[EN] FEB 2018 My Public Speaking And Presence

Second month of the 2018. The beginning of Chinese New Year – Year of the Earth Dog 戊戌 – and really busy month for me. First half of the month totally Down Under; it’s a new tradition (second time year by year) where I’m going to New Zealand. Some kind of busy holiday but not only. Plus few other events. So where You will be able to catch me?


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 increase my speaker’s skills here:

[EN] SEPTEMBER 2016 and my public speaking and presence

Holiday moths are over. It wasn’t strictly holiday for me. In July and August I delivered few trainings in United Kingdom (in almost every week of those two months), attended for two or three small events and speak on two community events:


  • SharePoint Saturday London|London, England|9th July {SITE} | one session: AD 2016. 2AM A Disaster just began…
  • SQL Grillen|Lingen, Emsland, Germany|19th August {SITE} | one session: 2AM A Disaster just began… UNPLUGGED

Both events were amazing. But now need to focus on September, which looks like most busiest month this year.



To hear someone, to see someone, to meet someone, to be inspired. My plans are a little flexible (even my calendar is not):


  • CloudSEC 2016|London, England|06th Sep {SITE}
  • SharePoint Saturday Warsaw |Warsaw, Poland|17th Sep {SITE}
  • MCT Zero Day Atlanta|Atlanta, USA|24th Sep {SITE}



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:

  • Microsoft IGNITE|Atlanta, USA|26th-30th Sep {SITE} | breakout session: Secure your data at rest – on demand, now!

Post Scriptum:

Missed events:

Unfortunately based on extremely busy scedule for September (only five days at home through all month) I had no choice and must decline attendance for two fantastic events at this month::

  • SQL Saturday No 534 FIRST IN POLAND!!! |Cracow, Lesser Poland|01st Oct | {LINK}

I’m sorry my friends, but It’s not possible to be in same time in two different places yet…
