At first i should say congratulation to all Speakers for this year.
I was thinking about the Title for this Post and many things comes up in my mind, but at the end i should say this is the best Title : What i Learnt from AU Proposal Submission?!?!?!
Let say why :
In past three years i sent many proposal and i learnt many thing that i can share with you year by year. For each year i will tell you about two condition, Before, and After proposal rejection.
In 2015 :
Before Rejection : I sent some proposals, and i was thinking everything is ok for me to be a Speaker for this event, in this year we had to make upload video from our desktop to describe about what we are going to explain in AU.
After Rejection : Honestly when i was recording that video’s I understood my language isn’t good enough for talk in AU ( Still it’s not prefect but in 2015 that was sort of night mare and also AU it’s not about English Course if i be correct it’s about unique idea and experience and workflow … ) , then i start to read more English paper and listen more, but because always i was busy, i hadn’t any time for study English. Also, i said maybe AEC judge need more prove regarding to my words and skills, because of this and my interest for ACP ( Autodesk Certificate Professional ), i went to Dubai and i passed Six ACP Exams in Revit ARC, STR, MEP, AutoCAD, Inventor, 3ds MAX.
Also for my interest and after many years work with Dassault System software i went to India for 10 Exams in three day. And i passed all professional Solidworks and Catia Specialist levels.
In June of 2016 i was Speaker in AU ASEAN for one Title, Excellent Detailing in Wall, Floor, Roof, Ceiling. That was one of the best experience for me, that i will never forgot it, not because of the Event, because i meet many nice people, Like Phil Lazarus and Takrit Jirawudomchai, Gianluca Nicholas Lange.
In August of 2016 i understood two items of my Proposals in BiLT Asia Event was accepted.
In 2016 :
Before Rejection : OK, my perception was this, now i have many prove for my skills and knowledge, i just tried to find title from what i did in passed year. I had more experience in English language. I was Speaker in AU ASEAN too.
After Rejection : I understood this is not about the Unique Idea, Experience or Knowledge, because of many reason. ( In more than three items my proposal was hundred percent Unique that was coming from real experience )
But i make decision for sharing my Idea with others with this Blog. This was really nice experience, because i found many friends around the globe through to this blog and Linkedin.
Also i wrote two Paper for AUGI. About unique Idea in Revit for 3d Detailing and Historical Building with Inventor.
Also i changed my location from Iran to Singapore, i was looking for new Environment with cloth relation with community and people and for passing sanctions.
I was thinking i should have experience with International Company, Because they have different experience that could be more valuable from Iranian construction market.
In 2017 :
Before Rejection : I think for this year i was ready enough, anything for proving my words and experience. I had BiLT Experience with great feedback and also BIM Manager in DP Architect. Regarding to AU Blogs in this year we had this opportunity to add weight to our Proposal with Vote ( Toooo much Weight ) . I received more than 80 vote for my Revit Proposal; Golden tricks in Revit. And more than 70 Vote for Re Invent Revit: Inventor for Revit Users.
Honestly around 8 of votes that was coming from my laptop and mobile phone and four of my friends.
After Rejection : Currently i’m shocking, i’m thinking i am really stupid for sending Proposal in AU Vegas. Maybe in next one or two weeks i will forgot this sense.
But, let’s see what is Autodesk Respond to me in each Year after i sent more than 10 proposal in three year.
You can see what i received every time for rejecting my proposals.
Also you can see my blog views jus in four weeks i sent some post regarding to my proposals:
How i should add weight?!?
But i have one question from those people who are judging about the proposals:
Do you believe to below words ???
( AU selection is based on the strength of an individual proposal, a speaker’s past conference experience or industry expertise, and the collected feedback of Autodesk employees and AU community members. It’s the combination of these factors that shapes AU’s selection process.. )
I can’t say anything ……………
