[EN] MAR 2017–My Public Speaking And Presence

Next month and I’m more and more busy. Which – of course – is good. Sometimes I’m a little less busy, sometimes a little more. But still focusing on the same goal: connect people with technology. I back from long, excited, very busy trip to The World Under. New month bringing me new places and ideas. So where and about what I’ll speak?

[EN] 2Q 2015 and my public speaking and presence {updated}

Second quarter of 2015 looks really busy, even with less number of travels. I’ve few confirmed sessions at conferences and user groups, and some plan for attending only. I will miss few events and unfortunetelly reject some of them. This post unfortunatelly I publish a little late than expected, but it’s still “a beginning of second quarter”.

Attendee:

This quarter will be few events when I will attend. To hear someone, to see someone, to meet someone, to be inspired. My plans are very flexible (even my calendar is not):

User Group Meetings:

  • Leicester SQL Server User Group|Leicester, England|15th Apr {SITE|TWITTER}
  • Azure UK User Group|Birmingham, England|16th Apr {SITE}
  • Azure UK User Group|London, England|27th Apr {SITE}
  • SharePoint UK User Group|Nottingham|30th Apr {SITE}

Speaker:

Trainer:

After great event in Microsoft Norge [whrere I delivered Hybrid Cloud full day workshop as second part of LEAP Program], I will back to my favourite place: Reykjavik. As always with great cmpany at Skeifan district I will deliver my authored:

  • SharePoint 2013 Administration for ITPRo Masterclass |{REGISTRATION}

Rejected events:

Time is not flexible. My outlook calendar is but with limited level only. So based on many reasons (fortunatelly all are connected with business, not private things) I had to reject my attendee as speaker or subject matter expert at some events:

  • Microsoft Ignite
  • SQL Saturday Exeter
  • SQL Saturday Varna
  • SQL Saturday Krasnodar

I know it’s always very bad news for organizers and I have full respect for their hard job and results of choice the best speaker for their events. But I have always two side of coin:

  • I can send my submission and if something happen with my clients or business things in advance I can decide to not go, reject my session and living in shame
  • I can stay at home and watch tv still thinking ‘I could be there if I’ll submit on time’

The problem only is that I have no tv screen in my flat, so I can only look on my walls.
