[EN] October 2015 and my public speaking and presence

public-speaking_thumb3_thumbSeptember was busy. Really Busy. I attended for SQL Saturday #411 in Cambridge and CloudSEC in London. And I had great opportunity to speak in Zeist, Copenhagen, Utrecht, Vianen, Wroclaw.  And most important – I found enough time to move from Leicester – where I spend last seven months) to Nottingham. Much, much better place. But of course – even I can stop, I don’t want to. So my October plans are as follows:


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


  • SQL Relay – London|London,England|12th October {SITE}
  • SQL Relay – Bristol|Bristol,England|13th October {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:
