted to know how the show floor will look like. This year they have a 3D show floor map that will help me gain an overview on what will be offered.
But Coffee first!
Dear Diary, Maaann, I never win anything! But this time I have the feeling I could! As I browse the SAP Community I am participating the online SAP Mentors Treasure hunt that happens right now on SAP Community. Cool gear to win!
Cross your fingers!
Dear Diary, I am so proud of the SAP Mentors leading sessions at 2018 ASUG Annual Conference, co-located with SAPPHIRENOW. SAP Mentor Tammy Powlas did a great summary, SAP Mentor Magic Sessions for your Consideration at #ASUG2018 #SAPPHIRENOW @SAPMentors. I am thinking about registering today for the ASUG Conference – shall I?
Ok I did some more investigation on ASUG and reviewed Tammy Powlas blog, 2018 ASUG Annual Conference – Where Success Meets You #ASUG2018 #SAPPHIRENOW – I decided that this year I am going to kick off my SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference a day early by attending ASUG Pre-Conference on June 4!
I am so happy that I was able to join today’s Community Webcast "Getting Ready for 2018 ASUG Annual Conference – What you need to know #ASUG2018" hosted by SAP Mentors to learn more about it all!
And look at all the mentors that are holding sessions there – all the happy faces!

Dear Diary, I had a really strange dream. I was dreaming that my colleague Svea and I were meeting with Justin Timberlake – here a picture of my dream.
I am freeeeaaking out!!! Justin Timberlake, music icon, actor, and performer extraordinaire, will grace our concert stage at SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference. We will have a private concert performance! I have to convince him to meet the SAP Mentors for a feedback session!!
