Our Agenda

Mingle & Network

We kick off our Q2 Meeting with introductions, some time to settle in and get to know your peers. Take some time to grab a drink, a bite to eat, and introduce yourself. 

Quantum Leap - NetSuite & AI
w/ Gerson Rodriguez
Dir. of AI Strategy & Partnerships
@Oracle NetSuite

NetSuite is using artificial intelligence to increase productivity everywhere, but this deep dive into AI is not only about what NetSuite is doing with the technology. In this session, Gerson is going to explain how GenAI is going to change everything in the Enterprise Systems space, and start to prepare you for the revolution of the robots (which he argues is already upon us!)


Take a break, top off, and get ready for another rousing session while continuing to socialize with NetSuite users like you!

NetSuite Lingo Bingo
w/ Lauren Polasek & Sirus Badiee

Join our interactive bingo game and learn some NetSuite best practices along the way. During this session, Lauren and Sirus will familiarize you with common NetSuite terms, while you connect them to industry terminology. 

Mingle & Network

In just three hours, you've met likeminded individuals in similar roles, learned a whole heck of a lot about NetSuite's capabilities, and extended your network of support. It's now time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. We close this Q2 ATX NUG with some additional networking time.

@ The Stay Put
73 Rainey Street
Austin, TX 78701

Located on Downtown Austin's Historic Rainey Street, The Stay Put swung its doors open in the Fall of 2022 with some of Austin's best friends, greatest bartenders, and all-around good folks in tow.

Housed in a restored Calcasieu bungalow circa 1920, The Stay Put is a gathering place for the community that offers a welcoming reprieve for folks to settle in and stay put. With fresh brews, delicious bevies, communal seating, an expansive patio with a heritage 120-year-old pecan tree, games, and plenty of TVs — The Stay Put is your neighborhood watering hole.

Home to The Boot Club and Flame's Jamaican Grill food truck, which serves up authentic Caribbean fare, The Stay Put is the perfect spot to hang your hat whether you're stopping in for happy hour or rooting for your favorite sports team.
