By the end of December, we at SQLskills will have remotely presented to 87 user groups and PASS virtual chapters around the world in 2015!
We’d love to present remotely for your user group in 2016, anywhere in the world. It’s not feasible for us to travel to user groups or SQL Saturdays unless we’re already in that particular city, but remote presentations are easy to do and are becoming more and more popular (we haven’t had any bandwidth problems doing remote presentations to groups as far away as South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, plus Poland, Canada, Belgium, Netherlands, Ukraine, Ireland, UK, Israel, Denmark, Austria). This way we can spread the community love around user groups everywhere that we wouldn’t usually get to in person.
We have our own Webex accounts which we generally use, or we can use your GoToMeeting or Webex. We prefer not to use Lync as we’ve had too many problems with it around user group laptops and sound.
So, calling all user group leaders! If you’d like one of us (me, Kimberly, Jon, Erin, Glenn, Tim) to present remotely for you in 2016 (or maybe even multiple times), send me an email including:
- Details of which user group you represent
- The usual day of the month, meeting time, and timezone of the user group
- Which months you have available, starting in January 2016
And I’ll let you know who’s available with what topics so you can pick.
What’s the catch? There is no catch. We’re just continuing our community involvement next year and we all love presenting :-)
And don’t think that because you’re only reading this now that we can’t fit you in – send me an email and we’ll see what we can do.
We’re really looking forward to engaging with you all!
PS By all means pass the word on to any SharePoint and .Net user group leaders you know too.
