Continuous Scale CFO Sara Dickinson discusses the value she finds in connecting with other NetSuite consultants via the OdeCloud community.
Just as OdeCloud founder Osar Iyamu realized after leaving Deloitte Canada, working independently can get old pretty quick. While it’s great being your own boss and having the ability to call most of the shots, genuine and profound human connection can be difficult to find.

The idea behind the OdeCloud community was to create a platform that would bring together the best NetSuite experts from around the world, giving them the opportunity to connect with one another and be a part of something bigger than just themselves.
After receiving the invitation from Osar, Continuous Scale CFO and NetSuite expert Sara Dickinson has taken full advantage of the experience, taking it upon herself to actively expand her professional network, learn more about the ins and outs of NetSuite, and connect with other consultants on a level beyond just their respective NetSuite work.
“When Osar reached out to me several months back, I knew instantly that I wanted to know him better,” Sara said.
“So in a sense, Osar — as a human — is my ‘why’ for being (in the OdeCloud community) initially, but since then, I’ve found the OdeCloud community to be so much more than just the one person that recruited me.”
“As it turns out, one great human attracts a lot of other great humans, and I just feel really lucky to be a part of this community.”
Sara says that she’s “slowly gotten to know many of these great humans one-on-one,” and she hopes to continue reaching out to other members of the community moving forward.
It’s our greatest hope to have many more members of the OdeCloud community form bonds that completely transcend the work we do with NetSuite.
