Oracle ACE Award

It’s an honor for me, to announce that I have been awarded with the Oracle ACE Award. I’m now the first Oracle Professional in New Zealand to receive this award, and the number 183 in the world.

Also, I’ll be a speaker in the NZ OUG National conference in Rotorua (October 21 and 22) and in the Australian National Conferences also in October (Perth and Gold Coast) this year.

The Oracle ACE Program is designed to recognize and reward members of the Oracle Technology and Applications communities for their contributions to those communities (like OTN discussion Forums, articles and papers published involvement with local Oracle community and Oracle Blogs). These individuals are technically proficient and willingly share their knowledge and experiences. The former designation is Oracle's way of saying "thank you" to community contributors for their efforts; we appreciate their enthusiasm and Oracle knowledge and experience.
• International recognition and promotion on Oracle Web sites as an "official" expert
- Profile posted in online Oracle ACE Directory
- Oracle ACE icon ( ) added to Oracle Discussion Forum profile as well as published article bylines

• An Oracle ACE appreciation plaque
• Invitations to participate in Oracle ACE activities
• Access to Oracle internal information and Events
• Free software
• "Fast-track" publication of articles and papers on OTN (with compensation)

This is my profile on Oracle Corp:
