[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}

Conferences:

Speaker:

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:

User Group Meetings:

  • London PASS Chapter|London, England|19th May {SITE}|session: WASD for Beginners
  • East Midlands PASS Chapter|Leicester,England|17th June {SITE|TWITTER}|session (or two): TBA

Conferences

  • Enterprise Security and Risk Management|London,England|28th April {SITE|TWITTER}|experts panel & session: Trust. The Primer
  • ITCamp 2015|Cluj-Napoca, Romania|21st-22nd May {SITE|TWITTER}|session: SQL Server Security in the Cloud
  • SPBiz Conference|Virtual Event, Worldwide|17th-18th June {SITE|TWITTER|FACEBOOK}|session: 2AM A Disaster Just Began

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.

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

public-speaking

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.

Attendee:

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:

            Trainer:

            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.
