  • Twin Cities SharePoint Saturday 2015

    I was really excited to be selected to speak at this year’s SharePoint Saturday Twin Cities in Minneapolis. It is known as one of the best SharePoint Saturday (SPS) events and I now was going to see the event first-hand! I had a little fun with the promotion of my session at the event, given that #SPSTC was only a few days after #BackToTheFutureDay (October 21st, 2015). The speaker dinner was excellent; great location, food, and a relaxed atmosphere. I had the opportunity to catch up with organizers and other speakers, some of which I hadn’t seen since the Microsoft Ignite conference in May. The organizing committee was awesome and…

    I was honored to speak at this year’s installment of SharePoint Saturday (SPS) Cincinnati – is was a spooktacular event! Every year the organizers of #SPSCincy do a Halloween theme and this year, all the speakers were given football jerseys to help them with their costume. Others, well, they brought there own: When I arrived at the event, the theme was in full swing – decorations and people dressed as their favorite gorilla, princess, or Star Wars character. I attended several great sessions during the day – if you aren’t attending SPS events, you are really missing out on high-quality, free content! As I prepared for my session, I grabbed…
