I’ll be speaking at the European SharePoint Conference


I’m very pleased to let you know that I will be speaking at the European SharePoint Conference in Berlin 17-20 October of this year. I will be presenting two sessions, a keynote and a normal break out session.

The key note on October 19 will be a joined session with Spencer Harbar (@harbars) and the title of this session will be “Successful Deployment: Lessons Learned From the Field “.
This is what the keynote will be all about:
Take a whirlwind tour of lessons from the field since the release of SharePoint Server 2010 to understand the key factors of a successful roll out in the enterprise across planning, architecture, implementation, deployment and operations. Based upon some of the most common pitfalls and worst practices of early adopters and the key challenges they have faced, the keynote will detail the lessons learnt alongside best practices to help ensure a successful deployment. Ideal for all disciplines, including Information Workers, Business Decision Makers, Developers and IT Professionals.

The break out session will be about “Office 365: Delivering the Power of Cloud Productivity”.
Understand the key components of Office 365 and how they deliver the power of cloud productivity to organizations of all sizes. Focus on the key benefits, different editions, planning considerations, how to move to the cloud, integration with on premise. The content will be targeted at a broad audience across all SharePoint disciplines (information workers, business decision makers, developers and IT Pros).

In a way it’s full circle for me, as the SharePoint Conference in Berlin in 2007 was the first conference for me as a speaker.

I’m really looking forward to the conference in Berlin and I hope to meet many of you there!
