Eloqua Expert looking for a new job!

Some of you may know, me, other not.  My name is Greg Staunton and I have been using Eloqua on and off since 2001. Arguably I was possibly Eloqua's first European user since I started on the tool back in 2001 when program builder didn't exist, datacards were a figment of the imagination and Eloqua had an integrated chat module! I have risen through the online marketing ranks over the years from a lowly internet marketing executive to being the General Manager - Marketing Automation for an Eloqua Partner in London. Along the way I have also worked extensively on two other platforms, indeed even working for one of Eloqua's major competitors as a product/strategic consultant. I've done work for a number of different clients ranging from B2C companies such as of 888.com, British Gas, Euro Star, etc to the likes of Sony Professional Services, Oracle, Eaton Electrical, etc.  The type of work was anything from mundane day to day activities, right up to solution architecture and delivering bespoke marketing solutions and extended nurture campaigns that included all sorts of different on and offline communications, all fully integrated under one roof. Most of my career has been spent on client side, I was an Eloqua doer, not a marketing agency budget holder all the way - That is I've always rolled my sleeves up, got under the bonnet and made it work! I have spoken at a number of Eloqua user groups as well as B2B marketing magazine's main event about the things I got up to.  Eloqua even have a case study about some of the things I got up to that lead a previous employer becoming runner up in a Markie award - Here is a link to it. I decided to take some well earned time off and I've been travelling around South East Asia for the past three months.  I've been delivering a pro bono marketing automation project whilst out here but I'm now getting to the stage of being about ready to return to work. If anyone out there is looking for an expert, please PM me and let me know what you are looking for, I will send my CV on request...  Location is unimportant, it's the job that counts!
Greg - good luck with the search. If only we were hiring now......  whoever grabs you is going to be very lucky!
Thanks Eytan!  You never know, our paths my cross in the future some time!

Does this group meet for users meet

Hi ,I just wanted to find out if there is a group meeting anytime soon.
Hello, Jude! Let's pretend it didn't take me over a month to reply to this message.  This group does not meet on a regular basis, but it should. We have TONS of Eloqua users in Texas. I'm in Austin and would be happy to help coordinate a meetup? Not sure where you are located or if this helps, but I'm crossing my fingers. If not, hopefully it provides some inspiration to other Texas cities to host a meetup.  We have some options... formal / informal (happy hour vs. meetup at an office). There are pros and cons to both. I say since this is our first meetup in awhile, we keep it informal and meet at a pub? I'll start a poll in the group and see if we can get something organized! (This would be a non-Eloqua event, meaning not paid for by Eloqua even though I am an employee. I'm just an over-achiever who likes to socialize!) Important note: If you are looking for something more 'official', Austin will be on the Eloqua Road to Revenue Tour in September, so be on the lookout for invites. You can request to receive information as the date and agenda are released by visiting the Road to Revenue website.)
