Gill Walker has a passion for CRM, and for sharing her knowledge. She is a CRM trainer as well as a keynote speaker and an all round Microsoft Dynamics CRM guru. She loves getting underneath the problem and making it easy for you to understand. Gill will work with you to identify what is important for you within your CRM project, so you can be confident that you will get a CRM solution that works for you - not just a CRM. Gill fervently believes that people are more capable than they let on, and loves to work with all users to give them the confidence to fly with CRM.
Gill says "I especially like making esoteric information easily understandable for everyone, even if they know nothing about CRM, technology or IT".
Gill has been living and breathing CRM since the early 90's. Her first experience was developing a solution for call tracking when working on a support desk that had nothing other than paper - and not much of that! Then she wrote a Microsoft Access solution which ran her training business. This training led to being invited to lead the training team across Europe for Microsoft while they deployed Clarify and Siebel - before both of these solutions were swallowed by other vendors. This was followed by a few Clarify projects, which also brought her to Australia via Malaysia. Since 2002 she has dedicated herself to Microsoft Dynamics CRM. You will struggle to find anyone more passionate about CRM solutions, or experienced in Microsoft Dynamics CRM than Gill.
Since 2004 Gill has been the face and the head of Opsis - the Sydney Microsoft Dynamics CRM Consultancy experts, a Sydney based boutique business consultancy. Gill is the lead Microsoft CRM consultant, and will look after your project throughout. Opsis's sole focus is helping businesses get more clients, better cashflow and happier staff by successfully implementing CRM strategies and technology in whichever platform (CRM Online, on premises CRM or in our cloud - OzCloudCRM) is best for the business.
Since 2002, Gill has helped small businesses, corporates and government departments with their CRM challenges, ensuring that their CRM projects - both new implementations and improvements to existing solutions - achieve results. Some implementations are simple - just some support as the out of the box solution delivers everything, or almost everything, that that the users require. Others are more complex and required working with a larger team, perhaps including coders to create a larger solution. However, every project includes scoping so the aims of the project are fully understood, that both user and management requirements are met and the users are trained.
Gill is a CRM Trainer. She has been training for over twenty five years and more recently has delivered many different courses on Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Gill is an expert at training end users to become more confident in their use of the CRM that they need to use to do their job.
She is the author of the Introduction to 'Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013' training course which has run frequently in Sydney and elsewhere, and the 'Getting started with CRM course', which is perfect way for business subject matter experts to start the see the power of Microsoft Dynamics 365 before it is customised. She is also the author of several technical CRM training courses, all based on Dynamics CRM, including 'Configuration of CRM', 'Troubleshooting CRM' and 'Automation of CRM'. For full details of these courses see CRM Training with Opsis .
She was the Lead Trainer for Microsoft as part of the team who deployed a global CRM solution across Europe, and has worked in 16 countries from US to Europe, Asia and now Australia. Gill was the lead MCT trainer for Microsoft's major upgrade of Microsoft Dynamics CRM - Microsoft CRM 2013 - which had a radically changed user interface.

Gill Walker speaks to groups of business people about CRM. She is the creator of the “Ahead of the Pack” seminars which provide key business decision makers with the information that they need to make to make those important decisions about CRM in their business. Topics covered include:
From developing a basic system from scratch when running a Support Desk in the United States in 1991, Gill has understood the importance of Customer Relationship Management, the benefits that it will bring to a business and of using technology to support the CRM strategies of the business, rather than allowing the technology or IT to be the driver of the project.
Gill is a proud member of Elouera Toastmasters and has loved working towards her Communication and Leadership awards. She has been their Vice President of Education and President. Following this she took on the challenge of being an Area Director for Hawkesbury Division in the newly formed District 90.

Until recently, she was a Venturer Leader for Normanhurst Scout Group and has been a key part of Dragonskin, the major event in the Venturer Scout calendar each year, including ensuring that all of the HQ staff of Dragonskin were fed over Easter.
For several years she was a stalwart committee member of City Business Swap - the leading business skill development club for business people.
