User Group 2018 attendees will be the first to experience a corporate event at Wisconsin’s state-of-the-art, 714,000-square-foot arena and entertainment hub, home of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Fun at the Fiserv Forum

User Group 2018 Visits the New Fiserv ForumDon’t miss a  behind-the-scenes tour of this recently opened arena and of course memorable food, drinks and music with fellow attendees! The venue, located just blocks from our office in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, links the historic Old World Third Street and the riverfront. Its design pays homage to Milwaukee’s architectural heritage and the region’s environment. The building’s most striking feature, its arched roof, overlaps the glass façade and stretches down to street level on one side.

Former U.S. Secretary of Education to Present Keynote at User Group 2017

We’re excited to announce the keynote speaker for User Group 2017, former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

Duncan served under President Barack Obama from 2009 through 2015, making major strides in our country’s system. Duncan’s tenure as secretary was marked by a number of significant accomplishments on behalf of American students and teachers, including funding for 325,000 teaching jobs, boosting the number of young Americans attending college and receiving postsecondary degrees and reforming student loans, among many others. Prior to being appointed the Secretary of Education he was the chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools.

A native of Chicago, Duncan is currently managing partner at Emerson Collective, working with entrepreneurs to provide jobs and training in underprivileged neighborhoods as a way to attack the city’s crime epidemic. He is also a distinguished senior fellow at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.

In an exclusive presentation for User Group attendees on Monday, October 9, Duncan will provide his outlook on education today. How do you inspire change and measure its impact? Learn how to evaluate changes your university implements so your campus can write its own stories of success.
