[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] Reminiscence Boulevard: SharePoint Saturday UK

Between ‘IIS and OSLO’ and ‘SharePoint and Reykjavik’, I found time for crazy stopover in London/Hinckley. That means sleeping in London but partying in Hinckley (East Midlands). I had plan for attending SharePoint Saturday event for many months. I planned in last year, but had no chance. This time it was possible. SharePoint Community is very big, even not too loud as SQL Server community. They organize SharePoint Saturdays and based on my fantastic experience from Hinckley, i’m planning to attend for more in next year.


Before event in Hinckley I knew only two persons: Penelope Coventry {AUTHOR|TWITTER|LINKEDIN} and Thomas Vochten {TWITTER|BLOG}. But after SharePoint Saturday UK everthing has changed. I came for completely new community, but not technology! Surprisingly I meet a lot of SharePoint oriented companies (arround twenty exhibitors) and had rerally big problem with choosing right sessions. Organizers provided eight tracks (!) with many great sessions:
