In a rather bold move, Steve Smith and his team at Combined Knowledge asked me to speak at next year’s SharePoint Evolution Conference again. I’ve missed their road show this year but attended all five previous conferences. In 2013 I was selected to speak for what would be my first international speaking engagement. Since then I’ve done many talks in many countries but the Evolution Conference will always be near and dear to my heart.
When I first went to London in 2009 for the inaugural European SharePoint Best Practices Conference I was relatively new to SharePoint and I still remember meeting a lot of thought leaders in our space for the first time. When the ashcloud struck in 2010 my flight got cancelled but still managed to get there in a last minute roadtrip. A lot of overseas speakers had to cancel but nevertheless the team delivered an awesome conference once again. In 2011 and 2012 I participated in the live blogging initiative – it’s not easy to write all these blog posts and still get to enjoy the conference, but I still had a great time.
Although I knew that the team does their best to not only deliver the best content presented by the best speakers out there, the London conference is also known for its superb entertainment and evening activities. But it wasn’t until 2013 when I was a speaker myself that I fully realized that Combined Knowledge sets the standard for all conferences out there. A great atmosphere amongst the speakers, plenty of time to have fun and a superb speaker dinner in the Tower Bridge.
If you want to share in the excitement, head over to the conference website and register now! You won’t be dissapointed.
