[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:


  • Technology Risk Management Forum|Wroclaw, Poland|07-08th Sep {SITE} | security roundtable: How to measure what we should really protect in the company – a matter of prioritizing actions
  • Microsoft IGNITE|Atlanta, USA|26th-30th Sep {SITE} | breakout session: Secure your data at rest – on demand, now!



I have two confirmed training in September:


  • ISO 27001 Fundamentals |London, England|2nd Sep
  • SQL Server Administration Fundamentals|Manchester, England|12th-14th Sep


Special Events:

Two special events will held in Poland:

  • Microsoft Influencers Summit | Saturday, September 10th | Warsaw, Poland
  • 10th Anniversary of ISSA Poland | Friday, September 16th | Warsaw, Poland

And more special events will happen around MCT Zero Day and Microsoft Ignite Conference in Atlanta. Majority of them will be mingling, talking, tasting new food and new beers

  • Azure Networking Reception  | Tuesday, September 27th
  • MetaFest by Metalogics | Wednesday, September 28th
  • Pleasant Evening by Wizdom | Wednesday September 28th
  • The Krewe Meet N Greet 2016 | Sunday, September 25th
  • more events on the way

As You can see, a lot of places and dates where  you can meet me. Hope you will find a moment to say Hi!


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::

  • SharePoint & SQL Saturday in Cambridge |Cambridge, England|10th Sep | {LINK}
  • 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…

[EN] Save the Dates. 29 Dates… for SharePoint Community Events

Holiday is almost over. Some of you probably will spend last two weeks of August on Holiday, but generally speking forom September kids and from October students will back to classes. So adults will have a little bit more time for their education. In previous post I wrote about SQL Server Community Events. Here is time for SharePoint – my second important toping for daily workd. In this post I want listing all interesting (in my personal opinion) events till last day of the year, events focused for Wide Wild SQL World. I will focus on EMEA area with one or two extention for United States. Let see the dates, events and places. In a little different form than in previous post – because number of events is significantly lower, I change the structure.

[EN] 1Q 2015 and my public speaking and presence (updated)


As I expected, and as I planned – year 2015 should be more busy, more funny, more special than every previous years in my “community area age”. I can split all my public speaking and presence plans for three roles: attendee, speaker and trainer. And here are my plans for first three months of current year.


Sometimes I’m going for user group meetings, conferences, public debates or just exhibition just for attending. To hear someone, to see something, to be inspired. I have plans for attending for events below:

        Speaking is one of the favourite part of my life. I love speaking and sharing knowledge. Even sometimes I failed (based on some reasons) I always try to do my next session better and better. And I will try to get as many sessions as possible this year, because only live experience is the right way to the top. My speaking in this quarter is limited but bigger than I expected on New Year’s Eve:

        User Group Meetings

          • Sweden SQL Server User Group|Stockholm, Sweden|12th Feb {SITE|FACEBOOK}|session: TBA
          • Sweden SQL Server User Group|Malmö, Sweden|13th Feb {SITE|FACEBOOK}|session: TBA

            Actually is basement for my surviving. I have some training scheduled, and I’m working on other which I can put into my calendar. As independent trainer I can choose any training for/from any company and I have no barriers. I’ve scheduled my authored MasterClass: SharePoint 2013 for ITPro with CQURE Academy {TWITTER|SITE} another courses with The Knowledge Academy {TWITTER|SITE}, and I’m writing now two new authored courses, which should be available from beginning of second quarter. Locations? Nothing in Poland, just in United Kingdom, The Netherlands, East Midlands and Scandinavia.  I’m also open for consultancy, implementation and audits project, definitely more in this year than in previous decade.
