White papers are a great way of promoting your skills to the global Oracle Applications Install base. Contractors Network  has an agreement in place that encourages Oracle Contractors to author White Papers on a specific subject, which is then marketed globally by our world wide local offices via our website, the Blog, Telemarketing campaigns and as handouts at the various Conferences and Special Interest Groups where we exhibit and present.
The rewards are two fold, one is the recognition within the market place as the author and the second is to share in the financial rewards if the white paper you write opens the door and ends in securing business wherever in the world.
The papers will be judged by Bob Barnett, Nic Connor, Steven Godkin, Andrea Toscani, Stefano Pancani, Rory Dwyer, Jason Howlett and Matt Jenkins all of whom are Directors at various offices and cover all of the Oracle Technology.

The White Papers will be judged on content, accuracy and style of writing.
We have a template which is also a White Paper on how to write a White Paper  - so if you are interested please contact myself on or telephone your local Contractors Network Office to find out more today.

All Papers are to be submitted by end of March 2009 (This is to ensure that we meet presentation deadlines globally for local User Group Conferences)

Any questions please let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Ps. Congratulations on last years winners Matthew Bezuidenhout, Richard Byrom & Jeremy Coleman.
