I'm honored and delighted to announce that I've been awarded the Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award for 2016. The award is in the category of Office Servers and Services, which includes Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Skype for Business, and Yammer.
As Microsoft's MVP site states, MVPs “are community leaders who’ve demonstrated an exemplary commitment to helping others get the most out of their experience with Microsoft technologies. They share their exceptional passion, real-world knowledge, and technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.”
I have worked diligently to build technical community in the Middle Tennessee area for 8 years and during that time, I never did anything with the goal in mind of becoming an MVP. It was all for the better of the community and my fellow ‘techies.' The recognition is nice however and I hope my status will benefit my local groups, as well as my customers in the future.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our local technical communities!
