STEM User Group Meeting 2014

30 April 2014

Fancy a trip down the Amazon? Interested in streamlining the preparation of regulatory accounts? Ever wondered if your results could be even better – or still worse?

All of this and more at the STEM User Group Meeting 2014, our 19th annual business-modelling event held in the tranquil surroundings of King’s College, Cambridge, UK, on Wednesday–Thursday 01–02 October. Consultants and professional modellers from service providers, network suppliers and industry regulators will enjoy their differences of context and opinion while exploring the latest techniques in business-case evaluation and service costing, capex forecasting and online delivery, with the finest intellect and the most robust debate.

The event is a unique opportunity to meet and compare notes with the leading users of our STEM visual software for the reliable modelling of business. We will demonstrate the latest STEM version 7.4 in a variety of contexts, including an interactive modelling workshop on the economics of an online retailer. At a higher level we will explore the different ways that assets are valued in a regulatory context and show how economic depreciation can be readily calculated in STEM using existing inputs. We will also present some novel examples of STEM–Excel interaction for extended risk analysis and solution optimisation.

Note: in a departure from the arrangements of recent years, the sumptuous gala dinner will be held at Christ’s College this year.

Formal and more detailed invitations will be sent out in June but you are more than welcome to register in advance. There is no charge for the event itself, but delegates are required to meet their own travel and hotel expenses. Accommodation can be scarce in this popular university town, so book early to avoid disappointment.
