Yours truly at this year's Evolution Conference
Yours truly at this year's Evolution Conference

October 1st is that day of the year I’m checking my emails a bit more often than usual. But this afternoon the one that I was waiting for arrived: I’m renewed as a SharePoint Server MVP for another year. It’s my 3rd award already and receiving it makes me look  back at what I’ve done this last year. As you might know, I’m not that much of a blogger or forums guru, but I love public speaking! And this year was no exception:

  • Xylos Technology Day (October 3, 2014)
  • Microsoft Partner Tech (October 10, 2014)
  • SharePoint Connect Amsterdam (November 18-20, 2014)
  • SharePoint Saturday UK (November 29, 2014)
  • SharePoint Inspired (January 30, 2015)
  • SharePoint Saturday Stockholm (February 14, 2015)
  • BIWUG evening event (February 24, 2015)
  • SharePoint Saturday Belgium (April 17, 2015)
  • SharePoint Evolution Conference (April 20-22, 2015)
  • SharePoint Inspired (June 5, 2015)
  • ITPROceed (June 11, 2015)
  • SharePoint Saturday London (July 11, 2015)
  • SharePoint Saturday Barcelona (September 26, 2015)

The next few weeks will be busy too, starting tomorrow already:

  • Xylos Technology Day (October 2, 2015)
  • SharePoint Saturday Munich (October 10, 2015)
  • Unity Connect Amsterdam (October 12-13, 2015)
  • SharePoint Inspired (November 20, 2015)

I want to thank all event organizers for having me speak at their events! I’ve made many friends in the 4 years I’ve been doing this and arriving at a conference or user group meeting just feels like a family reunion.

My wife and two daughters have to put up with me being on the road constantly so without their support I would not be where I’m today - thanks girls!

Last but not least I want to thank my employer Xylos for supporting me in any possible way imaginable. They do a fantastic job letting me travel to all these places and spread the word on SharePoint and Office 365.
