New Year began a month ago. January was pretty busy for me in a business way. I delivered two weeks of MOC (Microsoft Official Course) training plus a couple of days of my new authored, bespoke SharePoint Online course for pretty big (800 peoples) company in the UK. More days follow in an upcoming month. I attended only for one User Group Meeting – which was our PASS East Midlands User Group – where Stuart Moore {T|B} and Steph Middleton {T} delivered two interesting sessions.

But February will me probably most interesting month this year (in my speaker’s life). Based on earlier submissions and selections, on Saturday I’m going to the End of the World – New Zealand. Time difference +13H! Time of travel 38H. In both long hauls, I’ll visit Beijing (again) and Shanghai (first time). So where and about what I’ll speak?


Speaking is most important part of all my events. As many of us – The Speakers – we love it. So, of course I will have some chance to increasing my speakers skills here:
